Wolves Women defeated at Stoke
The Wolves Women yesterday were guests to Stoke City Ladies in a league game.
Wolves started well and had several chances to score as they dominated play. But if it was bad precision or good defending by the Stoke team, the ball just didn’t find the net.
Instead the City Ladies took the lead just before halftime and Wolves Women had something to discuss over a cupper.
Wolves started the second as they had the first – with lining up chances and pressuring the hometeam. But this time it paid off. The Women’s special goalscorer Dani Selmes found the net with a lob after about ten minutes gone of the half.
Now Wolves were looking for a winning goal and pushed forward even more – hitting both the upright and the post in their efforts.
But instead of a winning Wolves goal, Stoke managed to go forward in a counter-attack and hit the crossbar. The ball bounced off and after a goal scramble it was found in the net. What a drag!
The Wolves Women manager James Astle said to the Official Site:
“Considering the possession we had, I’m disappointed with the result, especially as I don’t think we did a lot wrong. The fixture list has given us the opportunity to turn things around as we play host to Stoke next week in the return fixture. It’s half time in a six point game!“
That’s the spirit! You can watch Wolves Women get their revenge at home (Goodrich Sports Ground, Fordhouses, Wolverhampton) at Sunday 2pm.
Team: Hall, Bavington, Salter, Perks, Owen, Morris, Pope (Walker 78), Quick, Selmes, B. Hall, Packer (Richards 70). Subs: Widdal, Williams.
