Wolves Women got three points from Crew Ladies
Wolves Women played Crewe Ladies away Sunday and they did well.
But it was the Crew Ladies who got the first chance in the game. But Becky Thomas had no problems to save it. At the other end a new name to me – midfielder Kirstie Bavington – had a couple of chances. First she fired a shot onto the bar that bounced down onto the goal line, after which the Crewe defence cleared and then, just two minutes later she sent the ball across goal without no one else catched it.
By that Wolves had put the mark on the match and they were soon dominationg play and Amber Quick, Natalie Morris, Hayley Packer and Sophie Richards all had chances to put Wolves ahead. At the end of the half Crewe won two corners, which Wolves’ defender Layla Salter headed clear, and the first half ended as a goalless draw.
In the second half Wolves continued to dominate. Long time injured defender Durnall came on and finally Dani Selmes had a chance to score five minutes before the hour and took it. Just after the hour Perks was close to score as well, but her shot hit the crossbar.
Selmes, Richards and Packer all had chances after that, but their seemed to be a lack of precision in the last touch. But Wolves owned the game and in the last minute another shot hit the woodwork after a corner.
James Astle to the Official Wolves site after the game:
“It’s nice to get back to winning ways. We dominated the game, but we just had a problem finding the back of the net. It wasn’t for the lack of chances we created, it was just the final shot. We hit the bar twice and hit the post, but at the end of the day, three points is three points.”
TEAM: Thomas, Widdal (Large 75), Bradford (Durnall 45), Perks, Salter, Morris (Longhurst 75), Bavington, Quick, Selmes, Richards, Packer.
