Top of the table win for Winscombe

Winscomble ladies defeat Mid Somerset in a top of the table clash.

WITH both teams near the top of the table, Winscombe’s victory was hugely important before Christmas.

The game started slowly and with a short corner being conceded by the opposition, this allowed Kelly to flip the ball into the net for the opener.

With a fine midfield display by both Michelle and Sarah, Winscombe kept up the pressure. After some great team play, a one-two between Kelly and Keri set up the second goal as the ball was played across the Mid Somerset goalkeeper to Sophie into the far corner.

As the game went into the second half, Mid Somerset stepped up their game to score. For Winscombe this was the hardest game of season to date. With the players eager to extend their lead, Winscombe pushed forward.

Julie and Jodie worked hard together at the back to ensure any counter play was stopped. Mid Somerset’s goalie saved some great shots on goal just as Kelly thought she scored. With time running out, Winscombe settled the nerves when Chloe passed the ball to Gabi to score.
