Our U18 Crystals hosted Woburn & Wavendon Lionesses at Derwent Drive, 2nd v 3rd in the league. Crystals began slowly and Woburn had the better of the first 20 mins, without having too many good attempts on goal. A couple of changes and a bit of tinkering and Crystals soon gained control of the match, and should have gone in ahead at the break, but the half ended goalless.
The second half began as the first ended with Crystals controlling most of the game, and good chances started to follow. Crystals took the lead when the ball was won back and whipped in early, Woburn appealing for offside, the goalkeeper clearing the ball only for Megan Pugh to chip the keeper from outside the area with a first time effort. The game continued in the same vain, and Crystals soon added two more from Rozalia Zycinska, her second calmly taken, rounding the keeper and slotting home. Crystals added a fourth in the dying minutes through Madi Sharp and that’s how it ended with a comfortable 4-0 victory, keeping Crystals well in the hunt at the top of the table.
Sadie O’Sullivan was rightly named POTM with an excellent performance.

Well done to the girls today. Playing on a full size 7-a-side pitch with 6 players and no subs, you all did so well. We were travelling quite early to Mursley but all the girls kept smiling. Lucy had great kicks out and some fantastic saves today. Sophia driving forward from the back was good and helping in midfield when required. Gracie kept their defenders busy today and was rewarded with another 2 goals and opposition’s player of the match. Allegra showed a battling display in midfield, tackles, driving forward, so close to scoring, goals are coming. Sienna was great, smashing balls away from goal and some massive kicks up to midfield, well done and a great rear guard we have with you. Peyton was supporters’ player, you did about 26 miles of running! Great support from the side lines as usual, the girls hear your support every week and it makes such a difference so thank you all.
Great performance today by Jets in the third place playoff for the group to get a comfortable win against a good physical Wixam team. Goals by Kitty (2), Martha (2) and Eloise. Some great defending and good counter attacking today.
Girl of the match: Martha
