Scorers: Caldwell, Turrell, Orridge-Golding
Today was the day Alexandra Park Ladies could win there 1st League Title. There was message going around asking has anyone got the pegs (twigs and forks) for the goal nets. Luckily, there was a APY game going on before and they said we could use theirs. (Problem solved)
The match started well for AP and I believe we where the better team in the 10mins. The team started to pressure Regents Park high up the pitch and that resulted in are first corner of the match. Jennah are normal corner taker wasnt playing today so Chelsea took the corner. They was so much movement in the was in box Regents Park could handle it. Chelsea inswinging corner was perfectly met by are current top scorer Tracey who headed it into the top corner. The keeper didn’t even move. 1-0 to AP and 1 step closer to the League Title. Come On AP!!!
Regent Park started to get into the game after we scored are 1st goal and the Leagues top goal scorer with over 30 goals, Marina was getting more involved with the game but Harry and Jean was standing firm and making some excellent tackles.
AP started passing the ball around and I think it was Athena who passed the ball to Chelsea who who did a 360 turn and sent the defender the wrong way and drove to the edge of the box and shot: As soon as I hit it I thought this is going wide but luckily Beth came running in and tapped it in for 2-0. Yesssss. It was such a great move from all of the team. 2-0 at Half Time. We Can Do This Girls!!!
The 2nd half started slowly and Regents Park was finding they where was back into the game and was causing us some problem. Kelly who has been brilliant for us all season was making some amazing saves. Regent Park then has a goal disallowed for offside and that was are warning that they was not going to give up.
Sorry can’t remember much about there 2 goals that they scored or maybe I have just blocked it from my mind. Haha.
But anyways it was now 2-2 and it was officially game back on.
AP was starting to created more chances. Chelsea did some amazing skills and went pass 3 players and passed the ball to Tracey who’s 35 yard shot just when over the bar. We was getting closer.
Then in the final 4mins of the game Tracey ran down the wing, there was about 3 AP players in the box and Chelsea was on the edge of the box. I was waiting for the cross to go into the to box but Tracey perfect pass came straight to me. So many thoughts was going through my head; Should I pass, should I just smash it through all players in front of me but gladly I choose the right options and calmly slotted it into the bottom corner.
I had just scored the winning goal to win us the League and thanks to the team and Tracey awesome pass. BUZZINGGGG
