Wyrley turned out for this league game with a great run of form behind them. Unfortunately Bridgnorth came with a different team that had lost 9-1 to Wyrley, a few weeks ago. Wyrley started brightly but Bridgnorth’s keeper seemed to have psychic ability in reading Wyrley’s crosses and shots. Sophie, Jemma, Tash and Hayley were finding life difficult in any attempt on goal. Bridgnorth’s defence and midfield were camped well in their own half and blocked any ball that was fired into their box. It was totally against the run of play on 16 mins when Bridgnorth broke with a long ball from the keeper that wasn’t dealt with and smashed home past a helpless Lauren 0-1. Lauren was called into action a few minutes later and made a terrific save denying Bridgnorth a second. Bridgnorth played a high line for the rest of the half, leaving Wyrley trying to beat the off side flag of the Bridgnorth Linesman, not an easy task, in fact it was impossible. 29 mins Bridgnorth scored their 2nd with another well taken strike 0-2.
The 2nd half was a re-run of the 1st, with Emily, Shelly, Tash and Hayley unable to find a way to feed the ball through to Sophie and Jemma. Jody, Kelly, Cath and Ash were run ragged by the imposing strikers. Leanne came on for Shelly and Kirsty replaced Kelly. 60 mins Bridgnorth got their 3rd with rocket of a shot that was under the diving Lauren before she knew it 0-3. Sophie was clear through on goal, managed to round the keeper and with the open net ahead was brought down by the defender from behind. A penalty was awarded and a yellow card shown, as apparently it wasn’t a goal scoring opportunity!!!!. The psychic keeper dived the right way and pushed it behind for a corner. Legs, bodies and even the posts kept Wyrley’s shots out today, a real bad day at the office.
