West Clubs Women’s League East Division



WEYMOUTH were left feeling frustrated as despite a fine second-half performance they left Bournemouth empty-handed.

The Seasiders did not know what had hit them when Bournemouth opened the game with attack after attack which resulted in some stunning saves from player of the match, keeper Megan Eadon.

Bournemouth eventually went ahead from a penalty corner.

The hosts continued to apply force and Weymouth had to defend several attacks with Eadon making more saves but could not prevent a second goal before the half-time whistle.

Coach Dan Bowles changed the formation at the interval which gave Weymouth a solid back wall enabling Weymouth to focus on attacking.

The majority of the play was now in Bournemouth’s half and from pure persistence and great game play with short sharp passes, Emily Austin found the net by hitting a lovely shot past the outcoming Bournemouth keeper to make it 2-1.

Bournemouth blatantly time wasted but one of the umpires allowed this to happen without punishment, which foiled Weymouth gaining the all-important equaliser.

The match was definitely a game of two halves with Weymouth feeling frustrated with the loss.

Player of the match: Megan Eadon
