STAFFORDSHIRE LADIES CHALLENGE SHIELD – QUARTER FINAL – SUNDAY 18TH January 2009
Rugeley Ladies 3 Wyrley Juniors Ladies Reserves 1
Wyrley went into this game on a high due to being unbeaten this season in the league and had high hopes of getting through to the next round, however they came up against a determined and strong Rugeley side who realy put the effort in. With a howling wind against them in the 1st half Wyrley found it hard to get any shots on the Rugeley goal with Kelly Povey having little to do in goal. Rugeley went ahead after 20 minutes from a corner with Ruth Graham cleanly beating everyone in the box to head past Lauren Cresswell in the Wyrley goal, Dani Wright latched on to a through pass to slice in the second goal and Stacey Roberts clinched the third a minute before half time.
Wyrley came strong in the second half when Lauri Alexander and Vikki Shaw came on in attack but still struggled to get past the strong Rugeley defence. Kelly Isaac gave Wyrley some hope when she scored with 10 minutes left but it was not to be Wyrley’s day. Well done to Rugeley Ladies a good game of football.
