Weston Mendip women’s team continued their pre-season a 2-0 win against Welsh University side Cardiff Mets.

Weston Mendip formally Team Mendip, started the game well with Sarah Adams, Beckie King and Laura Jones controlling the midfield. Steph Goddard created several dangerous openings, her pace and energy causing problems for the opposition, before Sherise Binns opened the scoring with a well-taken goal after 15 minutes.

Cardiff had the better of the early part of the second half and with Weston Mendip ringing the changes from the bench, the Mets were unlucky not to level the score.

Mendip’s second goal came when Amy Clarke, who had switched from centre-back to centre-forward, outpaced the opposition defence before slotting the ball past the advancing keeper.

The Mets continued to push for a goal and had the opportunity to get back in the game when Amanda Hubbard, who had kept goal excellently all game, dived at the feet of the advancing forward which resulted in a penalty.

The spot kick cleared the crossbar and Weston Mendip saw out the rest of the game comfortably.
