Cookley Panthers Girls 0, Wyre Forest Phoenix U13s 3
RIGHT from the first whistle, the Phoenix U13s girls meant business with the possession coming their way.
After just five minutes, a chip over by Elise Hughes saw her first assist on Jasmine Whitmore’s goal to take the lead.
The girls however were starting to play individually again, smashing the ball everywhere and trying to shoot from range.
Cookley’s keeper kept saving the lobs easily and despite winning the ball and not passing, it was just before half time before Lauren Snyed chipped a ball over to assist Jasmine’s second.
The second half started the same with girls playing individually and making things more difficult for themselves. The girls started passing after putting Holly Tew upfront.
Just before full time, a second assist for Hughes saw Whitmore complete her hat-trick.
Wyre Forest Phoenix U16s 4, Coundon Court Girls 3
Once again having to play with just 10 players, Phoenix hosted Coundon, who are riding high in the League.
After a slight delay the game kicked off and like last time the Flyers were on the attack and it took two minutes before Sydney Harris came through from the centre to shoot on target but was denied.
Fleur Connolly then floated in a corner for the Flyers, again saved by the Coundon keeper, and it took until nine minutes for Harris to break the deadlock with her first goal.
Just a minute later the Flyers’ Charlotte Morris turned in front of goal, shot and scored the second. Coundon fought back, scoring after 15 minutes, and despite some near misses, it was Coundon that broke through next to equalise after 28 minutes.
The Flyers had worked hard and needed to dig deep in the second half. Connolly got on target shortly after half time to put the Flyers ahead again.
Harris put the team further ahead half way through the second period, and although Coundon managed to score from a rebound off the post, it was too little too late for the league title contenders.
