Southport Shoreline Ladies 0 – Stone Dominoes 4
Stone Dominoes ladies travelled to Liverpool for their 4th pre-season friendly against Lancashire County League side Southport Shoreline Ladies FC. Playing in three thirds again, Stone were able to change the formation each third and looked at playing players in different positions in preparation for their FA cup game on 6th September. Starting with a 4-3-3 formation the Dominoes pressed from the front and played some quality football giving chances on goal for Nat Price and Mollie Prime. The first goal came from a quality Kerry McCourt corner where an unmarked Lauren Ward was able to direct her header into the back of the net. End of first third 0-1 to Stone.
Second half saw a 4-4-2 formation which also proved hard for the Shoreline defence. The girls played some great football keeping it simple and playing around the Shoreline players much to their frustration. Striker Jules Kendrick linked up well with the midfield giving shooting opportunities for Amy Thompson and Siobhan Haynes however nothing troubled the keeper too much. After some great link up play in defence, a ball came to Mollie Prime to run onto, with the Shoreline keeper off her line, Prime calmly tapped the ball over the keepers head and into the back of the net. Soon after Hayley Mason came up for a corner and headed but only for the keeper to parry back into the penalty area, Mason reacted quickly and took advantage of the slow Shoreline defence taking the Dominoes third goal after a goalmouth scramble. End of second third 0-3
The last third saw the Dominoes play 3-5-2 formation, Mollie Prime scored her second of the game and Stones fourth after beating two defenders on the left wing then placing the ball in the left hand corner. After this, Shoreline didn’t do too much to trouble the solid Stone defence and with the possession going mostly Stones way it gave plenty of opportunities for the central defenders to get on the ball and make the attackers chase the ball. All players again put in a quality performance and kept the ball moving which frustrated the Shoreline players. Final score 0-4.
The women’s FA cup draw was made this week and Stone Dominoes have been drawn against West Midland Regional league South team Malvern Town Ladies at home on Sunday 6th September 2pm kick off. Entry is free and we are inviting as many supporters along as possible.
