Dundee Uni II 1 - 2 Madras
It was getting very frustrating...we have been playing reasonably well, scoring goals yet not winning!!!
This week, we traveled to play Dundee Uni II who beat us 2 weeks ago in the league cup. That had been a close game and could have gone either way so we knew we stood a chance.
Once again we started positively with all the pressure and Jade hitting the post in the first 10 minutes. However, Dundee Uni took first blood with a break away goal. I think we all started to think if this was a replay of 2 weeks ago.
The goal changed something in Madras and we started to really stick in and win the 50-50 balls. A well worked move between Karen and Jade saw Jade get a more than deserved equaliser.
Half time 1-1
The second half started and Madras continued to perform well all over the pitch. It was a much better team performance than 2 weeks ago and the hard work paid off when Marianne put Madras ahead.
Claire got a nasty bash on the finger (to put it nicely!) and had to be substituted with only 5 minutes left however Madras saw out the time to win the match. Well done girls!
Our first win of the season and good timing too - it was Mandy's 40th birthday which we celebrated with a chocolate cake...courtesy of Jade.
We will be looking to add to this win when we travel to play Grove this weekend.
