anyone know why is Zinsberger on the bench?


Rotation, as far as I can see. She got as far as the touchline when we scored, and looked happy enough! In the first half, we only finished a goal down, which should have been at least 3. But we got more into the game in the second half, without ever really dominating it, and took our chances to win 2-1. Though one switch of play, opened up the inside-left position for Maanum, and that resulted in a fierce shot which their goalie tipped over. That would have been a Goal of the Month contender. McCabe’s goal might be anyway!
