ADO ladies fight back to draw with Ajax

On Friday night ADO ladies hosted league leaders Ajax in the Cars Jeans stadium. The game turned out to be a real cracker.

The game started quite even regarding possession. It was ADO who almost took an early lead. Victoria Pelova hitting the post in the eighth minute. After ten minutes it was the visitors who began to create the better openings and dominate the midfield. Ajax then took the lead in the nineteenth minute. A long range shot was tipped onto the crossbar brilliantly by Barbara Lorsheyd, the rebound fell to Sisca Folkertsma who slammed the ball home, 0-1.

After the restart ADO pushed forward, chances were created, the post was hit again, good goalkeeping by Liza van der Most frustrating the home side. As the first half came to a close, Ajax again were attacking hard, only some great solid defending prevented the Amsterdammers going two goal up.

ADO looked confident at the start of the second half, yet it was Ajax who struck again on the hour. Confusion around the area saw Lauren Delleman put the ball into her own net, 0-2.

With fifteen minutes remaining the game changed. Nadine Noordam firstly finding space in the danger area before firing home to make it 1-2. Then just two minutes later ADO were level. Chasity Grant found space on the penalty spot, she kept extremely cool and picked her spot, beating the keeper with ease to draw the game level at 2-2.

The league leaders were hurt and turned up the pressure on ADO. In the final ten minutes the home defence were backs to the wall, fighting hard to claim the point. Great keeping by the ever alert Lorsheyd kept Ajax at bay. Thankfully for ADO so many Ajax players were pushing forward that they were blocking their own shots. In the final seconds they saw their final effort smash against the crossbar.

The final whistle blew and the decent sized crowd cheered the team in front of them. It was a good game and ADO fought well, after a run of three defeats, this result will hopefully be the turning point for them to build on.
