City's Final Game of the Season



Lye Town 2 – 1 WCWFC

 

In what was City’s final game of the season, after winning the league at home last week, they competed against second in the league, Lye Town in a closely contested battle. The game ended this time with Lye Town taking the victory despite a tough fight from both.

 

In the first half, after a couple of half chances from both sides, the closest effort in front of goal came from City’s number six. Laura Davies had a fantastic effort on target in the 23rd minute. Her stunning strike came in from outside the box to rattle the crossbar, inches short of crossing over the line.

 

The half ended with City dominating possession despite the slippery conditions making it hard for both teams to get a good grip on the ball. Things stayed tight across the pitch from both sides in what was, so far, a neck-and-neck fixture. City’s goalkeeper, Sofia Stolt, however, gave City the edge after some superb fingertip saves throughout to prevent Lye from breaking through.

 

In the opening first stages of the second half, both teams quickly found the same rhythm they left off with. Stolt turned hero once again in the 52nd minute, palming Lye’s shot above goal. It was Lye Town who opened the scoreline up and, after a good play of attack, saw the opposition cross in front of the goal mouth and slide a shot into the right corner, minutes after Stolt’s save.

 

City striker, Olivia Mitcham bought some momentum back for City with a floating effort gliding over the crossbar. After some time in which City found it hard to make things happen, of course, it was City’s captain who brought City level. Following a corner, the ball was headed into the air finding Fassnidge. The number seven volleyed the shot to tuck it nicely into the bottom left corner in the 78th minute.

 

Unfortunately, Lye Town shortly extended their lead once again as they slotted their second past Stolt to hit the back of the net. Despite City doing their best to level up in the dying minutes, the game ended in defeat for the League Champions.

 

We would like to take the time to thank all of our fans for their continued support throughout the season and we hope you enjoyed it just as much as we did.

 


 

Coventry United 1 - 0 Worcester City


The Worcester City Women U18s ended their season with a hard-fought battle away at Coventry United. Despite the final score line, the team showcased tremendous spirit and determination throughout the match and were unlucky not to win the game.


The game started with high intensity, and it was Coventry United who struck first with an early goal. The hosts capitalised on a moment of fortune when a speculative attempt on goal ricocheted off the inside of the post and found its way into the net. This early setback tested the Worcester City defence, but they remained composed and organised to see out the half.


The second half saw a resurgent Worcester City side. The team defended valiantly, demonstrating grit and determination, as they worked tirelessly to keep Coventry at bay. The backline, anchored by some stellar performances, repelled numerous Coventry attacks and kept the score line within reach.


With just five minutes left on the clock, Worcester City came agonisingly close to an equaliser. Ellie, showing great vision and technique, unleashed a powerful shot from a Connie through ball off a forward pass from Becca, that beat the Coventry goalkeeper but cruelly struck the crossbar. The entire team continued to press forward, but despite their best efforts, they were unable to find the back of the net.


Jenna, whose relentless work rate and composure under pressure stood out, was rightfully awarded the Player of the Match.


While the result was not in Worcester City's favour, the team's performance, especially in the second half, was a testament to their hard work and determination throughout the season. They defended with their hearts on their sleeves and fought until the final whistle, leaving the pitch, and their 2023/24 season with their heads held high.
