Marlborough Ladies end regular season with eighth win in a row
Marlborough Town Ladies 2 Warminster Sky Blue 1
After seven wins in a row, Marlborough were keen to finish their regular season games on Sunday with an eighth win at home.
It only took a minute before they were on the attack. Alex Sawyer ran onto a great ball from Ffion Williams. She controlled the ball well and managed to get a shot beyond the keeper's reach but the ball hit the post and bounced into the goal mouth. Kirsty Miles ran through the defence and popped it into the back of the net to bring Marlborough into an early and well-deserved lead.
They continued to play a good attacking game but a slip in concentration allowed a free kick to Warminster in a dangerous area. Going straight for goal, Warminster pounded the ball beyond the wall and the keeper and into the top corner of the goal. 1-1 and a frustrating set back.
But Marlborough went straight back into the attack.
Kirsty and Chloe Buller both had some great shots on goal but were denied by the Warminster keeper who was solid. It was only through great perseverance that Marlborough were able to get back into the game properly. Kirsty gained possession inside the box and struck her foot through the ball for an amazing goal and a 2-1 lead.
For the rest of the half, Marlborough just had to keep composure. They defended well and Alana Turner was forced to make some great saves.
They kept the game at a consistent tempo for the remainder of the game. Possession was quite evenly matched but Marlborough kept their discipline and came out of the game with their eighth win in a row.
The result was a good one and will only help to spur them on for their upcoming chance in the cup for the semi-final against Mangotsfield.
