Fosse 3 v Ashfordby Away 1

A very stop start game right from the off.
Never the less another game with plenty of movement with two stunners from Sandeep followed by a stunner from Ashfordby to increase the pressure on us but that was soon sorted out when Carmy put the game to bed with our third.
With some great saves by Kate and good defending from the team when it was two one made the score line seem like the game way easy but it was anything but.
