Trowbridge Town Ladies 9 Laverstock & Ford (Ladies) 1
Oh. My. God. What a match. With Woodmarsh flooded it was over to Warminster to play this eagerly awaited top of the table clash. With a bitterly cold wind blowing Town kicked off against the wind in the first half.
It was obvious from the start that the girls were up for it and after 10 mins a great free kick from Millie from the half way line was floated into the Laverstock box. Mia gets her head to it to loop it over the keeper and smashes it in from close range to be sure. The Town fans go wild as their team takes a 1-0 lead.
Laverstock then mount an attack and a good left shot goes narrowly wide. Laverstock then pin Town back and are awarded 2 free kicks on the edge of the Town box. Both sail just over the bar though with Jordy having them covered all the way.
A fine move down the other end involving Millie Mia and Lauren sees Lauren fire in from close range and its amazingly 2-0 WOOOOHOOOOO!!!!!!
Laverstock then have another shot down the other end sail over as the Town fans shout to JT to 'Let it go Let it go'...... We were frozen after all. It was a cold day.
Laverstock hit the side netting as Town are desperate to hold out until half time. JT saves a few more shots but a cross comes over and she can do little from a close range shot and 2-1 at Half Time.
Town come out for the second half and they are now with the wind. Bex takes advantage of this with a speculative lob over the keeper and its 3-1 !!!!!!! Mia drives in a great shot for 4-1 and Bex gets her second with a great free kick from 25 yards. The goals are raining in, Laverstock are beaten and the Town fans cannot quite believe what is happening. I break out into a rendition of We are Top the League but then stop just in case they get 4 in the last 20 mins. I dont wanna look an idiot 😉
Town now have all the pressure and a corner from Mia/Millie is volleyed wide by Louise. Bex shoots wide and then Charlotte gets in on the act with a fine shot for 6-1. They certainly aint scoring 5 with 10 to go so We are Top the League comes out again. The Town fans even manage a Mexican Wave.
Laverstock have now GIVEN UP and Millie nicks Mias goal with a sneaky tap in lol and 7-1. Charlotte fires in from distance for 8-1 (EIGHT ONE!!!!!!!!) and a Mia corner sees Jazz rise majestically in the box and head in for an unbelievable Final score of:
