Eagles Back To Winning Ways
Newhall's eagles returned to action after a week off and our last disappointing performance against St Georges.
The eagles needed to find the form we had before the Xmas break and weather interruptions, against the seven players of Duffield they certainly did!
On 3 minutes captain for the day Mikeala Colebrook played in a great pass for Natalie Eley to run onto and put the ball through the keepers legs.
Natalie was playing on the left today instead of her usual up front role and soon set up Emily Bridge who was unlucky not to score and Emily then fired over after more good play from Natalie.
Ella Walker set up Natalie who shot wide but on 22 minutes Natalie finished well after a fine pass from Mikeala.
On 25 minutes Emily found the net after a good turn on the edge of the box and a great finish past the Duffield keeper.
Emily could have added to her goal but fired over from six yards, Chloe Johnston also shot over and Jodie Oughton forced the keeper into a fine save pushing her shot onto the post.
Just before half time Charlotte Catlin pushed forward and the Duffield keeper made a fine save.
The eagles started the second half superbly and 40 seconds in Ella ran onto a fine Mikeala pass and finished past the keeper.
Whitney Garner tested the keeper with a great shot and Ella hit the crossbar after running on to a great Chloe Woodward kick.
Jodie Oughton shot at the keeper from close range and Mikeala tried her luck from range but her shot was just over.
Ella played in Melita Astle who finished superbly on 59 minutes and then on 61 minutes Natalie benefited after Melita forced the keeper into a great double save and the ball fell to Natalie to find the empty net.
Jodie shot wide with a fine effort and Emily saw a powerful drive just over.
Ella forced the Duffield keeper into another great double save and Jodie shot just over when she looked destined to score.
On 75 minutes Keeley Deery pushed forward and her great shot saw the keeper make a great save but the ball fell to Ella to complete the scoring.
Squad - Chloe Woodward, Whitney Garner, Keeley Deery, Charlotte Catlin, Melita Astle, Mikeala Colebrook, Natalie Eley, Emily Bridge, Ella Walker, Chloe Johnston, Jodie Oughton.
POM - Natalie Eley - Superb play on the left setting up chances for the team and getting a hat trick herself.
A good performance after our defeat against St Georges.This was superb from the eagles although against seven players Duffield always play well and never give in or make life easy for us. Team performance on the day excellent and we created some great chances playing some superb football, well played ladies!
Thanks for the superb and vocal support from our traveling fans!
