Wolves Women Win away to Sporting Club Albion
Though the season is over for the men of Wolves, Wolves Women are still fighting in their league.
Sunday they played Sporting Club Albion in their last away game for the season. It was a rather scrappy first half where the teams cancelled each other out, and there were only a few chances. Dani Selmes and Amy McCann did shoot on goal, but they were saved and Becky Thomas saved a couple of shots at the other end.
But the other half saw another Wolves team with some more fighting spirit. The play was carried out more on the Albion side of the pitch and after the hour Sally Stanton used her head to take Wolves Women to the lead.
Finally Amy McCann did a fantastic solo number a few minutes before time when she flicked the ball over a defenders head and then dinked the ball over the Albion keeper as well to make the final score 2-0.
Captain Anna Perks, who took a knock on her ankle five minutes before the half-time break and was substituted in the pause, said to the Official Wolves site:
“The first half was quite scrappy but once we got the goal we really pushed on and started to dominate the game. I was disappointed to have to come off, but it’s best that I rest my ankle before the final game of the season next week. It was great to see Sally come on and score and hopefully we can round off the season in style next week.”
A final chance to see Wolves Women play is in the penultimate match of the season at home on Goodrich Sportsground when they take on TNS next Sunday, the 16th, at 2pm.
