Ladies start their season with a comprehensive 4-0 win over Tavern OB Ladies

Great team performance, something to build on for the season

On a beautifully sunny afternoon and in front of a very supportive crowd, the ladies began their league campaign with an excellent 4-0 win over Tavern OB Ladies. An even first half saw Fakenham take the lead after 37 minutes when a free kick by Maddie Smith 15 meters out from the edge of the penalty area caught the wind and sailed over the upstretched arms of the Tavern Ladies keeper Zoe Gibbons and into the far side of the goal. Tavern's main weapon was the long ball over the top of the Fakenham defence by No 4 Sophie Fuller but these were either overhit or safely taken by Chloe Easter in the Fakenham goal or cleared by the defence. On the right wing Fakenham's Fanny Danskanen was prominent in most moves, constantly getting past her marker but never quite able to put a telling pass into the Tavern penalty area. Sam King had a couple of half chances but either missed the target or the shot was saved by the keeper. The second half saw Fakenham begin to take almost total control of the game, with excellent passing spliting the Tavern defence time after time and Sam King and Jenifer Codman always looking for the opportunity to get in behind the defenders. Fakenham's second goal came from Jenifer Codman who latched onto a ball hit over the Tavern defence and, as the keeper advanced, lobbed her from 20 metres out for an excellent finish. Sam King then got the first of her brace after 64 minutes when again a through ball split the Tavern defence, Sam made ground and, as the keeper again had to come out of the area to challenge for the ball, Sam just got her shot away before both players collided and ended up in a heap. Unfortunately, Zoe Gibbons was unable to continue after that collison and was replaced in goal. Sam's second goal came from some really good interplay between the Fakenham midfield which opened up the defence for King to take the ball to the keepers right and clinically finish the move with another fine goal. Tavern almost opended their account when Fuller had a great effort but saw her shot come off the post and away. The last 15 minutes saw Fakenham press for a fifth goal but couldn't convert a number of half chances. Tavern tried to take advantage of the Fakenham midfield pressing higher and higher up the field and leaving lots of space in the Fakenham half but the defence always managed to clear or block the attack. This was an excellent start to the season, the ladies played some very creative football and showed a 100% committment to the team for the whole game. After the disappointments of the last couple of seasons, it was nice to see such excellent team spirit and perhaps the start of a most successful season. #COY(Lady)G's
