Macc crash against Airbus
« on: February 08, 2007, 10:02:45 AM »
LAST week the Silkgirls put in one of their best performances of the season to get through a Cheshire Cup tie.

This week they went to the other end of the spectrum in a 2-1 defeat against Airbus UK in the North West Women’s League Cup.

Macc started brightly enough but Airbus took the lead after some defensive errors allowed them to race through and score.

Macclesfield began to play some good football in parts but the Welsh side kept them at bay until just before half-time.

A free-kick was cleverly played back for Jenna Mape to power home.

In the second half Macc couldn’t perform consistently enough and Airbus regained the lead when a looping drive beat keeper Jo Mape.

Although Macclesfield pushed hard for the remainder of the game, Airbus deservedly progressed.

The team was: Jo Mape, Sue Bassett, Jodie Coutts, Jo Webb, Kati Hogan, Vicky Jepson, Sophie Massey, Jade Treanor, Krista Oakes, Jenna Mape, Sophie Thomason, Nessie Whitley, Beth Rankine.

MACCLESFIELD Town Silks had a tough cup draw against Chester, a good Division One side.


The Silks played well enough to take the lead after 30 minutes when Becky Snelson beat the offside trap and put the ball under the keeper.

Chester equalised just before half time, as Silks’ goalkeeper Tammy Hutchings was bundled over and the loose ball was forced home.

Early in the second half a defensive lapse allowed the visitors to edge ahead. As Macc looked for the equaliser, Chester scored a late goal to make it 3-1.

MACC Ladies’ Under-16s had a fine win, beating Port Vale 6-0.


Macc took the lead when Natalie Chapman’s pace allowed her to score.

The Macclesfield girls doubled the lead, Frost finshing a good team move by chipping home.

Macclesfield were dominating the game and the back four matched whatever Vale threw at them.

Chapman’s pace brought her two more goals for her first hat-trick of the season.

Vale tried to get a hold of the midfield in the second half but stout defending stemmed the tide.

Macc weathered the storm and Chapman notched her fourth goal.

A late Kylie Jones goal sealed a comprehensive win, as Macc secured their place at the top of the league.
