Annie’s showed no nerves; she played her own game. She wowed with her ball carrying skills, changed direction, and fizzed or curled her passes.

The game exploded into life when ice-cool Abi and Viv scored two goals in quick succession. Astonishing teamwork, communication, and encouragement displayed throughout. The visitors created nothing clean-cut until a shot ballooned over Iman’s net. Then, John Hampden scored two goals on the break.

The visitors were in the ascendency, but Iman showed her metal when she made two point blank saves. The hosts refused to accept defeat and the home crowd erupted in support! Viv sprinted past two defenders and laid on a made-to-measure pass to Abi who drilled a sweeping shot past the leaping keeper.

Phil & Jim was rocking to its foundations as the raucous crowd could taste victory. Helena left the visitors in despair when she showed cool composure by drilling a shot past the diving keeper.
