The honours were shared as the Charlton Girls teams took on Watford on Saturday morning.
U17's - Charlton 1 Watford 1
U15's - Charlton 2 Watford 1 (Beth Rodger & Evie Rose)
U13's - Charlton 3 Watford 4 (Chloe Stewart-Wilkin 3)
U11's - Charlton 2 Watford 2 (Aaliyah Boyea & Kayleigh Knight)
Charlton U15's 2 Watford U15's 1
In the first third Charlton had chances with Beth Rodger hitting the bar. However Watford took the lead from a long ball over our defence which they converted.
Charlton started to play very well in the second third and equalized through a great goal from Beth Rodgers who went through two players with quick feet and put the ball into the back of the net from just inside the area.
In the final third Charlton pushed to get the winner and what a winner it was. Two minutes from time Khadijah Ebanks swung in a cross with her left foot, which Evie Rose met it on the half volley on the edge of the box, the ball flying into the back of the net. It was a contender of goal of the season second game in. It was a great win for the girls and a much-improved performance from last week.
Player of the Match Evie.
