The match

After facing Taastrup FC’s U19 team in the pre-season, we had expectations of good technique and high pace from their ladies. In fall 2013 Taastrup FC even had a team in the highest women league (3F), but chose to pull the team, meaning that a lot of talent left the club for other 3F clubs and Taastrup FC now plays in Serie 2 in SBU.

The match was played on a very large grass pitch and with rain starting to fall right before kick-off it took a few minutes for CBS to get acclimated to the conditions.

7 minutes into the match Caroline took on the opposing left back 1v1, cut into the pitch and shot on goal. The shot was deflected into the centre of the box by a Taastrup centre-back where Mia could finish with no chance for the goalkeeper. 1-0 for CBS.

Only 3 minutes later CBS made it 2-0 after a string of corners. Caroline served the ball perfectly to the front post on the corner, where Malle once again proved her strength in the air by heading it past a chanceless goalkeeper. With only 10 minutes played CBS was completely in control and the rest of the first half went by with no significant danger of Taastrup cutting the lead in half.

From the start of the 2nd half Taastrup played the ball back into their defensively line after the kick-off. After a few passes back and forth they put back a poor pass for the goalie which was expertly intercepted by Malle who quickly finished and made it 3-0 with only 1 minute played of the 2nd half.

After the 3-0 goal Taastrup started winning more duels and slowly fought their way back into the match, though only very few chances were created. A couple of substitutions meant they were more dangerous and with about 25 minutes left in the game they found the net. A duel for a loose ball was lost by the CBS right back after which the Taastrup winger made a cross curling towards the back post. The cross was picked up by an unmarked striker inside the area, making it 3-1 with a simple finish.

Taastrup FC tried to push for another goal but as the game dragged on both teams were tired and with a large chance for Caroline being the only exception the last 20 minutes were largely uneventful.

Taastrup was playing with a very high defensive line throughout the game, which made it difficult for CBS to find space for the usual passing patterns. It did however create a large amount of chances on through balls, with Pernille, Caroline and Laura missing 1v1’s with the keeper. The missed chances did however not take away from another comfortable win.
