Chilcote Girls vs Hollywood Girls

On Friday 17th November the Chilcote Girls' football team played their sixth league fixture against Hollywood school. This would be their last game before the winter break.

The game started badly for Chilcote as Hollywood came flying out of the blocks and put Chilcote under immediate pressure. They won a couple of corners in a row and from one of these Chilcote cleared the ball but it got played back in to a Hollywood player who was free in the area. She turned and slotted the ball home with ease. From then on Chilcote fought their way into the match. They gradually got more possession and moved up the pitch to put the Hollywood goal under some pressure. After 10 minutes, Tamsin showed lovely skill to turn and pass the ball to Anna who ran a long way with the ball before slotting it into the corner past the keeper to make it 1v1.

In the second half, Chilcote were playing down hill and their confidence was high. They had a lot of the ball and put Hollywood under quite a bit of pressure. They just could not find a way past their keeper until Anna passed the ball to Tamsin on the edge of the box she shot but it went to Summer who turned and fired the ball under the keeper to make it 2v1. Chilcote survived a late rally from Hollywood and one glorious chance for them to equalize to win the tight game 2v1.

An excellent comeback and a great performance from the girls. Well done to all involved!!!
