The newly formed Under 12í s Girls Cubs team played their first competitive league game together at Rockwell Green School on Saturday morning and can hold their heads up high as they played well together as a team
Wells themselves were a good team with a very skilful and strong player upfront that gave them the edge
However after some early pressure the Cubs took the lead with a well taken goal by striker Kayla Lech-Thomas who capitalised on the visitorís defensive indecision to hit an accurate shot from 10 yards into the net.
Wells then put the Cubs defence under pressure with Hannah McCabe & Grace Buttle working well together along with keeper Rhian Mitchell who made three excellent saves to keep the visitors out
The defence was finally breached with a neat turn and powerful strike from the Wells striker that deservedly brought them level at half time
Ellie Buffham and Tori Lowman worked hard in the Cubs midfield in the second half, winning some superb tackles for the team, Wells took the lead on 35 minutes following a succession of tackles and closing down the ball quickly, however to the Cubs credit they did their best to equalise with Megan Lang hitting a well struck long range shot and Grace Buttles shot both thwarted by the visitors keeper in the closing stages
Kayzia Letton & Emma Rowland played their part in a well contested game that had lots of positives for the girls as individuals and in particular as a team
Next week The Cubs travel to Wembdon Girls
