Hitchin Town Belles U12 2 v 0 St. Albans City
Players: Amy (g), Abigail, Emily, Alice, Ilana, Leticia, Leah, Helen, Fleur, Elodie, Alex, Elisia
It was a great start to the season for the Under 12`s beating St` Albans City 2-0. Hitchin started off well with some good passing moves and most of the possession. After about 15 minutes Hitchin scored with a good shot from the edge of the area by Elodie. Hitchin pressed hard through the rest of the half despite good opposition.
The second half continued in a similar way and Hitchin had a few more chances. Alex had a good shot saved by the keeper. Another chance was created by some good passing in midfield and Elodie scored another goal.
Hitchins goalkeeper Amy had two shots to save thanks to some very strong marking by the defence.
The whole team played very well and deserved the win.
Manager Terry had great trouble in choosing girl of the match. It went to Leah who played really well in defence. Ilana was awarded most improved player.
