Huntingdon 0 Godmanchester 5
Godmanchester Rovers Ladies visited
their local rivals Huntingdon Town determined to prove they were the top ladies team in Huntingdon.The quality of the Rovers team soon showed as they totally dominated the game. Emily Ingle played a pin point
pass which spilt the Huntingdon defence
and Sarah Gee produced a quality chip over the oncoming keeper to open the scoring.The Rovers midfield continued to provide the ammunition for the rampant Finch
and Gee and Huntingdon could not cope with their quality or strength. Rovers made it 2-0 when Finch shrugged off two defenders to slot the ball home. Soon afterwards
a Rover corner was tucked away
by Laura McAllister to make it 3-0. With Huntingdon on the ropes Rovers continued to create chances with Perri Jefferies and Laura McAllister shooting just over
the bar and the Gee/Finch partnership coming close to double their tallys. The pressure paid off when a long ball over the Huntingdon defence was controlled by Rebekah Finch
and driven home for her second and Rovers fourth.
Huntingdon learnt their lessons from the first half and came out
in the second half more organised. However with the pressure once again mounting a clumsy challenge just outside the penalty area gave Rovers the chance they wanted.
Sarah Gee stepped up and drove the ball over the defensive wall but unluckily shook the cross bar. Soon afterwards Huntingdon once again gave away a free kick
on the edge of their penalty area. Huntingdon paid the price of not learning from the first free kick as Gee drove the ball home from over 20 yards out for her
second and Rovers fifth.
The remainder of the second half
saw Gee and Finch come close on a number of occasions for their hat tricks but the sixth goal would not come.
“ A 5-0 win in your local
derby is a super result and quite rightly the goal scorers get most of the praise and glory. However more pleasing than the
result was the fantastic team work
every player put into the game. Our midfield provided quality balls to the strikers and our defence and keeper were so good
Huntingdon did not get a single decent
chance all game. The score line clearly
shows that Rovers have quality players throughout their team and a class above their local rivals. The young Huntingdon team
never gave up but will surely struggle this season to fight off relegation into the County League”.
