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.

After that, the Winscombe defence held firm with good saves from keeper Georgia Tulip and Joelle Dewey cutting out many crosses. Captain Caroline Glossop organised the players around her well and midfielders Sarah Kempster and Tracy Stokes linking well with centre forward Becky Matthews.
Winscombe scored a fantastic team goal which started from a long corner pass from Kindred to Dulcie Glossop, who swept a fierce ball into the D which Matthews fired into the goal.

After that Winscombe continued to attack and Matthews scored a powerful second from just inside the circle after a fantastic short corner injection from Stokes, before White Eagles equalised from a short corner routine of their own.
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.
