Ilminster Ladies earn a draw
« on: January 15, 2007, 02:09:18 PM »
Somerset County League Cup

Ilminster Town Ladies 3, Street Ladies 3

IN this League Cup game both teams started the game as they meant to go on, with hard tackles going in from the start.

Ilminster opened the scoring when Ro Gawen challenged the keeper with a long range effort which the street keeper couldn't deal with. Five minutes after this Street pulled a goal back after a defensive mix up.

It was the league's top goal scorer Alice Charlton who then put Ilminster back in front after good battling. Ilminster's defence coped well with the strong street attack but after a lucky break Street had equalised again just before the break.

In the second half, Ilminster took the lead after some of the best football of the day. After the ball was passed well up the pitch, Alice Charlton crossed the ball through for Lesley Spearing to convert. Street's attack again battled hard and were rewarded for their efforts midway through the half as they converted from a corner. Girl of the game was the faultless Jo Clarke.
