Report: West Ham United 2-0 Bristol City Women

City Women fall to a 2-0 defeat on the road at the hands of West Ham United. 


What Happened? 

Alisha Lehmann almost opened the scoring for the hosts in the opening ten minutes but her shot was cleared off the line by the City Women defence. 

Lehmann got the home side off the mark soon after when her deflected shot wrong footed Baggaley in the City Women goal and squeezed in at the near post. 

Ella Rutherford almost bought her side back into the game when a pass from Carla Humphrey found the forward in space, but Moorhouse was down well to her right to keep the effort from nestling into the bottom corner of net. 

The forward had a second chance to get the visitors back in the game, but her shot from the edge of the area whistled past the post. 

Sophie Baggaley made a couple of fine saves from Claire Rafferty and Leanne Keirnan  at the end of the first half to keep her side within touching distance of the hosts at the break. 

Baggaley was again equal to the Hammers’ best efforts early in the second half as Longhurst shot from range, before Juliette Kemppi saw her left-footed effort saved by Moorhouse.

Rosella Ayane had a chances to bring City Women level towards the end of the second half, but fortunately for the home side Moorhouse produced a brilliant save to keep the forward’s effort out of the top corner. 

As City Women pressed for an equaliser they were caught out by, Jane Ross, who intercepted a pass and tucked the ball into the back of the net to secure victory for West Ham United.
