U16 Girls – County Cup: STB Vs Madeley

Posted: November 9th, 2014

STB played against Madeley away on Thursday 6th November in the County Cup. STB dominated possession from the kick off and had 3 or 4 close chances that the Madeley goalkeeper made great saves from. Abbie Rathbone and Charlie Awde continued to threaten up front and Charlie scored a great looping shot to make the score 1-0. Abbie Rathbone scored a second which was well deserved following a number of positive forward runs. Against the run of play, Madeley scored one back with a deflected shot to make the score 2-1 at half time.

In the second half both teams defended well and chances were few and far between. Then with the light almost gone from the sky, Madeley pounced on a loose ball and Evie Holt had to make 2 excellent saves to keep STB in the lead. In the last minute, Charlie Awde made the victory safe with another great shot. Well done to all players who are now in the quarter finals of the cup.
