Zero points for Ladies 1s
Last Saturday, the Henley Ladies 1s team had a tough match against Wycombe.
Henley started with a strong attacking line up which led to a lot of chances and attacks towards Wycombe’s goal, but the ball couldn’t quite reach the net. Thinking tactically, Ellie Roseff noticed the oppositions key player and managed to mark her out of the game effectively, breaking down Wycombe’s play. Strong passes by Henley’s midfield line through to the forwards kept the pressure on Wycombe’s defense, with the majority of the play in Wycombe’s back quarter. Wycombe kept challenging with several counter-attacks, but Henley’s defensive line were able to deliver strong block tackles, breaking down play and disallowing Wycombe’s shots on goal. The first half finished with a 0-0 draw.
In the start of the second half, Wycombe started strong and managed to get the ball into Henley’s D, however, Henley’s goalkeeper Hannah Lavis reacted quickly, kicking the ball out before it crossed the goal line. A quick interception from Wycombe led to them dribbling down the wing and into Henley’s D, slipping past the Henley defense and scoring a goal. A quick decision by Henley’s defense led to a strong ball forwards down the left, reaching Henley’s forwards and a strike at goal, however Wycombe were ready and waiting, denying any goals Henley wanted the equalizer and showed great skill across the pitch, but unfortunately there wasn’t enough time and the final whistle blew.
