In the Central Warwickshire Girls Football League Open Cup, Wyrley continued their impressive run of form with a comfortable passage into the second round with a victory against very plucky opponents. Without Jemma Clews, Shannon Markland and Laura Cumberledge, Wyrley were down to 13 players.
Goal scorers were Sophie Shorrock 6, Hayley Turner 2, Catherine Davis 2, Rachel Hall 2, Laura Lindsay 2, Dominique McKee 2, Leah Fanning 1 and Emily Quimby 1.
Highlights were: –
Nia Jay – showed great concentration in dealing with the occasional ball into the box.
Leah Fanning – moved forward to support the front players on numerous occasions and scored by slipping the ball past 2 defenders and curling the ball into the top right hand corner
Amy Marshall – was very comfortable on the ball and played the simple pass into the midfield every time
Cath Davis – scored a tremendous far post diving header but has asked me not to mention her missed penalty that would have given her a hat trick, so I won’t!
Saff Hicken – again showed some great long passes skills that created one goal.
Emily Downes – supported Hayley with many positive forward runs
Hayley Turner – took her goals well and was a constant threat
Laura Lindsay – scored from outside the box with a fine drive
Beth Crook – was again composed with her passing
Emily Quimby – a very asssured passing performance and took her goal well
Dominique McKee – used on both wings and took her second goal well by chipping the keeper
Rachel Hall – took her 2 chances well
Sophie Shorrock – best goal of the day by taking on the whole Solihull team from her own half before slotting home
Wyrley were 16 0 up at half time but decided to agree to a game limited to 70 minutes and eased off in the second half.
Another super performance – well done girls!!
