Report: Liverpool Women 5-2 Bristol City Women

A hat-trick curtesy of Rinsola Babajide sees Liverpool Women defeat Bristol City Women 5-2 at Prenton Park on Sunday afternoon.

Bristol City Women got off to a less than ideal start when Danique Kerkidijk’s pass was picked off by Babjide, who drove into the box before cooly slotting the ball into the back of the net in the tenth minute.

The visitors raised the intensity as they went in search of an equaliser and they were rewarded in rather fortuitous circumstances. Kerkidjk’s free-kick from forty-five metres out was allowed to bounce in the box and it nestled in the far corner past Preuss.

However, City Women weren’t level for long as Babajide capitalised on a defensive mistake to flick the ball over the head of Flo Allen, before driving the ball into the roof of the net to restore her side’s lead.

Yana Daniels doubled her side’s lead before the end of the first period after she peeled off her defender and headed in Christie Murray’s cross from six-yards out.

Bristol City Women started positively after the break with a couple of chances falling to Abi Harrison and Lucy Graham, but the Scottish duo were unable to trouble Preuss in the Liverpool net.

Frankie Brown then forced Preuss into a smart save with a fine strike from twenty-five yards, which the goalkeeper had to tip over the bar.

Babajide completed her hat-trick in the sixty fifth minute as she latched onto to Niamh Charles’ through ball before caressing the ball into the far corner.

City Women pressed for an avenue back into game and they earned themselves a faint glimmer of hope as Niamh Fahey turned Katie Robinson’s cross into her own net with ten minutes left on the clock.

However, as the visitors pressed for another goal they were caught on the counter as substitute, Ashley Holden raced through on goal and lobbed the ball over the helpless Baggaley.

Bristol City Women will have to quickly turn their attentions to their final game of the FA Women’s Super League season when they face West Ham United at the SGS College Stoke Gifford Stadium on Sunday, April 28th (3pm).
