Women’s Football 2s Dominate in the Cup

The Women’s Football 2s’ excellent season continued this Wednesday as the girls beat Coventry 2-0 in the cup competition.

Despite the windy conditions, the girls played the ball nicely and several passing moves were causing Coventry all sorts of trouble. The deadlock was broken mid way into the first half when a long ball found a striker who slotted it past the goalkeeper. The girls continued to press and were solid at the back for the remainder of the half.

In the second half the wind picked up, but the back four dealt with everything. The second goal came from a wonder strike from Minnie Cruttwell. A quick one-two sent Minnie down the right side and her shot looped over the goalkeeper from 30 yards!

The girls thoroughly deserved this win in difficult conditions and under plenty of pressure to maintain their unbeaten record. The cup run continues!
