Defending against Khalsa
By Isobel Lyall
Sad but fair.. Saturday brought the first loss in the league for Ladies 2s against Khalsa last Saturday. Coming off the back of 3 excellent wins and sitting top of the table, Tornados knew that this game day could well be a different prospect knowing what the opposition were capable of. Despite some real back to the wall defending thorough the first quarter, ‘Nados counter attacked through some excellent running from Shireen, who found Johanna on the penalty spot to calmly slot the ball away. 1-0. More excellent defending kept the score at 1-0 up to halftime. Khalsa continued to pressurise in the second half with powerful through balls up to their centre forward. Quite a few balls were worn in battle, but despite this excellent commitment, Khalsa made the most of their pressure and were able to convert 3 times in the 2nd half. Special shout out to the very vocal club support in the stands.
