Disappointing start for 1s

Henley Ladies 1s travelled to Southgate for their first league game of the season, hoping to start the season with a bang following their successful preseason preparation.

Henley started strong from the whistle, using all players to push forwards into Southgate's half. A continuous high press put pressure on Southgate's defence causing them to make errors. An attacking play up the left hand side led to the ball being slipped to captain Georgie Metcalfe who evaded a defender and fired the ball into the goal, giving Henley an early lead. Henley continued this high intensity with wave after wave of attacking play, stopping Southgate from having much possession. A free hit at the top of the D saw Mel Joyce calmly fire the ball towards the goal, finding Georgie Metcalfe's stick which angled the ball into the net once again. However, Southgate were not going to give up, and from a missed Henley penalty corner, mounted a quick counter attack, outrunning Henley's defence and leading to their first goal. Half time score, Henley 2 - Southgate 1. The second half told a different story. Southgate piled the pressure on Henley, forcing errors and beating players with speed and skills, scoring three quick goals within 10 minutes. A rattled Henley side managed to regain composure and possession, however despite finishing strongly, Henley were unable to make a comeback. The game finished 4-2 leaving the visitors disappointed.
