Worcester City Women Weekly Round Up – 05/03 & 06/03
March 7, 2022
Welland Ladies 0 v 13 Worcester City Women Development
Worcster City Women Development Team traveled to Wellend on Sunday for their Midwest Counties Female Football league game. A steady start saw the Welland keeper making a string of excellent saves before City found the breakthough at the twenty minute mark, opening the scoring and netting nine goals in five minutes.
Georgia Marrett added another four goals to her tally, with another excellent and clinical performance, and a variety of finishes too. Libby Drapier scored herself a hat-trick with extremely smart feet and quality composed finishes. Leah Ritson and Izzy Gibbons grabbed two goals each and lastly, Katie Lawrence and Ella May both got a goal on the scoresheet.
This sees the fourth consecutive clean sheet for City, which couldn't be achieved without the excellent defensive play and effective goalkeeping, contributing to the teams continued excellent performances and success.
With thanks Dave Jenkins and Sam Pittaway for their continued support undertaking linesman duty.
Worcester City Women u18 1 v 3 Solihull Sporting
City started the game very well, pressing from the opening whistle and keeping the ball in the opposition half. There were a few early chances where we were able to play some good link up football but just unable to find the final pass or finish to be executed accurately.
Solihull Sporting started to get back into the game and had a few early shots on goal which Katie Thatcher did a great job keeping
them at bay. After a good bit of play down the left hand side Leah Ritson was able to get a ball squared to Katie Lawrence in the box. The goalkeeper made an initial save but Katie did well to retain the ball with her back to goal, get a touch out of her feet, and beat the defender and have a simple finish for Worcester to take a 1-0 lead. Solihull were able to get back into the game taking a 2-1 lead going into the break.
Going into the second half, City struggled to regain the momentum from the first half. The girls battled in every one vs one
challenge but Solihull proved to be too physical and did well taking their chances to finish the game 3-1.
