This promised to be a tight competitive game especially for any neutral supporters who braved the chill evening air to watch this game. First strike of the game came in the 1st minute when Reedswood were quickly on the attack, it was an outstanding one handed punch from Lauren to keep it out. Reedswood were competing hard for every ball and Wyrley spent long spells defending. The defence of Jody, Cath, Kelly H and Sam dealt with most attacks but anything that got through was smothered or collected early by Lauren. Tash, Charlie, Emily and Vikki battled valiantly in midfield and had several shots between them. Kelly I and Sophie chased down long balls and held play up well. It was surprising that the score line was 0-0 at half time.
Second half Wyrley started the brighter and their youth and speed started to show. Charlie made way for Leanne, 55 mins a nice passing game played by Wyrley resulted in Leanne beating the defender and deftly chipping the keeper 0-1. This was the spur Wyrley needed to up their game. 67 mins a sweet corner from Emily was met by Kelly I, who rose like a salmon swimming upstream, to meet it and nod home 0-2, what a brilliant header. Vikki made way for Chelsea and Kelly I was replaced by Rachel. 75 mins Rachel hit a pile driver of a shot from the edge of the D, past the immobilised keeper 0-3. 85 mins Lauren collected from the edge of her box bowled it out to Sam who picked out Emily, and laid it off to Leanne. Leanne beat the onrushing keeper and her shot dribbled over the line followed by 2 defenders 0-4.
What a fantastic result girls. It was great teamwork for all the goals. Let’s keep up the momentum for the last few games.
