Ladies 2's secure a valuable 3 points and rise up the league table.
By Nicky Ball
Basingstoke ladies 2s managed a win against Romsey at home with a score of 1-0.
It was one of the best performances Basingstoke has shown this season despite having no subs. They used short sharp passes to maneuver around the Romsey players and get the ball up to the forwards. The defence passed the ball particularly well round the back and Sarah Mainprise smacked some great balls up the line.
Rachel Roberts used her skill and speed down the left wing to create some great opportunities up front as she crossed the ball into the D. This resulted in her tapping the ball into the goal from a pass from the top of the D to bring the score to 1-0.
Despite several chances in the D Basingstoke were unable to get another into the back of the goal before half time.
Basingstoke knew that Romsey were going to come out hard in the second half but they came out even more determined to get a win. They kept their cool and every player gave 100%. Sarah Lucas and Charlotte Barsby made some great tackles in the defence and midfield, to protect Basingstoke’s goal.
Basingstoke didn’t manage to get another goal but finished with a win they were determined to come away with.
The score finished at 1-0 to Basingstoke.
