Not much to say except – we went, we played, we lost!
Reading 3A’s Allstars!!, had an interesting match resulting in a score that didn’t reflect the game at all.

Reading LAdies 3As played Gerrards Cross at Sonning Lane. The game started quite evenly with both teams having a couple of chances which both failed to convert. The 3As then upped the pressure on the Gerrards Cross goal, and were awarded a couple of short corners, and several good chances, some of which were well saved but unfortunately they were unable to convert them. Gerrards Cross came back at the 3As and again both teams created some good chances which were well saved by both goalies, leaving the score 0-0 at half time.
The 3As started the second half very strongly , and were quickly awarded a short corner which unfortunately was not converted. They continued the pressure on the Gerrards Cross goal and Sue scored to make the score 1-0. Gerrards Cross rallied slightly and both teams created some chances which were not converted. Abbie Dixon then doubled the 3As advantage by scoring to make the score 2-0. The 3As forced a good save from the Gerrards Cross goalie, before the 3As goalie was called into action to save a couple of Gerrards Cross attempts on goal. Gerrards Cross continued to increase the pressure on the Reading goal, and scored a goal to make the score 2-1 before being awarded a short corner which they failed to convert. The 3As responded well and Sue scored her second to make the score 3-1. The game ended with both teams having a flurry of chances which neither managed to convert to leave the score 3-1 at full time.

Reading 3As entertained Kidlington at Sonning Lane. The 3As started very brightly and were very quickly awarded a short corner and had a very good chance to score before Kidlington had even a chance at goal. The 3As increased the pressure and had several good chances before Sammy scored for Reading to make the score 1-0. Kidlington were awarded a couple of short corner which were well defended by the 3As before Reading continued their excellent play, with a string of good chances and a couple of short corners. In the midst of this spell of play, Sue created a great opportunity which was turned into the Kidlington net by one of their own players to make the score 2-0.
Unfortunately the 3As appeared to relax and lose their concentration slightly, and this gave Kidlington the opportunity to get back into the game. Despite the 3As still creating chances and being awarded several short corners, they were unable to convert them and Kidlington, who had very few attempts at goal, took their chances and scored to make the score 2-1. The 3As continued their pressure having several good chances and a short corner which they failed to convert, before Kidlington were awarded a short corner which they converted to make the score 2-2 at half time.
The second half was quite uneventful regarding chances and the majority of the play for both teams was carried out in the midfield, with very few circle penetrations from either team. The final score ended 2-2.
