Wolves Women 1 – Sporting Club Albion 1

Wolves did not manage to win a second game against Sporting Club Albion (the team that used to be known as WBA) in two weeks .

But they managed to draw against a team that coach Astle said was the best that they have played at home this season. It is reported that it was an entertaining game with chances in both directions.

Wolves best chance in the first half came after half an hour when Sophie Richards hit the bar with a shot. Just before half time Wolves special goalscorer Dani Selmes had a good shot on goal, but the keeper in Albion saved it.

Wolves continued to pressure the local rivals in the second half and Amber Quick was denied by their keeper early on. But after the hour Wolves got rewarded when Selmes’s well placed strike beat the Albion keeper to give Wolves the lead.

Anna Perks shot just over the bar ten minutes later as Wolves continued to dominate the game, but a clearance by Wolves went wrong and fell to the feet of Phillipowski of Albion, and she took advantage to level the score. Sour grapes!

Wolves pressured to try to find a winning goal, but they had no luck and the game ended all square. Manager James Astle said to the Wolves Official site:

It was another great spectacle of football, and the game was much like last week. I’m a little bit aggrieved that the goal we gave away was a mistake. I’ll say once more Albion are the best footballing side we’ve seen here, and it was always going to be a wonder goal or a mistake which counted.”

“The players knew they’d been in a game when they came off. So it’s back to training tomorrow, preparing ourselves for a cup semi-final. We must be starting to go places – it’s interesting to see that teams we’ve got to play in the next few weeks are coming to watch us!

Wolves Women: Thomas, Widdal, Coley, Perks, Salter, Morris, Walker (Large 71), Quick, Selmes, Richards, Packer. NOT USED: Longhurst, Bradford, Durnall.
