Women’s FA cup Qualifier

Stone-Dominoes-LogoStone dominoes 3 – Bilbrook lfc 4

The dominoes faced opposition one league above however on the pitch there was no difference. Both teams battled hard all over the field creating chances for both sides. Striker Vikki Garner had to be substituted due to injury which gave way for Laura Baskerville to slot in up top with Mollie Prime. Bilbrook took the lead 30mins in and again before half time.

Second half saw Stone change formation to 4-3-3 and began to create more chances, Striker Mollie Prime was heavily marked throughout the game however was again on the scoresheet after two fantastic goals. The first one making the score 2-1, however Bilbrook replied straight away with 2 goals after the defence were caught napping. With the change in formation, saw more of an attacking stance from Stone giving Mollie Prime her second goal. The team also looked dangerous in the air with the third goal coming from a corner which central defender Hayley Mason headed home. The last 10 minutes of the game was all Stone Dominoes pressure to score, and Bilbrook panic under pressure, mistimed challenges on the edge of the box from the Bilbrook defence wen un-noticed by the referee and he blew for full time just as Stone had a corner awarded. Lydia Bennion came close with an equaliser but it wasnt to be.
