Newcastle Ladies 3 Wyrley Ladies Reserves 0
Wyrley lost their 100% league record against a strong Newcastle side who took advantage of their small pitch, which had a good slope and also of the second half blizzard like conditions.
After losing the toss Wyrley had a slight advantage kicking downhill, and putting the Newcastle defence under a lot of pressure for the first 20 minutes, with even Lauren Cresswell in goal seeing nothing of the ball. Numerous shots on goal from Tash Lilly, Leanne Mitchell and Kelly Isaac’s where saved by the Newcastle goalkeeper. The opposition scored their 1st goal after a clearance rebounded back into the box off a Wyrley player only to see the ball cleverley chipped into the net by the oppositions left winger. Wyrley then put on the pressure again with neat passing and Mary Chandler almost scored the equaliser just before half time only to see her shot glance past the far post.
The second half started with a barrage of attacks from the Newcastle forwards, which saw the Wyrley defence struggle to clear the ball when the wind realy picked up and then the snow came! All credit to the girls they never gave up and could have had a few goals in the second half. The better quality passing came from Wyrley but on the day the better team won. The pitch and the weather favoured the home team. Well done to both teams on this bitter cold day.
