Wargrave Girls 1 – 2 Wealdstone Girls
This was an entertaining game on Sunday(25th Nov) between two evenly matched teams.Wealdstone made a good start and had already created a couple of half chances before Ria Bird ran through the Wargrave penalty area, but with just the goalkeeper to beat she hit her shot over the bar. It wasn’t all one way though, and we nearly put through our own net from a corner. Just before half time Sophie Clegg and Catherine Fahy combined well on the right, and Catherine passed to Ria for a tap in.
In the second half, Wargrave pushed hard for an equaliser. In the 50th minute, one of their players burst through the centre, and with just Sydney Goodwin in goal to beat skewed her shot wide. A lucky let off. Soon after Wargrave scored a deserved equaliser. 5 minutes later they should have taken the lead after a scramble in front of goal,but Sydney saved superbly pushing the ball away for a corner.
Wargrave again nearly scored from that corner, hitting the post. 20 minutes before the end, Sarah Key received he ball just inside the Wargrave half, and ran towards their goal. Just as it looked like she had ran it too far, she shot at goal and the ball went in at the far post. Right at the end, Wargrave burst down the right and a goalbound shot was caught well by Sydney.
