It’s all to play for for league leaders Maidenhead Girls u14s after this weekend’s convincing 4-0 win over a strong Tilehurst team.
The girls are leading the table with only seven league matches to play, and the pressure is on to see if they can lift the trophy for the first time in their history.
They came into this clash off the back of last weekend’s convincing trophy win at the Berkshire Futsal tournament, and once again they showed plenty of silky footwork in this.
They were ahead three minutes after the start when the prolific Becky Tinnelly added another goal to her season’s tally.
Charlie Potter then poached a second goal from Sofia Lacey’s corner to make it 2-0 at half-time.
Tilehurst were restricted to only two attempts in the second half, both kept out by keeper Lily May, and Maids continued to threaten in attack with Hattie Parkinson adding a third before Tinnelly fired home the side’s fourth.
