Viva La Beaver
We welcomed The Hatters Luton Town to the Bev on Sunday , Ladies have been with out fixtures for 5 weeks so they were pumped and fired for this game , they were welcoming back Becky Payne from a 17 week injury and Louise Clarke .The game started off fast and furious for ten mins until the beavers found there fit and settled down and good work from Kerry Celino and Hayley Lyon in the middle of park started to feed the wings of Becky Tansey and Bianca Underhill with there pace were running at the Luton Defence.
Luton won a corner in the first 10 whipped a cross for the girl to head towards the left hand far corner only to see Paige to make a sensational save to keep them from scoring .
We gained a throw on the left side thrown in the danger zone where Alanna Rudd got pushed to the floor and the referee blew with no hesitation for a clear penalty. Resident penalty taker Katie Foster stepped up as cool as you like taken like a true professional left the keeper in the same position and smashed it home 1-0 Beavers.
Luton did break free for a one on one with Paige only to find the young keeper use her strength and make a super tackle
The first half was dominated by Hampton , the pace of Bianca was causing there left back to eat her mud most of the game as she ran at her and put something fantastic crosses in .
Luton had a few breaks in the last ten of the first half but nothing that the back four of Lou , Sarah , Becky and Dan could not clear up and make some strong decisive tackles .
Second Half Leah made two changes bringing on Louise Clarke and Amy Trowles, Louise Clarke collected a throw from Amy to slot a ball to Becky Tansey who smashed it a cross to find Katie Foster in the box to do what she does best and smash it home 2-0 beavers. A fantastic start to the second half , Hampton were dominate for a lot of the game some cracking tackles from Hayley , Dan and Lou Harris to keep the two young quick luton players at bay. Luton did get passed the defence only to find Hampton Sarah Byrne not willing to give up and made a smashing slide tackle to keep there out . A Ball from Kerry into Lou who found Katie Foster to do a clever little flick to release speedy Bianca who smashed past lutons defence to pick up the third goal , a performance well deserved finish
3-0 beavers , 10 mins from time the ground was getting heavy and tiring two more changes of Georgia and Twyla to put some fresh legs in to the mix , Luton broke free to get a consolation goal
Ended 3-1 to the beavers
