Big hearts, tired legs, Ducks beaten in Semis

By

A great game and a great performance as Ducks fail to reach the final.

There's not a lot that can be said about this game. This Aylesbury U14 girls team has come a long way since the opening game of this season and this game showed everything that is good about the team. At the start of the season not only were they stepping up to the 11 a-side format but they also had four new players that had played little football between them before this season, so the way the girls have bonded as a unit is a credit to the girls and the coaches. This game was all about them, they worked for each other, they worked for the coach and they came off the pitch exhausted having given everything to try and beat a very good Chesham side. A Chesham side who, with plenty of pace and a decent amount of skill, needed no second invitation as they capitalised on a defensive mistake to make it 1-0 after the first two minutes. Shots a plenty from Aylesbury who were clearly up for it, but it was Katie O'KEEFFE who hustled the ball off the defender after a poor goal kick and slotted calmly home pas the Chesham keeper.
From the kick-off it looked like it could be our day, as this time Iona LAWSON went hustling for the ball in the Chesham box and came out with a scrambled goal to make it 2-1. Game on and it looked just possible that Aylesbury might make this. However, five minutes later Chesham equalised after another very poor defensive error let one of the quickest girls on the pitch in. The next ten minutes looked a nervy scrappy affair, but the Aylesbury girls were putting absolutely everything into this game with Natasha Pickering and Katie NORMAN both being rotated off to catch breath. Unfortunately, the game was taken away from us with ten minutes left on the clock as they scored to make it 3-2 and then again in the final minute of the game to make it 4-2.
Heather SAVAGE was awarded Player of the Match for her tireless work in defence. It was a superb performance from the girls and they should be proud of the way they contained Chesham and in large parts of the game outplayed them. The game was played in great spirit in front of a larger than normal crowd and it is such a shame they couldn't hang on to their lead.
