Second half played out much the same, but Sonning had lifted their game, which resulted in a well taken PC from a straight shot they evened up the score. 1-1.... Making our way back for the restart... No one saw it coming but our fiery and fearless Bex uttered the words that forever will be etched in PHC Chiswick folklore...."How does that make you feel???" At that moment all went quiet as 11 internal monologues were thinking "Not that good actually Bex, like hell we are going to let Sonning take this from us." So just like the Irish anthem with a PHC twist....Chiswick Chiswick together we shall stand, shoulder to shoulder we will answer Bex's call.
So with Bex's words ringing in our ears it had set a light and fire in our belly's, we lifted our intensity and our desire, which came with reward. Again a nice piece of passing from the backs through to the midfield from Lisa Crane into Tee and with a bit of African booty and body blocking on their centre back Rhianna Buchanan was able to fire off a shot within striking distance. The ice-breaker, 2-1. Not content we came at them again and this time a replay of the last goal but with some subtle touches in the D from Tee and a well-timed deflection from Alex Earnshaw saw the score jump to 3-1.
A special mention to Millie- who lead the from the back, put her body on the line and pulled out some superman saves with the support of her wingman KD and Mary and the relentless cover defence of Gigi and Cath.
DoD: Tee Barrack- Clean sheet Millie....
MoM: Rhianna- Work rate and scoring.
