Tornados shoot out the gates to win their first game!

Ladies 2nd XI
Amazing win 2-0 against Rising Stars during a scenic Sunday Sunset at Sengkang Stadium. Despite only beginning to get to know one another, the well-positioned team kept solid possession in the mild field, which served as the foundation Tornados needed to convert two short corners into goals. A few minutes into first quarter Tornados earned an offensive penalty corner: Annastasia injected that ball for Jolijn to trap, then a shot from Mia was finally deflected by Annastasia into the top right corner of the goal. Later on during the third quarter, another penalty corner gave Mia the opportunity to whack a shot straight into the goal, bottom right. No words needed—just check the final score—to see the stellar job done by the defence and goalkeeper, Claire Huntington, who kept the opponents shut out to concede 0 goals. Although there was an unlucky green card for Karli during the last quarter, it was still a strong start and happy ending. From the sidelines, it was almost impossible to tell this was the Ladies 2s first match of the season!
