With a crisp autumnal bite in the evening air, the girls of 2021/22 kicked off their campaign by showcasing their attacking prowess and laying down a marker for the rest of the season.
After travelling to Shropshire and the excellent surroundings of Lilleshall, the girls, led by new coach Esme, raced into a two-goal lead before the end of the first period. However, to their credit, North Shropshire refused to give in and soon clawed their way back into the game. As the game swung one way and then the next, the scoreline was balanced at three goals apiece following the completion of the second period.
With twenty minutes remaining, The Ton threw everything they had left in the tank as North Shropshire. This was no mean feat considering they had no subs, while North Shropshire had plenty! Despite battling fatigue during the closing stages of the game, the girls had enough left in them to earn a morale boosting draw in what was a ten-goal thriller.
Well done girls!
Up The Ton!
