Weston Ladies emerged with a draw in a 12-goal extravaganza against St Agnes.

The Weston Women’s team made the long journey to take on St Agnes in a league fixture.

With a diabolical start from the kick-off, they conceded three goals within 10 minutes of the whistle, created by an own goal and silly mistakes. Undeterred, the team got back to their fighting ways to battle back with two great goals scored by Ellie Roberts.

But St Agnes fought back just as hard and the teams left the game at half time with an uncomfortable scoreline of 5-2 to the hosts.

The management made the risky decision to change to a formation the team hadn’t yet played. This was in the hope that it would allow Weston to continue with their attacking fightback in the second half.

The women took well to the change in tactics and within 28 minutes of the second half kicking off, had levelled themselves once again, with the score now pegged back at 5-5 against a worried looking St Agnes.

Goals came from a blinding goal from Desni Darch and two phenomenal strikes from Lucy Mager.

St Agnes hit back to score a sixth, but Weston hit back again to score an equaliser to leave the final score at 6-6.

An outstanding performance by the team with fine leadership and encouragement from captain Jasmine Baker, but all players deserve a mention for a fine second half display.

Players’ player went to Desni Darch and manager’s player went to Ellie Roberts.

The women are back at home on Sunday, taking part in the local derby against Mendip Ladies, a game not to be missed. Kick-off is 2pm at the Woodspring Stadium on the 3G.
