Complete downpour had this friendly fixture in doubt, but the travelling squad & supporters were not put off by a little water! Not the easiest place to find though!
Early kick off 11am with the Lionesses looking sharp in the warm up, the Lionesses looked hungry right from the off. Within 2 mins Lizzie had a shot which came off the back of a Sherrardswood defender and passed the stand in keeper. Very unlucky for the home team. 0-1
Passing the ball well , with one twos all over the pitch, it took another 20 mins for Amy to let fly with her left to nestle one in the top corner. 0-2! On 39 mins Georgie was in the right place to get a rare last foot shot passed the surprised last man. 0-3 On comes Molly fresh from missing the previous game, and only took 3 mins to have an impact on 42 mins she hit a unstoppable shot from distance. O-4 half time!
Home team comes out all guns blazing and got there reward on 60 mins to pull one back 1-4, game on! But no stopping the Lionesses as Casey & Molly finished any hopes of a comeback on 75 + 78 mins to end on a high and a 2-6 away win. Thanks to Sherrardswood who got a late goal on 90th minute for a really entertaining game.
