Kettering ladies 4ths travelled to Moulton for their league match against Saints 3rds, feeling optimistic following a good win in their last friendly. The team knew the opposition were going to be strong as they are at the top of the table, not having conceded a goal so far this season. And Kettering were indeed sadly over shadowed by the Saints strength, hitting and speed on the ball.
Kettering started well with composure on the ball and excellent passing and kept Saints out for the first quarter. The defence did well to soak up the pressure which was constant throughout the first half but Saints strong hitting eventually yielded goals. We were, however, pleased to go into the half time break losing by three goals.
Saints 3rds really got into their stride in the second half and the score line continued to grow. Kettering were able to put some runs together through their defence but the two forward players were soon surrounded by Saints defenders and any goal scoring opportunities thwarted.
By the end of the game Saints had a tally of 10. Kettering went home very disappointed with the score but will put it behind them and focus on their next game.
