Three Goals to Heaven!


Royston town U10 girls travelled to Stevenage in their latest Div 2 fixture full of confidence after last week’s performance. It was a cagey start to the game with both teams passing the ball well without creating a clear chance, but it was Royston who started to make their possession count forcing a series of corners. It was from one of these corners that town took the lead as Ellie fired in the ball which came off Emer into the net giving the Stevenage keeper no chance. Royston continued to press and good running from Izzy resulted in another corner for Town which Ellie again fired in and this time the ball cannoned off the home defender to extend Royston’s lead. Some excellent defending from Emma and Olivia kept the Stevenage attackers at bay through to half time.

Royston started the second half slowly and it was down to Lydia in goal to preserve the lead with some commanding goal keeping.  With Taiah and Kathryn settling down the Town defence it allowed the hard working Bryony to run at the Stevenage back line and feed the ball through to Katie who tucked the ball home with a clinical finish to make the final score Stevenage 0-3 Royston.
Another good performance by the whole team, we passed the ball really well at times.
