Another great game between two evenly matched sides, again made it heartbreak for a Wyrley team that deserved more from the game. Jemma Clews’ pace and skill caused havoc all afternoon and she opened the scoring after after 5 minutes, latching onto a great through ball from Emily Quimby, smashing the ball low into the far corner past the onrushing keeper. As in the last match, Wyrley defended poorly from dead balll situations, and after conceding a corner, the ball fell loose and was poked home from 5 yards.
Wyrley continued in the ascendency and half chances fell to Rachel Hall, Hayley Turner, Beth Crook and Cath Davis, despite playing up the slope. RPS response was sporadic, with Amy Marshall, Lottie Howells, Emily Downes and the very impressive Leah Fanning keeping the ball away from Nia Jay. Laura Cumberledge replaced Rachel Hall and could have clinched the deciding goal with two glorious chances – beating the square backline and shaving the post and a header from a perfect cross from Jemma going over.
Nia Jay made two good saves as both sets of players tired.
Into extra time and still no deciding goal as both teams cancelled themselves out.

Wyrley’s 3 penalties went high or straight at the keeper and RPS scored the deciding goal into the top corner.

Girls – you deserved more today – again playing the better football but conceding from a dead ball, with a cruel way to lose. Praise to RPS girls and management as the game was played in the best spirit and good luck to their manager Paul in his hip replacement operation! Shame he can’t get our name right after 5 years though!!

Just means we have to win the next league game against RPS to put the league back in our own hands!
