BIDEFORD LADIES CLAIM A HARD EARNED POINT
Bideford Ladies remained unbeaten for the month of September after a hard fought 2-2 draw against Devon rivals Feniton Ladies.
Feniton promoted to the South West Women’s League this season lost to Bideford Ladies 4 times 2 years ago including a cup final so they had a point to prove.
It was Bideford who opened the scoring after 5 mins when a poor clearance by Feniton’s keeper was smashed home by Alice Beresford
. Bideford were then put under pressure on a hard, bumpy small pitch that prohibited their passing game. A defensive error led to Brittany Harris curling a shot beyond Zoe Stock
in goal and that was quickly followed by a great shot from distance from Abi Breban.
Bideford regrouped and coped better with Feniton’s direct style of play in the second half. With 10 mins left Rohana Little
fired across the goal for Caz Parsons
to apply the last touch with a cool finish to level the score. Bideford survived a last onslaught but the defence marshalled by Sarah Short
secured the hard-earned point against a determined Feniton team. Bideford would like to thank Bideford Bridge Trust for their generous grant that will help to fund the running costs of the club this season.’
