Disappointing game for 1s
This Saturday, Henley travelled away to face Oxford, with only one point separating the two teams in the table.
After a quiet warm up, Henley started slowly and soon came to realise that Oxford had a couple of players they hadn’t seen before! Play was fairly even with both sides making inroads into each other’s half, but it was Oxford that broke the deadlock first with a very well struck goal from their number 5 (a new recruit from Holland!). Henley did respond well to this however, and put together some good passages of play eventually resulting in a short corner. Set play decision taken, the corner was injected to Kat Green whose deadly disguise pass was sent goal wards and deftly deflected into the back of the net by the waiting Louisa England. Back to 1-1.
Sadly however, this was not the resurgence that Henley had hoped for. Sometimes you have days where things just don’t go your way - and this, unfortunately was one of them! Despite their best efforts and a high individual work rate, the Henley team were unable to stop “Number 5” from scoring 3 more very impressive goals and the game finished 1 - 4.
