Friendly : Witney Vikings U15 1-6 Charlbury U16 Girls
With no league match arranged for the 8th weekend in a row, Charlbury traveled to Witney Vikings for a friendly. The narrow pitch led to a competitive game with Charlbury really unable to capitalize on their strength of using the wide players and having challenges to spring the offisde trap. That said, the girls did enough and played some neat rondo style football to carve out a number of openings. The finishing was clinical with Abby ratching up 4 goals and Ruby the other 2. Witney, playing a year up kept battling and got a consolation goal with the last kick of the game.

The match was slow to start but soon warmed up and included a number of fantastic moves from the girls that led to chances being created. Molly W played a strong first half in central midfield, Libby, Millie and Izzy were assured in defence and Grace continually ran at Summertown’s defence. Our goalkeeper in the first half was Gracie and in the second half was Adelaide. Both made some terrific saves.The match ended in a narrow 0-1 defeat with the Summertown coach agreeing a draw would be a fairer result.
