Ladies 3rd XI v Gillingham Anchorians
Folkestone 3’s vs Gillingham
On a blustery day and a slight colour clash with the opposition folkestone had to put calling into action and put the pressure on from the start.
Again ops were unable to take early chances but 20 minutes in the continued pressure took hold as Gillingham tried to play around the back but played the ball straight into Michelle Phillips path who accepted and drove into the D and fired past the keeper
Folkestone kicked on and fast passing up the right with Vicky Bates and Chloe Pinn teaming up well and a ball hit into the D by player of the match Katie Janman was swept in by Phillips for Folkestone’s 2nd followed by another quick attack Vicky bought a high ball down and volleyed towards goal which put the keeper off balance and Cydney Smith on the post tapped in for 3-0 half time
Folkestone started spreading the passing and Lauren geddes in the midfield found Janman in the D who fired in for ops 4th.
Folkestone continued and another scramble in the D and Phillips in the right place tapped in for her 3rd and ops 5th. Justine Stephens was then played in one on one with the keeper and a deflected shot the ball rolled over and took Folkestone to 6-0 but the last 15 minutes Folkestone lost their shape and encouraged Gillingham forward but strong defending kept them out for a deserved 6-0 win.
