Haslingden 4-1 Lytham St Annes YMCA Girls U-16s

YMCA put in a very commendable team display against a strong Haslingden side in sunny East Lancashire last Sunday.  They started the game brightly and were more than a match for their opponents playing some fine attractive football at times.  It was the home side took the lead though but YMCA responded well and after good work from Ellie McNally the ball broke loose to the outstanding Honey Griffith who hit a fine first time shot from outside the area which saw the ball loop over the goalkeeper to make it 1-1.  However Haslingden were always dangerous on the break and they caught YMCA out to regain the lead and remained 2-1 ahead at half time.  YMCA continued with their excellent efforts in the second half but Haslingden added two further goals to complete a 4-1 victory.  Despite the scoreline though, YMCA can feel proud with their performance with Lara Pilling and Phoebe Davies both impressive throughout.
