Ladies 2s (4) – (3) Winchester 3s

Scorers: Palmer, Edwards, Robinson, Bouchard

Romsey travelled a short distance to Winchester on Saturday.

The match started with Winchester having 1st pushback putting Romsey on the back foot a little but with some good defending managed to keep Winchester away from the D. Then a lovely run from Emily Williams up the right, round the back line and passing the ball back towards Ella Palmer waiting on the penalty spot to sweep it passed the goalkeeper to open up the scoring.

Winchester tried to reply, gaining a short corner only to be denied by a great save from Katrina Penn-Newman in goal.

Romsey scored again as Amy Edwards with a slow and calculated move ended in a reverse flick passed the right of the goalkeeper. On a high Romsey kept good possession and a third goal just before half-time came from a pass from Emma Bouchard to the top of the D for Karen Robinson to sweep to ball into the bottom left corner of the goal.

In the second half Winchester piled on the pressure but Romsey managed to keep them at bay, a couple of short corners were won by Romsey but could not be converted.

Winchester then found a way through Romseys defence to score a well worked goal. Winchester took advantage as Romsey became a little tired, winning two short corners resulting in two more goals bringing the score level at 3-3.

Now being under immense pressure Romsey battled hard resulting in another brilliant run from Williams, this time up the left to curl round the back line again and take a shot unfortunately to be saved but following behind to pick up the rebound was Player of the match Emma Bouchard scoring Romseys 4th goal to win the match with minutes to spare.

A very well played match by the whole team sees Romsey in 6th position in their division.
