Draycott Ladies were looking to gain revenge for a 3-0 defeat in a recent game at Crewkerne and also leapfrog their opponents in the league table and they did this in a strong performance.

Draycott got off to a strong start with Eviee Smith going close on several occasions and the team working well as a whole, with Smith and Caitlin Skinner a constant threat in attack, alongside Lauren Ford.

Keeper Nicky Mills was given great protection by the Draycott defence of Lesley Smith, Amy Uzarowska and Scarlett Mathison, but when called on Mills did a brilliant job.

After missing several chances, Draycott opened the scoring when Mollie Smith set up Caitlin Skinner for a close-range tap-in, giving the home team the lead.

The second half saw the game settling into the same pattern with both sides having spells in domination, but the best chances again falling to the hosts.

However it was Crewkerne who got the next goal to equalise with a shot that gave Mills no chance in the Draycott goal.

Draycott regained the lead when the impressive Lauren Ford smashed home a free kick from 20 yards out. Soon after it was 3-1 as Skinner got her second with a sublime chip that gave the keeper no chance.

There was still time for one more goal, despite a plethora of missed Draycott chances, and it was fitting that the superb Eviee Smith slotted home from close range.

The team, sponsored by Cheddar Self Storage, was delighted to have chalked up their third win of the season and reached double figures in points.

The food and drink was again kindly provided to both teams by Mick and Lori at the Strawberry Special.
