Ascot Ladies FC v Sandhurst Town Ladies FC – 9.11.2014

At a sunny Jubilee Park, Ascot, the home team started well with some good attacking play, but somewhat against the run of play, Sandhurst opened the scoring when a mistimed goal kick fell to the feet of JessicaLoomes, who took advantage, making the score 1-0. Grace Pilling capitalised a few minutes later when a free kick was crossed to her and playing incentre midfield position, she struck the ball soundly into the net.


Sandhurst soaked up a lot of pressure for the next twenty minutes with some excellent defensive work from Faye Caterer, Sue Hunter and Mary Kinsella. However Cora Kinsella seemed unsighted with the sun beaming down and a left sided Ascot attack took her unawares and they lobbed the ball over her head to bring the score to 2 -1. An evenly matched tussle with chances for both sides, the match swayed back to stalemate when just before half time Ascot equalised.

Ascot came out fighting in the second half and within the first minutes had gone ahead 3-2 with a break down the left side. The teams worked hard to create more chances. There was some solid work in midfield and defence by Jolene Ayres and Shellie-Anne Johnson and further outstanding sweeping play from Mary Kinsella, Sandhurst tried hard to push the ball upfield. It was not until the 75th minute when Leanne Caterer sent a ball through the defence to Jess Loomes , the she was able to guide the ball past the left hand of the keeper and into the net. Another chance fell to her through the middle, but was called offside. Level terms at 3 -3, Sandhurst tried hard to put more pressure on the home team. However despite some attempts on goal by Shannon Mather and Grace Pilling, together with a final free kick from Anna Chitty when she played the ball over to the head of Jessica Loomes, who was unable to convert the header, Sandhurst could not quite find the win they were looking for. Final Score 3-3.
