Our first group game was against a strong Ascot team, who had some very skilful players with amazingly strong and accurate shots on goal. They took advantage of our slightly sleepy start and they came away with a deserving win.
We then faced Bangkok Prep, who underestimated our ability as the girls stepped up and found their confidence. Some lovely passing and attacking play saw lissa slot in a goal in the first half taking the lead 1-0. In the second half, the girls continued to push in attack, hungry for a second goal. The defence were strong and consistent, being lead by Natalie throughout. Finishing 1-0.
This saw us through to the semi finals against well known opposition SIS. After our last game at the Pattaya Games finished 1-1, the girls knew they had to maintain their concentration and push for a goal early. As always, it was a fantastic game and the girls really pulled together to win 1-0, which saw us into the final.
The final took us against Ascot once again. With the aim to put in an improved performance from the first. The girls worked really hard to limit their skilled strikers, with birthday girl and goalkeeper Nane being challenged with every shot. She was invaluable and she made Ascot’s game very difficult. Sadly, we weren’t able to completely dampen them, but with far more chances for us, the girls really stepped up and deservedly came 2nd overall.
A fantastic morning which everyone enjoyed and these girls are real role models for the younger years to look up to.
