Another tight EH cup competition win for the Eagles.....coaches finger nails were fairly short after the 1 v 0 victory over Old Bristolians. From the beginning we dominated the attack spent a lot of time in their 23 area, forcing a number of corners and forcing the OB's GKer to make many saves. The Eagles goal came mid way through the first half from open play via birthday girl Olivia, slotting home from a cross delivered from Millie. Our mids Tabby, Amy, Mariel, Luci, Rosie and Ruby worked very hard, control and chasing down the ball. The second half become a more defensive match with Alys and Nia at the back putting in strong performances, to repel the OB's forwards. Again, Eagles attack the goal many time yet the OB's defence held strong with Ellie at the other end making several vital saves in the second half keeping another clean sheet. The last 10 minutes the Eagles played a very good defensive game, marking and communication was the best so far this season. The girls commitment was the best yet, Nia taking a nasty hit on the foot putting herself in the way of the ball, Alys brought down heavily by OB's forwards to stop a dangerous attack and Kara taking one for the team receiving a green card stopping another dangerous OB's attack. GREAT fighting spirit, well done ladies. Tabby again received OB's player vote. Well done again to the our super subs, coming on to do a job for the team. My MoM was a tough one to call, but goes to Alys, and close second to Nia (certainly gets the bravery award) both for their outstanding effort in defence.The Eagles now lead the EH West C2 group with 6 pts with 2 wins from 2.
