Wealdstone Girls 0 – 1 Oxford City Girls

On Sunday we played Oxford City in the reverse fixture of our opening game of the season, which we lost 4-1.

Since then Stones have added four new girls to the squad, but lost our goalkeeper, so goalkeeping duties were shared between Steffi Sarratt and Megan Craig. The first half saw us  dominate, playing some good football, and we were unlucky not to go in front at half time – Steph Chapman had a shot go just wide after battling her way through the Oxford defence, and Megan Craig saw her lofted shot come back off the bar.

The second half started in much the same way, but we couldn’t score the goal our football  deserved. Our defence had played superbly, but poor marking at a corner allowed Oxford to score mid-way through the second half. We pressed for an equaliser, without seriously troubling their goalkeeper. Overall ,a very good performance, echoed by the Oxford Manager
