Heroic Defence ...
Debut goal from young Temple
With goal keepers in short supply this weekend, the 4's survived the first quarter of the match without a GK, bravely defending 3 Marlow short corners in the process. I'm sure the newly acquired face masks adorning Karen and Heidi had something to do with it - Marlow can only take comfort from the fact that transparent, rather than coloured 'Darth Vader', masks won the vote!
During this time the rather speedy legs of colt Charlotte, playing her first Ladies Match, mesmerised Marlow's defence and she scored a lovely goal. Marlow soon got one back though, which ensured the combined age and wisdom of Liz and Sandy combined to score 2 more goals. A nervy final flurry from Marlow saw them claw one back, but we were not to be denied, leaving the pitch with a well earned 3-2 win.
If this report bears little relation to the game that unfolded on the pitch, it probably has something to do with the fact that the author was not there - the final result and the identity of the goal scorers, however, is fact!
