Luck wasn't on Maidstone side!


Ladies 2s v cliftonville
The first league game back after the Xmas break saw Maidstone get off to a good start dominating play for the first 20 minutes pressing the ball really well and not allowing cliftonville to play the ball around and were unlucky not to take the lead with a short corner strike just eluding Rachel Davies on the right post and vic O’Reilly coming close on a couple of occasions. Unfortunately against the run of play cliftonville took the lead with a well taken short corner and Maidstone were extremely unfortunate to shortly after go two down when a nothing shot from the edge of the D took a wicked deflection into the top corner of the goal.
Maidstone come out fighting in the second and soon pulled a goal back when player of the match vic O’Reilly converted a short corner. Maidstone were determined to get something from this game and were totally dominant for the whole second half not allowing cliftonville any attempt at all on their goal but just couldn’t find that finishing touch and with virtually the last touch of the game luck just wasn’t on their side when a Claire Daniels strong strike went just inches wide.
