|Northern Storm Football Club Match Report|
|Northern Storm Team||Womens Reserves Cyclones|
|Date & Venue||30/4 Korora|
|Coach / Manager||Mike Lloyd|
|Player of the Match (optional)||Avalon Donovan|
We were again desperately short of players for various reasons, going into a game against a solid Woopi side. Only 18 players for 2 teams made things very difficult with several Premier League players having to fill in and back up for another game. Several of our key defenders were out and a number of players were forced to play out of position.
We were under pressure from the start, struggling to contain a couple of Woopi's strong players out wide. Although we fought hard we could not control enough possession and some good long range shooting from Woopi saw us down 2-0 at half time
The 2nd half was an improvement and while we created plenty of chances we could not finish them off, going down 4-1.
Although we lost this one, there is plenty there to say we will be very competitive once we get all players back on deck.
Strong efforts from Avalon & Alison in the backs, and Finchy also added a great deal in attack out wide.
