Ladies Draw At Newbury

One Point Is Better Than None!

Although Newbury currently reside in the lower reaches of the table Wantage knew this wasn’t going to be an easy ride as their hosts had only lost to Flackwell (twice) and Taplow by single goal margins, and in Alice Hill they boast one of the leagues’ top scorers.

And so it proved that this game was a tight affair. Wantage certainly had the greater procession and better chances in the first half, but couldn’t find a way past keeper Carly Passfield who had spent the previous two games between the sticks for Newbury’s first team. Jade Wilkinson, Amelia Smith and Ashleigh Wilcox all had good opportunities but lacked composure at the crucial time.

Wilcox was a constant thorn in Newbury’s side and pretty much man-marked by Lauren Hanson. Twice the first-teamer scythed Wilcox down, but only the second was deemed worthy of a word from the official who should really have produced a card.

Newbury had their best spell early in the second period, but without unduly troubling Robyn Hill who was minding the Wantage net. The aforementioned Hill was kept pretty quiet throughout the game by the back four where skipper Naomi Loveless put in a player of the match performance.

As the game entered the latter stages Wantage were still looking the more likely to snatch the win, although the hosts were a threat on the break. And although Wantage were unable to find the crucial goal they were thankful for the point that moves them up a place in the league to fourth, two points off second spot.

There was a good shape to Wantage, and the performance was one of the best of the season in terms of football played with some good passing and off the ball movement.

Next up is a trip to Harefield in the League Plate.
