00918 hits since September 19, 2009

The under 10s got their season off to a flying start with a comfortable 4-0 win versus Bedwell Rangers at Ickleford. With the luxury of having a full squad to choose from, the Belles never looked back after taking the lead through Emily after only 9 minutes. The lead was doubled 6 minutes later when Sadie scored her first goal for the club on 15 minutes after good running with the ball by Emily. Sadie then doubled her personal tally with a finely taken goal on 18 minutes. All credit to Bedwell as they pressed forward looking for a goal but with Sasa and Ciara in midfield, Meg and Nicole in defence and Tanya in goal Bedwell were restricted to only two shots on goal in the whole half.

Half time 3-0

The second half started as the first half finished, with the Belles in control of midfield,this time with Jess and Ursula and they continued to push for a fourth goal. Bedwell became increasingly indebted to their goalkeeper as she saved goal bound shots from Sadie, Emily and Kinnari. The home teams goal wasn’t seriously threatened in the second half and the girls were rewarded with a fourth goal, from Emily, on 37 minutes after another dazzling run by her up the left wing. The Bedwell goalkeeper then pulled off the save of the game, and maybe the season, when she stopped a “Sadie screamer”in full flight , from hitting the back of the net in the last minute.
