Away Day At Diamonds

Brilliant Brown Steals The Show

Today the girls were away to an unbeaten Diamonds side which consisted of multiple Coventry players, even though Corby were without 6 of their players the Corby girls took the game to Diamonds, many of the first half chances went to Corby through Beth Hughes and the Girl of the match Bethany brown but sadly none of the shots would hit the back of the net, continuously Brown found herself receiving the ball deep inside her own half and running past the Diamonds midfield with her trickery and putting the diamonds back line under a lot of pressure. The Diamonds like stood strong and at half time they went in level.

Second half was always going to be even harder as Corby were now attacking up hill, but still even though Corby were under a lot of pressure they weren't letting diamonds past, Jess Gibbons, Sasha Law, Tilly Goodwin and Emily Marshall were often called upon to but in the challenges and set Bethany Brown on her way to skip past several players and put in some wonderful through balls for Elise Chin and Beth Hughes, sadly none were to go in this half either and it all came down to one piece of brilliance from a Diamonds player who won a free kick right on the edge of the Corby area and found the top right corner of the goal to give Diamonds an unlikely and some what undeserved lead. Corby did not give up though, they continued to press and move the ball far up the pitch, but due to Diamonds cheeky time wasting it was all but over for Corby Town. Although Corby lost it was an impressive performance from a depleted squad who all pulled together for a valiant effort.
