U18 Girls Central Warks League Premier Division:
Coundon Court 2 – 4 Evesham United 11th May
Evesham United U18 Girls finished their league season with a convincing 4-2 victory away to Coundon Court. With the Central Warwickshire Cup Final to look forward next week, the Evesham girls started the brighter with a high tempo and good passing.
After ten minutes Evesham had already had three chances to take the lead though the returning Shannon Murphy, Hannah Campbell and Zoe Pygott looking hungry for goals with a chance a piece. Pygott eventually broke the deadlock with a burst though middle and a composed finish past the keeper. Evesham quickly doubled their lead with Hannah Campbell latching onto a goalkeeping error to put the ball into an empty net. The second goal stirred the hosts into life with a couple of meaningful attacks and the Evesham players were thankful to hear the halftime whistle.
Coundon continued to press in the second half, the pressure paying off with a well worked goal. Evesham then got a grip on midfield with Hannahs Watts and Kedward looking for the wide outlets of Kelly Fowkes and Sophie Griffiths.
Shortly after Evesham got a third with another clinical finish from the inform Pygott twelve yards out. Coundon came back on the attack and scored to get back to 3-2 with the majority of the second half still to play.
Coundon put the pressure on to find another but with no success. The back three partnership of Beth Guy, Lauren Cowley and Amy Campbell holding strong and Millie Meadows breaking down the opponents play in her familiar position in front of the defence.
With the home team committing players forward, Coundon were leaving gaps at the back and were undone once again, Pygott finishing from close range to complete a deserved hat-trick.
Evesham closed out the game to secure a deserved victory before the Cup final next week, and confirmed them in 2nd position in a tough league with the likes of Coventry, TNS and Walsall all finishing behind the Cup finalists.
Next Saturday the Evesham Girls travel to the League’s Cup Final at Rugby Town JFC on the 18th May KO 6pm – all supporters would be very welcome.
The girls are also looking for new recruits for next season to keep up the high quality performances they are used to.
