Somerset County Women’s League: Wellington Ladies 0, Wells City 0
After bouncing back in last week’s fixture against Portishead Reserves, our Ladies hosted Wells City in an early reverse fixture.
The two teams played each other on the opening day of the season and provided a very entertaining match, so the home fans gathered in anticipation.
As the match began, Wellington attempted to take advantage of a seemingly flustered Wells City and created a few chances but Wellington were unable to make the most of the opportunity.
The first half progressed and Marie Barrow found herself on the edge of the Wells area with a chance to strike, however her effort scraped the wrong side of the crossbar, narrowly missing, although some of the home side, along with spectators, thought the long-range effort had gone in.
Moving on to the second half, Wellington’s excellent defence stayed resilient and their enthusiastic forwards created chance after chance, but to Wellington’s frustration it was Wells City keeper, Lucie Nurse, who stole the show.
Her bravery and nimble acrobatics stopped every effort thrown her way and kept the away side in the game even with Wellington pulling out all the stops in an effort to get the winning goal.
After a tough battle, the afternoon finished goalless and both teams walked away with a well deserved point, given their efforts.
Wellington will now look to next weekend as they travel to play Woodspring Women in the league.
