So here it was the day we’d all be waiting for the Emeralds’ first match. Down to 7 before the game, meaning the girls would get all the game, to express their talents. Starting strong the girls scored first with Sophie slotting a good goal in the corner. Then inexperience meant we were 3-1 down by half time. The girls kept going though in the second half and scored first again making it 3-2, an end to end game with the others scoring 2 more to make it 5-2, Sofia’s goal at the end was that only of a consolation, but I like to think that the girls tried their best and did well in testing circumstances. Onwards and upwards Emeralds.
