Livanis on target

HENLEY LADIES 3rds recorded their first win in two months at Milton Keynes 3rds on Saturday.

HENLEY LADIES 3rds recorded their first win in two months at Milton Keynes 3rds on Saturday.

Henley started well, with Ellie Roseff playing a vital role in the middle of the park, distributing the ball well, breaking up play, and linking up with the forward line.

With the defence pressing high, this was a game for the midfield and attackers to dominate.

Henley continued to enjoy the majority of possession and some quick passing led to a wide pass being met by Claire Taylor who drilled the ball into the D. Tash Livanis sprinted forward to collect it and managed to slot the ball into the bottom right hand corner of the goal.

Henley continued to dominate the first half with countless short corners being awarded but were unable to convert any to extend the lead.

Sophie Ashton, playing in a new role at right back, made some vital challenges to break up play down the hosts’ left, supporting the attack and linking up well with Claire Taylor to take control of the right side of play.

In the second half, Milton Keynes opened up the play with two forwards remaining high waiting for the long ball which they had resorted to. The defence stayed strong and some good interceptions by Di Wise cancelled out any possible threats.

Rhea Simister played wide and fast on the left wing, hassling and pressing the defence and breaking up play on many occasions. The relentless pressing resulted in Henley gaining possession high up the pitch, but they were unable to add to the score.
