WYRLEY PANTHERS 0 v 1 WYRLEY PUMAS
This was a very close contest as the scoreline would suggest, There were several attacks by both teams in the first half, but excellent defending by both teams meant shots on goal were in short supply, Nadine Costello, Jordan Parker and Abby Judson holding firm for Pumas and Shannon Sault, Katie Lawton and Amy Cotterell doing exactly the same for the Panthers. The ball did fall to Danni Biggs but her goal bound shot was saved comfortably by Ellie Evans. The second half saw Panthers play much of the first period of the second half in the Pumas half of the pitch, Pumas defended well again, man of the match Costello making some timely challenges and Lauren Manton made two smart saves from Alicia Baker, Pumas however did present a threat on the break and Abi Hall, Jaffa and Danni Biggs in Pumas midfield worked hard to provide a killer pass, Pumas chance came when Ilora Anderson and Lucy Wells combined well, the ball running on for Anderson to challenge the keeper and slot the ricochet into the roof of the net. Panthers to their credit pushed hard for an equaliser but couldn’t breach the improved Pumas defence.
