Wolves Women: Brace by Hall and Hat-trick by Selmes

I’ve been negligent. I have not reported about Wolves Women for some weeks now and they are playing very well right now and are unbeaten for five games. That’s a better result than any of the mens teams can show up. Let’s catch up.

Yesterday they played against Copsewood Coventry Ladies away and crushed them with 4-1. The goals came from Becky Hall with a brace, Rebecca Large and captain Anna Perks.

The victory came as no surprise as Wolves did beat them by 4-0 at home a motnth earlier. Goals then by Hall, Quick, Williams and Perks.

The weekend before the last Wolves Women played Leafield Athletic – a team they drew with away a week before – and came out victorious with three goals against one. Wolves special goalscorer Dani Selmes scored a hat-trick.

Manager James Astle was very happy with the result (from the Wolves Official site):

We worked a lot in training on wing-play and it’s great that it’s paid off.

It’s brilliant to score three goals, and the hat-trick for Dani was especially welcoming.”

“I was disappointed to concede a goal but it was a dubious decision. I’m happy for the girls because they worked hard and fully deserved the result.”

Last time I wrote about Wolves Women they had just suffered a defeat away to Stoke. The next weekend they met them again at home and they did get their not so long waited for revenge.

But they had to wait for the decisive goal. Dani Selmes scored the first, but then Stoke City Ladies leveled it up in the 80th minute.

It took until the fifth minute of stoppage time when Abby Pope could walk the ball in after a superb cross by Hayley Packer.

Wolves Women has shown that they are a team that never gives up. After a lousy start they now are on third place in the tables – on the same amount of points as the second team.
