Winscombe Ladies 3rd XI 3

Hanham 1

Winscombe 3rd XI wanted to end the season on a high, with the knowledge that a win would secure a top four league place.

Hanham pressured the Winscombe defenders of Sarah Johnson, Kat Dee, Steph Osmant and won a short corner, which was cleared.

Winscombe found their shape and started to pressurise the Hanham defenders through the forwards of Ella Hutchinson, Olivia Dilly and Izzi Morgan. Midfielders Anya Laurence, Maddy Bawden, Emma Whitehead, Gail Izzard and Flo Wring kept up the pressure.

Winscombe converted their second penalty corner after Whitehead injected the ball to Izzard, while the initial shot was saved Whitehead slotted home her first of the match.

Another short corner saw Helen Sinclair inject to Izzard, who passed the ball to Whitehead to score her second goal.

Keeper Elainna Teare saved many one-on-one situations before Hanham pulled a goal back.

Winscombe’s third goal was well-worked with Izzard, Wring combining before Sinclair passed the ball across the D and a calm Morgan scored.

With eight minutes remaining, Sinclair deflected a shot with her stick and unbeknown to the umpire her foot into goal. While the goal was awarded, Sinclair informed the umpire what happened. This highlighted the spirit the game was played in and meant an enjoyable end of the season.

The 3rd XI have had a successful first season in Brunel 2 after winning promotion last season and will finish either third or fourth.

Player of the match was Emma Whitehead.
