Frome Ladies’ success over local rivals

Frome Town Ladies under 13s made the short trip to play Westbury Amazons in their latest league game.

Frome started slowly and were 1-0 down within 2 minutes after a good move from Westbury. This seemed to kick-start Frome and Sammie, playing her first game in the middle of the park, started to play telling balls to Martha and Maya to attack the home team’s defence. From another great pass she found Katie to finish well into the corner of the net to make it 1-1

The game opened up with end-to-end play from both teams. Frome forced a corner and from a great cross  from Aimee, Katie was there to finish to put the reds 2-1 up. Frome continued to press and from a poor clearance, Katie picked up the ball and beat two defenders to score her well-deserved third goal.

Westbury weren’t finished and with minutes to go before half-time, pulled one back to make it 3-2 at half-time. Frome were under pressure from the start of the second, with Westbury able to bring on fresh legs to push hard at Frome. But whatever was thrown at the defence,  Jazz Aimee and Betty were equal to it, making tackle after tackle and safe hands from Georgia kept the home team at bay.

With minutes to go Frome broke with Aimee down the right who found Maya who beat the defender before chipping the keeper for a superb finish to make it 4-2.  An excellent team performance by the girls who all worked extremely hard to pick up a well deserved 3 points. Player of the match Katie
