Somerset Women’s League: Wellington 3, Pen Mill Reserves 2
Our Ladies fought back from 2-0 down to record their first win of the season after a five-week break due to waterlogged pitches.
Wellington played downhill in the first half and took some time to settle into the game which cost them in the early stages allowing Pen Mill to put away two early goals.
Wellington did come back fighting and possession was being held in Pen Mill’s half. Link-up between Leah Morrell and Charlotte Phillips up front made Wellington look dangerous and, just before half-time Morrell had a one-on-one with the keeper, tucking the ball into the back of the net making it 2-1.
After the break, Wellington upped their game playing up the slope and dominated the majority of play. They were awarded a free kick just outside the 18 yard box and Molly Hines calmly slotted it perfectly above the keeper for the equaliser.
Not long after, Phillips took advantage of another opportunity to score putting the home side ahead for the first time.
There were around 20 minutes remaining for Wellington to remain strong in an exceedingly tense finish against a frustrated and determined Pen Mill team but the home side kept the well-deserved winning score until the final whistle.
A great performance from the whole team, who now face a trip to Keynsham on Sunday, December 8th.
