Well done to the first team girls who played their hearts out in tough weather conditions.
The Union team enjoyed a great start to the game, creating two goal-scoring opportunities in the first 30 seconds of the game. York countered, however, and ran three solid counterattacks in the first chukka.
It was high-tempo stuff from the start of the second chukka, as Union probed for openings on attack and displayed a lot of physicality on defence, creating five chances to score, but failing to capitalise on them. ๐™๐™๐™š ๐™ง๐™–๐™ž๐™ฃ ๐™ฅ๐™ง๐™ค๐™ซ๐™š๐™™ ๐™– ๐™™๐™ž๐™›๐™›๐™ž๐™˜๐™ช๐™ก๐™ฉ ๐™—๐™–๐™ง๐™ง๐™ž๐™š๐™ง ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™ค๐™ซ๐™š๐™ง๐™˜๐™ค๐™ข๐™š ๐™ฌ๐™๐™š๐™ฃ ๐™ž๐™ฉ ๐™˜๐™–๐™ข๐™š ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™จ๐™˜๐™ค๐™ง๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ. Half-time saw the score standing at 1-1 .
Going into the second half, the rain started to pour down in earnest, putting a strain on Unionโ€™s play. The team managed to create two counterattacks, four goal-scoring opportunities and one short corner, but lack of concentration gave York the opportunity to score in the last 30 seconds.
