This was our 4th league game of the season.
Both teams had started with 3 wins from 3 and only 1 goal seperated both teams in the table in favour of Rovers. Hough End was looking good grass cut and pitch lined ahead of a very entertaining game of football. Rovers had the best of the opening exchanges with Hannah and Helen both going close.
The teams good start forced Rylands into a couple of early changes which didnt really affect the pattern of the half as the greens went in search of the first goal.
Right on half time Rovers got a free kick which Rhian took. Her effort produced a smart save from the Rylands keeper to keep it all square at half time.
Both teams came out and went for it second half. Rovers were starting to create the chances the keeper produced 2 more good saves from Amelia and Tamsins efforts. Cat went through on goal the keeper just managed to keep it out. Rylands best chance of the game came from a cross which Rhian managed to beat the striker to the ball before she could get a shot off. A long range effort from Rylands produced a good save from Alex in the Rovers goal.
Tamsin went through again for Rovers late on only to be foiled by the Rylands keeper.
Managers point of view.
This was a great effort from all of the players. We were unlucky not to come away with all the points but none the less this was a very important point for the club. The result was also Rovers 3rd clean sheet in a row setting a new record for Rovers.
Well done to everyone amazing achievement .
