The Arsenal womens team’s games are coming thick and fast, just like the mens, and after the thrilling draw against the Champions Chelsea at the weekend, they had to go back into action in the Continental Cup last night against our noisy neighbours Tottenham.
Having beaten Spurs 6-1 a month ago and 4-0 the month before, we were expecting another easy night against our rivals, but with Miedema and Foord having put us 2-1 up with just 20 minutes to go the game was far from over.
Somehow Zadorsky managed to poke in a goal mouth scramble in the dying minutes to send us to penalties, and it took a wild shot, high and wide, from Tottenham’s Alex Morgan with the final spotkick to win us the bonus point.
To be fair, we were only fighting for second place in Group B with Spurs, as Chelsea had already beaten both of us and were certain to finish top of the Group, but at least we managed to get some small bragging rights over our rivals.
So we go into another international break lying second in the Womens Super League, and looking forward to an easy home match against Birmingham on their return in 3 weeks time.
There is a long way to go, but we are still very real contenders for the title…
