D1 United Women Continue Unbeaten Streak
Friday night lights down at Braefoot as D1 United women took on Lakehill on their own patch.

Lakehill started the brighter or perhaps just hungrier...either way they were on the attack early & often. While the Wests struggled to get into the game.

Corner after corner for Lakehill but with no end product. Needless to say there was a bit of tension on the sidelines as the Wests were under pressure.

Slowly but surely the away side started to impose themselves on the game & after a short amount of sustained pressure the break through game on a nice through ball to B who made no mistake with her finish (on her favourite field).

Half time then & 0-1 to the Wests. Pretty obvious that Lakehill were going to come out strong after the interval & try throwing everything including the kitchen sink into the attack.

This meant that gaps opened up & the harder Lakehill tried to get back level, the more the United women were able to hold of the game.

The second goal of the game came via a pass from Belle & then a lung busting run by Emily out of nowhere. She breezed past her defender & shot across the keeper to hit the post & go in. An amazing goal that drove the bench crazy.

Corner after corner again for Lakehill, but this time they managed to grab a goal back. With the score at 1-2 it was tense on the sidelines again but within a matter of minutes the two goal advantage had been restored via Michelle.

Having conceded a goal seemed to spur the Wests on all the more & some very good closing down on the Lakehill defence by Michelle & her fellow forwards saw the ball break lose & Michelle scored with a left foot finish to the top shelf. I don't think the keeper even moved.

Final score 1-3 to United.

Great way to start the weekend & fun times with the team at the bar afterwards.
