Frontiers Ladies 3 v 0 Tigers Ladies
ON Sunday Frontiers Ladies looked to get back to winning ways playing host to Tigers Ladies.
After a fast start and some slick football, it wasn’t long before Frontiers took the lead when Tayla Handscomb swung in a corner for the arriving Chloe Godleman-Barnum to power a header past the Tigers keeper.
With a strong grip on the game, Frontiers pushed hard for a second goal and created some excellent chances but were found wanting in front of goal.
Buoyed by the slenderest of margins, Tigers grew into the game and played some tidy football themselves but the Frontiers rearguard stood firm and the score remained 1-0 at half time.
Frontiers came out firing again after the break but it wasn’t until the 75th minute before they saw their lead doubled.
It was Handscomb once again providing the assist with a perfectly weighted through ball for Ella Fobbester to latch on to & Fobbester made no mistake, calmly rounding the keeper before slotting into an empty net with a neat finish.
With time ticking away, Tigers threw caution to the wind and tested the Frontiers resilience with some dangerous through balls but to no avail.
As the game grew to a close, Tayla Handscomb completed a trio of assists for the afternoon with a throw in that caught everyone off guard & gave Ella Fobbester the chance nip in and knock the ball past the onrushing keeper to leave herself the simplest of finishes & put the her side 3-0 ahead, sealing the 3 points for Frontiers & a warning them a well deserved win.
Assistant manager Steve Long said afterwards: ‘We asked the girls to start quickly this week and to play at a higher tempo and for the most part today we did that.
“Credit to everyone for sticking to the game plan and ultimately getting the result’
On Sunday, they host Beacon Hill in the first round of the League cup
