FOOTBALL: Weymouth Ladies egde out Bridgwater
WEYMOUTH LADIES 2 BRIDGWATER TOWN LADIES 1
WEYMOUTH Ladies produced their best performance of the season to beat high-flying Bridgwater Town in the South West League Premier Division.
The match was a tempestuous affair and the visitors had two players red-carded for comments made towards referee Cameron Lucas.
The Weymouth College pitch was in exceptional condition and this suited the home team who like to have a good surface to play their passing game on.
Weymouth pressed forward at every opportunity in the opening exchanges with Annie Redding and Jody Urwin going close.
After 25 minutes, Weymouth made their domination pay when Becci Vallard outpaced the Bridgwater defence and then chipped the ball neatly over the advancing keeper.
The game then had its first flashpoint when a Bridgwater player was sent off for what she said to the referee and within 10 minutes the visitors were reduced to nine as a result of a similar offence.
At half time Weymouth’s players were advised to remain coole and keep playing the way they had done in the first half.
Within five minutes of the restart it was 1-1 as a right-wing cross eluded Molly Hyde and goalkeeper Beth Smith was left with no chance from close range.
But this setback didn’t deter Weymouth and they got back in front on the hour mark.
Urwin put in a fantastic corner which a Bridgwater player sliced into her own net as she was pressured by Vallard at the near post.
This settled Weymouth and they totally controlled the rest of the game with Jess Turk wreaking havoc down the right, putting in a number of great crosses which for a variety of reasons failed to produce goals.
All in all it was a fantastic win for the Oasis Cafe-sponsored Weymouth side who now travel to Bristol Ladies Union and Frome Town in their next two fixtures.
