Leeds 22 – 0 Stoke
We played 10v9 for quarters instead of halves and Emma Barrow was the only ref.
We offered to give them some players but they wanted to stay separate.
Leeds played well settling the ball in attack and turning it over in midfield. Stoke had a few runs up to their attacking end but only had a couple of saved shots on goal-they struggled to stop some of the stronger Leeds players like Alex and Julia. Playing quarters gave Stoke a bit of a rest and helped me rotate the 7 Leeds subs. It was a great game for our new and less experienced players to get stuck in and there were some great goals from those players. Hopefully Stoke can get their team together for the rest of their games.
Leeds MVP: Laura Winterbottom and Ellouise Caswell
