Ju­nior girls make step up to Ladies

Rochdale Observer - - FAITH NEWS SCHOOL NEWS -

stopped. The first half ended 2-0.

The third goal of the game came quickly in the sec­ond half. Mac­Don­ald re­ceived a pass from Moon af­ter she ex­pertly tack­led the Glossop for­ward, be­fore send­ing it up to Hod­croft – who de­spite hav­ing two in­juries dur­ing the game bat­tled on. Hod­croft pow­ered the ball into the D, Bur­rell con­nected with it and sent it home.

This is just what Rochdale needed to main­tain the mo­ti­va­tion.

With Glossop’s chances of a win slowly slip­ping away they at­tempted to pen­e­trate the D nu­mer­ous times but Rochdale were not will­ing to suc­cumb. Owen and Mon­gan en­sured they dom­i­nated the Rochdale D to pre­vent any of the op­po­si­tion com­ing in which meant keeper Part­ing­ton didn’t have to touch the ball once – quite an achieve­ment!

A valiant ef­fort from all with each player putting on a bril­liant per­for­mance and prov­ing that Rochdale mean busi­ness.

Fan­tas­tic ef­fort from Rochdale’s new play­ers and ju­niors.

Stand in Cap­tain Pick­er­ing said: “It was great to get our first win of the sea­son, es­pe­cially with such a dom­i­nat­ing dis­play. A spe­cial men­tion needs to go to the ju­nior girls who have made the step up to the se­nior team.”
