Ladies Defeated

Kingslcere Too Strong For Wantage

Wantage travelled to Kingsclere on Sunday looking to better the 4-1 defeat earlier in the season, athough with the hosts sitting atop the league with a 100% record it was a tough challenge.

And Kingsclere started the strongest with some probing runs down the right but were unable to hit the target. And when they did get clear of the Wantage defence they found keeper Robyn Hill in fine form who pulled off a number of great saves to keep Wantage in the game.

When the breakthrough did come, through Dani Smithers after 22 minutes, it was a well struck 20 yard shot that clipped the inside of Hill's left-hand post just out of her reach leaving Wantage to rue not clearing their lines with any conviction.

At the other end Kat Boylan released Jade Wilkinson on 30 minutes, but the latter shot straight at the advancing keeper. Ky West fired over when well-placed from a good Sam Mundy cross a minute later, and the visitors had a couple of long-range efforts comfortably held.

Hill then made another couple of smart saves to keep the score at 1-0 going into the break.

Wantage shot themselves in the foot a minute after the restart after allowing the left winger to get behind the defence and deliver to the far post for a simple tap-in for Carly Duckett.

Wantage continued to press with Ashleigh Wilcox getting some joy down the right wing, and Ally Paton driving forward from the back caused the home side problems. Wilkinson also managed to break free a couple of times but again couldn't find her way past the keeper.

Kingsclere also had their chances, with Hill deserving her 'player of the match' accolade thanks to some brave keeping.

Then with 9 minutes remaining Wantage finally got the goal they deserved. Mundy found Vicky Teague on the left wing who in turn found Wilkinson free on the edge of the box. Wilkinson looked up, saw the run from Wilcox and delivered the perfect cross for the latter to run onto and fire past the keeper.

Boosted by the goal, Wantage upped their game with Kingsclere starting to wobble. And they nearly found a second goal five minutes later when Paton rose superbly at the far post to meet a Wilcox corner, but unfortunately couldn't get her powerful header on target.

Although that now makes three defeats in the opening five games there is plenty of promise in the team with a little more composure and awareness needed to tip the scales in our favour.

Next up is a trip to Taplow, a bit of an un-known quantity although their results against teams we've played are similar so it should be a close game.
