Frome Town 6-1 Bridgwater Town – South West Women’s League, Sun. 6th April

FROME Ladies knew it would be a physical match but were determined to get some points from their game and last home fixture of the season.

Frome started strong and immediately applied pressure from strikers Yeo and Lines. After much pressure from the midfield a shot from Bridgwater found the top corner of Frome’s net. Minutes later saw Evans through on goal and calmly blasted the ball past the Bridgwater keeper, level terms. Soon after a great ball from Rich saw Yeo get her first of the game. Then a corner from Evans came back to her and she managed to squeeze the ball across into the top corner from a very tight angle.

Just before half time Lines got a bad knock in the box on a one on one and was unable to continue, leaving Frome playing with 10. Frome knew the second half would be tough. Going forward again Frome were rewarded with a free kick 30 yards out, Dinham stepped up, who had had a fantastic game, and with pin point accuracy left the Bridgwater keeper no chance, lacing it into the top corner, 4-1. Frome, knowing they had to defend to keep the points, the way forward for Frome was attack on the break. Yeo was through again, and with quick feet found the  back of the net.

In the last minutes of the game Yeo found herself one on one with the keeper again, with a cheeky chip, she got her hatrick and finished off the scoring for the afternoon, 6-1.

Ali Bryant of the club said, “An excellent performance from the whole team, that stuck together and really pulled through as 10. Very, very proud of you all.”
