Verslag - Away to VVC
5 oktober 2016
Just over three weeks ago our young stars travelled out to the Nieuw Vennep to test their progress against VVC. Judging by the investment VVC are making in girls football, this was not going to be an easy game. Despite starting brightly and challenging well, the girls found themselves two-nil down after twenty minutes. But the belief was still there and AFC managed to pull one back and even came close to equalising. Sadly Nikki was marginally off-side, when she tapped in. After the break the squad still full of spirit, stepped up another gear. The equaliser fell in the first few minutes of the second half. Only minutes later AFC took the lead with Nikki completing her hattrick. It was then VVC’s turn to gather their strength and profited from two small errors in our defence to regain the lead. The tension was now increasing as it now became evident that this battle could end in victory for either side. All the girls stayed focused realizing they that a good chance to exploit the VVC backs with Nikki’s pace. The tactics provided by Chantal, proved successful, when Nikki scored not once, not twice but three times to bend VVC’s will, secure victory and another three points. It was an unbelievable exciting contest and compliments to every single girl who played. It was a great team performance. Thank you to Steve for taking up the flag that day and all the supporters who came out to cheer on the girls.
