A lovely sunny day for visiting Bridgnorth, shame we had to go play football, although it was a much better game this week for the spectators. Having played Bridgnorth twice already won 1 lost 1 this game could have gone either way.
Wyrley started on the front foot and were soon testing the Bridgnorth keeper. It was a concentrated attack on 27 mins which saw Sam lob the keeper after some nice build up play 0-1. The rest of the half was mainly a midfield head tennis match (again). Lauren made some tremendous saves during the game, which earned her player of the game. Jody, Kirsty, Cath and Charlie dealt with most attacks by playing out of trouble and rarely played safe by kicking the ball out. Sam, Tash, Vikki and Emily put some nice passes together and sent many balls through to Sophie and Kelly to give chase.
50 mins Sophie collects Sam’s pass and on her left, no her right, no her left, no right foot sent a cracking shot past the keeper, (worth waiting for) 0-2. 57 mins Bridgnorth sent in a sweet corner and had a free header, much to Laurens disgust 1-2 game on. It looked like Sophie had took time out to audition for swan lake, when she pirouetted gracefully as she kicked the ball but she didn’t nail the landing and ended up on her knees. Lauren made a fantastic save from a free kick to keep Wyrley ahead. 80 mins Kelly had the beating of the defenders and cut her cross back for Sam to pick her spot 1-3. Jemma, Leanne and Nia came on for Kelly, Vikki and Lauren. 83 mins Sophie put the game to bed with a dribble round the defenders and scooping the ball over the stranded keeper 1-4.
Well played ladies, that was a hard game in the heat.
