Worthing College 7 – Merrist Wood 0 ECFA Premier League
The game began evenly with both teams having good spells of possession. Although Worthing were first to test the opposition’s goalie from a through ball to Valentine from Danielle but the Merrist Wood keeper was there to pick it up. Not long after Worthing became more dominant in possession and it wasn’t long until they found the back of the net with Hayley running in from the wing to then find Annie with a square ball who buried it in the bottom right corner. This made the score 1-0 to Worthing. A few more shots tested the goalie coming from Dan, V and Sara however none were able to put them ahead. The score then went to 2-0 to Worthing from a quick attack that caught Merrist Woods defence out. Sara made a run from the wing to be found by a pass from Annie, who then managed to find the back of the net with a calm finish into the bottom right corner. With no real threats in the first half for Molly the Worthing goalie the score at half time stayed 2-0.
The second half began with high pressure from Worthing College and they were soon to find the net again from good combination play from the midfield and Dan found Hayley who passed it bottom left and the score then 3-0. Some more build up play that started from Worthings defence caught Merrist Wood off guard and V got on the ball in the penalty area to have a shot deflected into the top of the net. Score now being 4-0. Some good possession from Merrist Wood resulted in no real opportunities. Quick passing between Hayley and Dan managed to confuse there defence and again Worthing were in on goal this time with Dan who slotted the ball past the keeper making the score 5-0. A change of positions Sara going into centre forward and V going onto the wing meant that Dan spilt the oppositions centre backs and Sara had the ball at her feet 1-1 with the Keeper once again and found the net easily. Score now 6-0 to Worthing. Not long left in the game but Worthing weren’t finished just yet when Annie was found on the ball from a rebounded shot and flew over the keepers head the score now 7-0. Still no real threat from Merrist Wood the game ended 7-0 to Worthing College.
