Report: Yeovil Town Ladies 0-2 Bristol City Women

Bristol City Women made it three wins in a row over Yeovil Town Ladies at the Viridor Stadium in Taunton.

City Women came flying out of the blocks, with relentless attack from the off.

The first chance came within two minutes, with Chloe Arthur switching the play across field, finding speedster Lauren Hemp, but the youngsters shot was well-saved by Beth Howard.

On the ten minute mark, Jess Woolley played an inviting through ball to Hemp, which put the striker one on one with Howard but the Yeovil keeper was equal to it.

City Women’s interplay was causing Yeovil real problems, and the next chance came from neat play between Jasmine Matthews and Danique Kerkdijk, enabling Hemp to break free, but once again Howard saved well for a City Women corner.

From that corner, the ball fell to Chloe Arthur, whose shot on the turn was inches wide.

On the twenty minute mark, Woolley had the chance for a dream first start, receiving the ball in the box and her curling effort was inches wide.

City Women were in complete control and they finally broke the deadlock on 30 minutes through a Hemp wonder goal. The youngster chased a ball that seemed certain to go out of play, cut back inside and fired off of her right foot into the top corner of the net.

The half-time score was 1-0 to the visitors, however the play until that point was frantic, with Woolley having a goal disallowed and Yeovil also hitting the post off a deflected Jessie Jones shot.

The Vixens started the second half the way they started it, with chances for Flo Allen, Yana Daniels and Millie Turner within the first ten minutes. Allen burst down the right wing and cut inside to fire a shot straight at Howard, Daniels had a free-kick excellently saved and Millie Turner’s flying header was inches wide.

City Women doubled their lead on the hour mark, Hemp made a run down the left, driving a low cross into Daniels who fired home with a low driven, first time shot.

On 65 minutes, Caitlin Leach was called into action for the first time was an incredible double save. The first effort was tipped on to the bar and then the second effort was pushed wide for a corner.

The final fifteen minutes saw the Vixens continue to pile on the pressure, with a flying header from Olivia Fergusson and a long range shot from Hemp among the notable chances.

However, the best chance to make it three came on 90 minutes, when a Matthews shot from a corner hit the bar.

Bristol City Women: Leach, Matthews, Kerkdijk, Arthur, Daniels, Fergusson, Hemp, Allen (Humphreys 67), Biesmans, Turner, Woolley (Palmer 77). Sub not used: Watson, Brown, Goodard.
