Lye Town Ladies 4 – 1 Worcester City Women

Jan 24th, 2022

A late Emma Collins goal proved nothing than a consolation, as Worcester bowed out of the Divisional League Cup to a strong Lye Town side.

 

City had their sights set on the next round of the competition at the start of the afternoon, however noticeable key players were missing from the side, due to injuries including, Amy Mulcock, Sophie Griffiths, Kerstin Ballard and Charlotte Wallis. The missing players helped culminate a difficult game for the girls in yellow and blue, eventually losing out 4-1. 

Senna Robinson made her debut for the first team yesterday after being promoted from the development team, which shows the commitment to giving youth players the chance they deserve in the first team. 

The game started off well for City as they were able to create some opportunities on goal with some promising one touch passing resulting in the first shot on target of the game by Farr. She worked space well on the edge of the area, however the following shot was comfortably into the arms of the keeper. Lye slowly worked their way into the game with them hitting the post in the 16th minute, after a forward got in behind the backline. As pressure built, Lye struck first as an outside the foot shot from the edge of the box ended in the top corner of the net.  

Lye went into the break 1-0 up leaving City a lot of work to do at half time. The task at hand got even tougher as straight from kick off, Lye doubled their advantage with a good passing move. A few minutes later Hine made a brilliant save once again to keep the score at 2-0. Unfortunately, in the 62nd minute Lye ended up making it 3-0 with another well put together goal. And as we entered the final 15 minutes of the game Lye got their 4th which put an end to any slim chance of City getting into the next round of the cup. 

Collins pulled 1 back for City with a great strike as she chipped the keeper. Lots of learnings to take from the game and with another youngster making their debut for City, the future looks bright for this young squad.

Worcester City Women will now re-focus their attention back on league action where we welcome Kidderminster to Claines Lane next Sunday for a 2.30pm kick-off, get your tickets here!
