Five goals in second half see Marlborough Ladies fall to top-of-table Swindon team
Marlborough began the new year with a difficult battle against top of the league, Swindon Town Development on Sunday.
It was a great game of football but another loss for Marlborough with a final score of 5 nil.
Marlborough started strong; they worked hard to win everything and made it difficult for Swindon to develop any long-term possession. It was physical and fast paced but Marlborough kept their mind on the game.
Abbi Demir showed great spirit in central midfield and played some good passes to Kerry Ash and Dani Hull, who worked tirelessly up and down the wings. The defence was consistent and the strikers worked hard to win every ball.
Marlborough went into the half with a nil nil draw.
Their spirits were high but the depth and talent of the Swindon team was eventually revealed when their patience and fitness came into play in the second half.
Despite countless saves from goalie, Robyn Hill, Marlborough could not keep Swindon from scoring.
They continued to work hard but let in five goals by the end of the game. It was a disappointing result but ultimately a well played game and a good start to 2017.
