With the Mens 1s game cancelled due to the opposition not being able to raise a side and all other sides not having fixtures the ladies 2s played a friendly.
Whitchurch ladies 2s 12 Runcorn ladies 2s 2
On the 29th of October 2016 Whitchurch Ladies 2’s played a friendly against Runcorn Ladies 2’s who are in the above league. Whitchurch expected a hard game and fielded a strong team but due to availability Runcorn brought a young team with several debutants and Whitchurch provided a number of players to support the them.
The game started with both teams evenly matched, but Whitchurch got the lead with a goal from Ashleigh Heath. The game was close as Runcorn then scored. Another two goals from Grace Berry and Lisa Sullivan secured Whitchurchs’ win, but just before half time Runcorn scored again, making the half time score 3-2 win to Whitchurch.
During the second half Whitchurch got into their attacking stride scoring nine goals, new girl Aisla Cairns with 5 goals, Mel Reid (her first ever for Whitchurch) Amy Fry, Grace with a second and finished as Ashleigh Heath scored her second. Whitchurch played well defensively with Mel Reid, Emma Clarke, Emily Hilton, Catherine Reece-Gresty and Katie Goodwin. Thanks must go to Phoebe Jones, Molly Goodwin and Vicky Corlet who played well for Runcorn, particularly to Phoebe who scored!
The 2’s have a break next week before their next league game against Bebington Ladies 2s at home.
