The Curse of Oaklands Lane is Shattered at Last !

Girls U13s Up and Running by Ed Slade

22/09/2018 10am Home game against Herts Reds

Harvesters came into the game still searching for their first win of the season. With the full backing of the board the manager has gone for a very attacking line up with Millie, Meeka, Florence, Sai and Charlotte all starting. It feels like a cup final !

Players, coaches, fans and ref are all ready for kick off – just need some goals which is quickly sorted.

And we’re off ! And the attacking line up is paying dividends from the first whistle. Harvesters are enjoying most of the possession with Maisie, Daisy and Alesha mopping up at the back.

The first half sees 3 shots on target for Harvesters with a stunning 100% conversion ratio. 2 goals for Millie and 1 for Meeka. As well as being outplayed the Reds are also having no luck whatsoever as they hit the post and miss a sitter before pulling one back to reach half time at 3-1 to the home side.

The second half starts in similar fashion to the first and it is not long before Millie bags her hat trick. That said the Reds are starting to exert some authority and some fine saves from Gwen protect our 4-1 lead. Despite their growing possession Reds lose the ball in the middle of the park and a smart pass finds Meeka who scores her second.

The Reds don’t let their heads drop despite the 5-1 score line and continue to press the Harvesters defence. Their striker and Gwen both go for the same ball and the ref blows for a goal kick. No wait, he has given a penalty ! Tough call and the replays aren’t clear. Some refs would give it others would wave play on. There is no VAR here so the ref’s decision is final. Gwen has no chance with the penalty which is crashed into the top left corner.

5-2 with five minutes to play. Harvesters are looking understandably tired. They are holding a deep line and playing on the counter now but that is also working just fine as out of nowhere Charlotte grabs a well deserved goal to make it 6-2.

As the final whistle blows the relief spreads in waves across the team as they break their duck in dramatic style. Linking hands they dive Klinsman style in front of their adoring fans.

The season starts right here !
