As most matches were cancelled this week due to frozen pitches, it was down to Winscombe’s 4th XI to put in a good performance as their league match went ahead as scheduled.

Winscombe started the match in a determined way and attacked down both flanks. Lucy Kindred made early runs and showed good strength, but White Eagles scored the first goal from a penalty flick.

Winscombe dominated the second half, but were stopped by some good goalkeeping and the post on several occasions. Oceanne Shears, Katie Semple, Georgina Glossop, Hannah Glossop and Cara Ellis were strong in possession and played many good passes into the D.

The team welcomed back Katie Bowskill from a long term injury, who herself had a shot saved in the final minutes.
