Ladies hit Nailsea for six

Weston ladies recover from 3-0 down to defeat Nailsea 6-3 in their latest league match.

WESTON ladies entertained Nailsea and were looking for their eighth win of the season.

Weston got off to a promising start, transferring the ball with pace and accuracy across the width of the pitch. Despite the promising start, Weston found themselves 3-0 down just before half time, as Nailsea found the net from various set pieces.

Weston started their fight back with high spirits with a quick pass from Tina Delaney to Nikki Baker who claimed the first goal and they were unlucky with two goals disallowed before the break.

In the second half, Weston scored after just three minutes when Michelle Tuxford netted and Rosie Bellenger scored seven minutes later, with a pass from Charlie Crandon across the D, Bellenger pushed the ball home to tie the game 3-3.
