Yeovil College Ladies Score 12
In the same week the England National team put 10 past San Mariano, Yeovil College ladies demonstrated a rampant scoring performance, managing to score 12!
YC ladies travelled to Kingston Maurward College on Wednesday 17th November looking to build on their previous win against Strode College, with Georgia Vincent and Chelsea Smalling coming into the team to make their debuts. The game got off to an even start, with the ball spending equal amounts of time in both halves, with YC goalkeeper, Jasmine Read, being called into action on numerous occasions. Where she was quick off her line to cancel out any KM advances on goal.
After an even first 10 minutes to the game, YC started to apply more pressure in the KM final third, with midfielders Charlotte Harmer, Lois Roadnight and Eve Martin moving the ball well and creating chances. This pressure from YC eventually paid off, where an error from a KM defender resulted in an own goal. Harmer continued to apply pressure down the wing for YC, where she was released into space behind the KM backline and slotted the ball across the goalkeeper into the bottom left corner with a crisp finish. Harmer managed to further capitalise on this good start by YC by rifling a shot from outside the box into the top right corner. After going 3-0 down KM started to apply more pressure, with defenders Liv Charles and Harriet Davis defending well, where Davis was required to make two last ditch covering tackles. However, after a period of possession for KM, Davis got caught up in a tangle with the KM attacker which resulted in a penalty, which was slotted past Read’s reach.
Going into the second half YC struggled to add to their first half lead, where they made plenty of chances but couldn’t find the KM goal. However, 10 minutes into the second half YC managed to capitalise on the chances, with winger Liv Birnie slotting one past the KM keeper. This then resulted in YC putting on a display of free-flowing attacking football, where a flurry of goals were scored throughout the second half. With the following players all getting on the scoresheet: Roadnight x 2, Amelia Brown, Harmer, Lydia Sangiovanni, Martin and Chelsea Smalling x 2.
There were a lot of nominees for player of the game, with Roadnight and Harmer making strong cases with their goalscoring and excellent control of the game from the midfield, Charles and Davis were also in the mix with their solid defending all game. However, Smalling was awarded player of the game, due to her never ending work rate up and down the pitch and managing to score two goals on debut!
