Bristol Women’s Casual League, 7-a-side, 10th October 2015
What a result for the Dragons Rock crew in only their second league start!
A performance of great skill, discipline and defensive resilience appeared to be the recipe for a deserved draw, the clean sheet being the icing on the cake: then came the cherry, KP’s late winner from an assist by Harriet from a corner igniting ecstatic scenes between the scorer, her team-mates, the manager, and the all-singing horde of supporters.
It was just reward for a squad whose attitude was impossible to fault. Megan R’s goalkeeping heroics earned her the player’s vote for Dragon of the Day, but in truth the award could justifiably have been split between the ten players. The effort, commitment and technical improvement between the last game and this were outstanding, and with three points in the bag, let’s hope the team can grow in confidence and continue to progress.
Well done Ryan for making the tricky decisions on the sidelines, the supporters who travelled, cheered and sang throughout, but above all to the proud winners, the Dragons Rock’s.
