A beautiful day for football on an excellent pitch , the Birkdale girls started well again this week attacking from the start but for some great goalkeeping from Carla (Crosby keeper) but she couldn’t stop them all and it was Macy who had a great run from midfield to score the first goal…1-0….
Now the goals came thick and fast with Ava calmly finishing in the bottom right corner but Crosby were not out of it yet with a break Alice scored a great goal to make it …2-1….
Then it was Birkdale’s turn again with Macy breaking free to smash in the 3rd and her 50th goal of the season (well done) ….3-1……
It was a good open game now with Crosby coming close a few times but Megan and Emily together with Faye were doing well stopping Alice and the Crosby attack doing any more damage and it was Emily whom got on the score sheet next advancing forward for a corner she got a shot towards goal that just crept in past the post……4-1…..half time.
The second half was again a good game with both teams getting chances but with excellent defending and goal- keeping there were no more goals until half way through when Macy had a run at goal Carla made a great save but the ball was loose and Molly was there to score a great poachers goal….5-1…….full time.
Birkdale girls and parents send their best wishes to Mia
