100% Record Continues
The girls U14 team took on Burnt Ash this week after the dissapointment of a cancelled match last week.
Maidstone started strongly and pushed forward right from the whistle.
The girls took advantage of their early possession and found themselves 3-0 up within 15 minutes, courtesy of an Emily Beacon hat-trick. Afer this early shock, Burnt Ash picked themselves up and strung a number of good passes together. An excellent through-ball opened up the maidstone defence and goalkeeper Maddie Grove was unlucky to save the Ash forward's strong shot.
Further Maidstone pressure and goals from Ellie James and Gracey-Mei Wilshire made the half time score an impressive 5-1.
In the second half, play continued to be exciting end to end stuff. Rebecca Grove was instrumental in keeping Burnt Ash at bay with some impressive tackles and the midfield also worked hard to put defensive pressure on some strong players.
Further second half goals from Abbie Leyton, Lizzie Thomas and a second from Ellie James meant the game finished 8-1 to Maidstone.
A fantastic result from the U14s who are now looking forward to keeping up their 100% record in the remaining league games after Christmas.
