This was our first league match against Tilehurst.
This match is always by far the most physical game of the season. The need of a strong official is always needed but unfortunately we did not get one on this occasion. The first 20 minutes was good strong football but then after a few over the top challenges that went unnoticed the game was lost by the official who did not even notice our midfielder being dragged down by the neck? To be fair the opposition just did what they were allowed to do and we stood up to it but seemed to be brandished all the cards. [One way vision]
We had a player sent off for 2 yellows 30 minutes before the final whistle and another in the Sin bin for a ball hitting her arm and questioning as to why he gave a penalty. A Tilehurst player then kicked one of our players on the ground in the back and this one could not go unnoticed so she got sent off with 10 to go.
Even with the odds firmly against us we managed to still Draw 2-2 points dropped but in the circumstances a point gained.
