The women’s football academy travelled to Bristol to play SGS College in the ECFA Premier League. Worthing started positively, despite only having about 10 minutes to warm up because of bad traffic en route. Annie Rolf capitalised on an SGS defensive error to slot the ball in to an empty goal to make it 1-0 to Worthing. SGS responded quickly to going a goal down and following a spell of good attacking play, equalised with a long range shot from outside the box. Hayley Bridge came close to putting Worthing ahead but her effort was tipped on to the post by the SGS goalkeeper. She had better luck the next time she was played through 1 on 1 and chipped the ball over the keeper in to the bottom corner to make it 2-1 to Worthing. The rest of the first half was closely contested but neither team were able to add any more goals.
SGS started off the second half well but Worthing held great shape and made it very hard for SGS to try and find a way through. With some good tackling and interceptions from Worthing players, Worthing looked dangerous on the counter attack and came close to adding a 3rd. Full-time 2-1 to Worthing. A great team performance, with everyone working extremely hard, gaining a first ever away win for the women’s academy against SGS. With 6 points from 3 games it has been a great start to the season for the team. Player of the match was goalkeeper Molly Towers.
