Draycott Ladies made a massive improvement from their last game, but were still beaten 4-2 by a more experienced Bridport side.

Draycott Ladies played their second ever game and were unlucky to have lost the game, showing a massive improvement from their last game.

In a tough game the hosts were beaten by a close score of 4-2 by their more experienced opponents.

The game started with Draycott kicking into the wind and early on a thunderous shot from Mollie Smith was tipped onto the bar by the Bridport keeper and to rub salt in the wounds the visitors broke away superbly and a brilliant finish gave debutant keeper Keeley Smith no chance. Soon afterwards it was 2-0 as another shot from distance gave Smith no chance.

The Smith sisters were a constant threat going forward with Mollie talking her colleagues through the game as befitting a captain and younger sister, Eviee a constant threat in front of goal.

Right on the stroke of half-time, the hosts conceded another to give the scoreline an unfair look, but a half that was credit to the newly formed Draycott side

The second half saw Draycott improve and press forward throughout, but early on they were caught on the break and it was 4-0.

After that it was the Draycott team that pressed forward with Eviee Smith scoring twice. Mollie Smith drove the team forward until the end, but all credit to Bridport, they resisted strongly and defended superbly.

Eventually time ran out, but Draycott Ladies could look back with huge pride and enjoy the drink and food kindly provided by The Strawberry Special pub. Draycott LFC would also like to thank team sponsors Cheddar Self Storage.
