"Oh flippin Sunday games!" is how some of the Chiswick ladies 1’s felt after a few drinks on Saturday night. But that’s what happens with catch up games, they are played on a bloody Sunday!
The game started off on the back foot with Maidenhead scoring first goal and Chiswick took this as a wakeup call to realise that we can’t lose this! First goal was from Rebecca Smith off a short corner which was a result of some skilful ball control by Rhianna Buchannan winning the foul in the ‘D’.
Second goal was a real super team effort of passing skills which led into a ball passed to Lisa Crane who then found the stick of Tee Barrack who slotted in a second goal.
Second half, possession was all in Chiswick’s control resulting into many short corners which led to two goals from Lindsay Forbes and Tee Barrack caused from a Forbes Straight strike and a super post pass from Mary Gamble.
A penalty flick was then awarded to Maidenhead. Kylie Burnett again stepped up for the team and yet another epic save! She was unstoppable today!
Some sleek work from Cushla Bowie in defence led to a quick ball from defence into mid field which led to the final goal. This goal can only described as true Yankee touch down celebration (clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose!) As a defender Jen Romano’s mission has been to score a goal for the team and yes, some dreams come true! A great pass from midfield led to ball being driven into the D by Tee Barrack and straight across in the path of Jen Romano who smashed it home for the Chiswick ladies and yes it was a dive on the knees fist pump, celebrations.
We all celebrated the epic win and yes it was so worth coming out on a Sunday!
MOM: Kylie awesome saves including a penalty flick (and also getting soaked wet before the match to shield a team mate when the pitch was being watered! Legend)
DOD: Jen Romano for like the best ever goal celebration the team has ever seen!
