Weymouth gained their 2nd win of the season at home to Gillingham who were above them in the league.
The home side had a strong squad of 14 and felt confident and positive right from the warm up.
Weymouth started well and had a number of attacks down the right with Kym Young and Emily Austin linking up well.
Gillingham had a few counter attacks and looked dangerous at times but Wendy Butcher, as always, kept her cool and didn't let anything past her. Laura Osborne in goal looking more confident and accomplished with every match didn't have a great deal to do in the first half but what did come her way she cooly kept out.
Weymouth had a couple of short corners in quick succession scoring with the 2nd. A well worked routine between Wendy butcher and Emily Austin resulted in a good finish by butcher to beat the excellent gillingham keeper.
Kym Young had a great game in midfield linking well with players and battling hard.
1-0 at half time flattered gillingham as Weymouth should have been 2 or 3 up.
Versatile Chloe van crugten played in 4 different positions, competent and strong in all. A real asset to the team.
Weymouth continued well in the second half. Player of the match Naomi Gadian was excellent in defence. Reading the game so well and regularly breaking up gillinghams play.
Gillingham hadn't learnt from the first short corner as wey scored with an identical routine half way through the second half. Wendy butcher showing her class getting her second goal of the game.
Shortly after Lynda Drewitt scored with a rebound from another short corner when she pounced on a ball and buried it into the corner of the goal, as clinical as ever.
Gillingham started to get riled but kept their heads up to put together a good attack which resulted in a well worked goal.
