Depleted Knowle fall short

Knowle Ladies 0-3 Lye Town

Knowle Ladies lacked numbers for their game against Lye Town, only able to field the bare eleven. The Robins rose to the challenge however and put in a solid performance. In fact, the first couple of chances in the game fell to Knowle, Lucy Taylor and Claire Richardson going close. New players and some of the squad playing in unfamiliar positions did start to show eventually though and Lye claimed most of the possesion in the first half. Katy Smirthwaite made a good save to deny the away side and Sarah Moore made a key block. Lye did go ahead when their forward wriggled clear of two challenges in the box. Mel Faulkner got a toe on the ball but only suceeded in poking it back towards her own goal and the onrushing striker. Smirthwait made the save but the ball cannoned up into the chest of the attacker and bounced into the net. Knowle continued to battle throughout the game. They could have equalised when Taylor met Celina Smallwood's through ball, but the Lye keeper pushed her shot over the bar. Knowle relied on a strong rearguard action to keep Lye at bay as they could not keep the ball for very long. Hannah Owen made a crucial tackle and Sam Smith headed one off the line. Lye extended their lead with twenty minutes on the clock, Knowle slow to get out after clearing a corner and allowing the Lye midfielder to meet a cross and roll the ball home from three yards out. The away side added extra gloss to the scoreline late on when a speculative effort from out wide flew over Smirthwaite and into the net. A good effort from the depleted Knowle side, particularly from the players who are unused to playing ninety minutes. They will look to build on this work ethic when their numbers increase again.
