Kettering Ladies 4ths were able to put out a strong team for a friendly against Wootton 3rds. As the season is progressing so the team is increasingly uniting and beginning to understand one another's play.
From the start Kettering were keen to attack and much of the play for the duration of the match was in the opposition's half. The team was rewarded before half time when Ola Bednarczyk fired a strong strike from a wide angle which hit the back of the goal with a sweet clunk putting Kettering ahead at half time.
Following a half time secret energy injection (left over Christmas cake) Kettering were looking forward to increasing their lead when Wootton scored from a corner with a very strong strike . Kettering did not allow their heads to go down. The mid-field players of Lydia McCarrick, Lin Leach, Marie Donnelly, Katie Mitton and Pam Farr continued to work their socks off and put some excellent balls forward. The forwards were quickly onto them and Megan Newlyn was rewarded for her intelligent performance throughout the game by scoring her first goal for the team.
In the final quarter, the two young forwards Ola and Megan played really well together and Megan put a fine cross in to Ola who was able to add her second goal for the day.
