Ladies 2s (3) vs (3) City of Portsmouth

Scorers: Beeching, Bryant 2

Romsey ladies 2nd XI nailed two late goals to clinch a 3-3 draw with City Of Portsmouth

Romsey started well, controlling the game from the back for the opening quarter and were rewarded when player of the match Emily Williams made a perfectly timed run into the D to sweep in a cross from midfielder Emma Beeching.

Williams continued troubling Portsmouth’s defence forcing several saves in the first half but Romsey went into half time drawing 1-1 after a defensive mistake was punished with a penalty corner converted despite two instinctive initial saves by Keeper Georgie Pugh.

Just minutes into the second half Romsey key central midfielder Emma Bouchard went off injured and Romsey’s early composure was shaken. Ten minutes in and a string of Portsmouth short corners resulted in two more goals leaving Romsey 3-1 down. But credit to Romsey, with just 10 minutes to play they picked up the pace and pushed forward.

Tactics which paid off when Matilda Bryant got on the end of a searing cross by Emily Pitt Pitts to wrong foot the keeper and take the score to 3-2. Bryant was outstanding up front, claiming a second goal 3 minutes later, this time a deflection courtesy of ball delivered by Tracy Nicoll. Romsey were on the attack again when the final whistle went to deny them their first home win.
