Marlborough Ladies return from mid-season break to win 15-0
Lavington Ladies 0 Marlborough Town Ladies 15
After a couple weeks’ break, Marlborough jumped back into it with their final game of the year and a triumphant win of 15-nil against Lavington.
Despite the dreary weather, it's a great end to the year and a real success for everyone on the team.
Not only do they keep an important clean sheet through faultless discipline from the goalies and defenders, but they gain some much-needed confidence through great teamwork creating a multitude of goals. Coming from defenders up to the strikers, they started the goals early on.
It was only 18 seconds in when Emily Sparkes popped the ball into the back of the net from a great run and cross from Kerry Ash.
With the goal under their belt and confidence on their side, Marlborough began to settle into the Lavington half and work the ball around.
The goals became constant. There were six in the first half and nine in the second. Five came from Ffion Williams, four from Emily Sparkes, two from Emma Brown, two from Lucy Bush, one from Aimee Rayner and one from Kerry Ash.
Everyone played their part but it was especially great to get some new names on the score sheet. Emily, Emma, Lucy and Aimee all had their first goals of the season. It was a great relief for some and an opportunity to gain the confidence and experience to take into the next year.
Marlborough were thrilled to be finishing 2015 on the high of a well deserved win.
