Bury Rangers 0
St Albans Rangers 2
We started the game on the front foot and for the first 20 minutes we were controlling possession. We have been working on pressing the opposition, closing down and making fast breaks. All was going well and the majority of the play was in St Alban's half but a defensive mix up let St Albans in for the first goal.
We continued the rest of the game in the same way and in the second half we looked like we would get the equaliser. A break away led to a shot from one of St Alban's players that appeared to go through the side netting. However, the referee decided it was a goal and we found ourselves with a mountain to climb.
Credit to all the players. They have grown in confidence over the last three months and have been playing really well. Beth Toye was excellent and created lots of chances on the right of midfield. Izzy Pennington played her second game and was always involved in midfield.
