U15s Match Report - Kingshurst SC 0 v Derby County LFC 3 - 27-10-18

John Ryde·Saturday, 27 October 2018

Four weeks after suffering a narrow defeat(3-2) against today’s hosts in their opening Warwickshire League fixture, Derby returned to Kingshurst and were hoping to prove that they were adjusting to the new league well. Prove it they did!

So, on a bitterly cold October morning, with the wind behind them and playing down the hill, Kingshurst, unbeaten so far this season, kicked off. The early pressure was all for the hosts and Derby struggled valiantly against the conditions and the skillful wing-play from the Reds.

In the last match Derby allowed Kingshurst to use their physical presence to gain an advantage, this game, however, EweRams were prepared to give as good as they got!

Derby grew into the game and although slightly against the run of play, in the 36th minute a superb through-ball down the middle from Asante allowed Iesha to race away and fire past the home keeper(0-1).

Both sides battled, neither willing to concede an inch for the rest of the half. HT:0-1

The second half kicked off and with the conditions and slope with them Derby began to take the game to their hosts.

Seven minutes in, Right back Angelina took a throw on Derby’s right, receiving the ball back, she then lofted a cross to the edge of the Reds’ box where Iesha was waiting to control then put the ball in the net(0-2).

Fifteen minutes later Angelina was to repeat herself, a lower diagonal ball finding it’s way through to Iesha, the later completing her hat-trick with a superb shot to the top right corner(0-3).

A battling performance all across the pitch and playing simple football well, caused the parents to nominate the whole team as their ‘Player of the match’! Well played girls!
