Poor start costs Sils

Ladies 2s welcomed Tara Masson, Mira Higgins and Abi Landa to the starting line up this week.
A myriad of reasons saw the 2s 4-0 down within the first quarter of the game, not the start we had hoped for! A new formation and an opposition who were quick out of the starting blocks caught Sils off guard.
The Captain’s quick thinking salvaged the game and a re-worked formation kept the opposition’s lead to 4-0 to half time.
The first half wasn’t without its chances for the 2s, with a short corner and some good open play; demonstrating that whilst losing by a significant margin the 2s weren’t defeated.
The second half again saw an early goal for the opposition, taking their lead to 5-0. Notwithstanding the scoreline Sils continued to battle and it’s a testament to the 2s character and commitment to each other that until the final whistle every ball was chased down and everyone continue to work hard.
