The Bradley Stoke Youth FC (BSYFC) Under-11 Girls managed to get their game moved to the Gloucestershire FA artificial pitch at Oakland Park (Almondsbury) on Sunday so they could play Whitchurch, a team they have beaten 14-0 and 5-1 already this season, and they successfully made it three wins out of three with a 4-1 victory.
After a long period of not playing football, the team looked good and ready for a game and, thanks to some solid play at the start of the match, they were able to get an opener not long into the first half, captain Daisy Ackerman putting the ball into the box for midfielder Lydia Tang to slot home.
They were to go on and score more goals towards the end of the game, but not before Whitchurch got an equaliser, the ball played into the box and a crowded penalty area left the Bradley Stoke keeper unable to see the ball and it was hit home by a Whitchurch player.
At half time, with the score poised at 1-1, the teams came off for a rest and it looked like the lack of football had affected their match fitness, but they continued, and continued well, breaking down the other end of the field to power more goals home. Daisy Ackerman, powering her shot towards the keeper, only for her to parry into her own net.
With more goals on the break late in the second half, Bradley Stoke were able to claim a three goal difference as the game ended 4-1.
