Reserves earn draw against Flyers
Boro's Ladies reserves earned a point in a tough game with Winchester City Flyers.
The reserve team had a delayed kick-off for their game against Winchester City Flyers but both teams went after the opening goal from the off.
Unfortunately, after just five minutes, Nat Pollard had to come off due to an ankle injury which left The Boro' with the bare 11 players.
The Flyers were a young team with good fitness and great speed. However, the determination, team work and calmness that Borough showed proved to be the way forward.
This was fast pace game with decent on floor football and opportunities for both teams to break the deadlock.
There were occasional breaks from City, causing pressure on the back four but with the support from the middle and some amazing saves from Erin Atickinson Gosport kept a clean sheet leaning into the second half.
After a brief half-time talk from the Alex, Borough's started the second half with several attempts on goal by Zoe Jessy, Charlie Scott and Charlotte Roli. Unfortunately none reached the back of the net due to some great saves or clearances from City.
The frustration was growing from both teams - especially as both had goals disallowed for off side.
Despite a final push from each team the score sheet was kept clean and the final whistle resulted in a decent and well deserved draw.
This was a great game for the reserves with every player working extremely hard and all put in every bit of effort they could.
Player of the match was Erin Atinkinson who made some amazing saves and demonstrated great calmness, teamwork and support for the team.
Borough Reserves currently stand top of the League and look forward to a home game on Sunday against Alton United Ladies.
