Report: Tottenham Hotspur Ladies 2-0 Bristol City Women

Bristol City Women began their Continental Tyres Cup campaign with a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur Ladies at Cheshunt FC.

Goals from Lauren Pickett and Bianca Baptiste earned the WSL 2 side the spoils in a frenetic encounter in North London.

The Vixens dominated possession throughout, often losing possession in the final third to enable the home side to counter attack.

Baptiste had the first chance of the game, with a strong effort across goal, but City Women goalkeeper Aimee Watson saved well by collecting the ball well at her near post.

City Women then found their rhythm, with Charlie Estcourt bursting her way into the box on 25 minutes, only to be denied by Chloe Morgan.

Minutes later, Flo Allen floated in a delightful free-kick which found Danique Kerkdik, but the Dutch international’s header was well saved once again. From the save, Spurs Ladies countered to find Baptiste, who fired her shot straight at the awaiting Watson.

The breakthrough came on 41 minutes, a scramble in the box from a corner found Lauren Pickett to fire home to give the hosts the lead at half time.

After half time, City Women started strongly with Julie Biesmans almost finishing off a neat move.

That resurgence was short lived however, with Baptiste doubling the hosts’ lead on the hour mark with a devastating counter attack.

For the remainder of the game, chances fell twice to Millie Turner, who came close but couldn’t convert.

A frustrating night in London for the Vixens, who face Chelsea up next in Group two on Saturday, November 4th (5:30pm kick-off).

City Women: Watson, Van De Putte, Kerkdijk, Fergusson, Allen (Humphrey 67), Estcourt, Woodham (Hemp 61), P Wilson (Palmer 21), E Wilson, Turner, Biesmans. Subs not used: Leach, Brown, Arthur, Daniels.
