A 1-1 Draw with Richard Alibon in the Super Six stage and a hatful of chances missed from Northbury could prove costly in weeks to come!
Northbury Girls were left bemused at how they had come away with only a point in their recent Super Six fixture with Richard Alibon. Northbury dominated large spells of the game and hit the post twice along with a great 1v1 save from the Richard Alibon goalkeeper keeping the scores level.
After a cagey first 10 minutes the first half finished 0-0 with both teams trying to work each other out.
Lily-Mae as she has done many times this season, opened the scoring in the second half with a long range effort that looped over the keeper who parried it into her own net. Richard Alibon then hit back with a poor defensive mix up and poor clearance went straight to the Alibon forward who poked it into the bottom corner to make it 1-1.
Northbury then hit the post twice through Lily-Mae and Olivia, then some good work down the right from Olivia lead to a cross to Lily-Mae who was through on goal. The Alibon keeper came diving out at her feet to save a secure an important point for her team.
Well done to both teams in a competitive game that was played in the right spirits!!
