Ascot United Ladies 10 – 1 Warsash Wasps

#WeAreAscot

Ascot United Ladies are up and running in the Southern Regions Women’s Football League after a comprehensive win over Warsash Wasps on Sunday afternoon. Darrel Evans’ side quickly recovered from going a goal down to run out 10-1 winners, taking their first three points of the season after defeat last weekend.

Freya Johnson scored to pull her side level in the sixth minute, barely a minute after Wasps had taken the lead, and would eventually bag a hat-trick.

Amy Woollard made it 2-1 in the 8th minute before Dom Carrington (21’), and both Johnson (28’) and Woollard (32’) added to their own tallies to make it 5-1 just after the half-hour mark. However, the visitors weren’t helped when they lost a player with a shoulder injury early-on, and after she had departed for hospital they were down to the bare bones as a couple of players went down with cramp.

Carrington’s cross-shot found its way in via the ’keeper’s hand to give Ascot a 6-1 lead at half time, and after Evans changed the shape in the second half his side relaxed and knocked the ball around with more confidence.

Laura Spark had a solid game in defence, mopping up most of what Warsash could muster, although credit goes to the visitors who plugged away in the second half only to be restricted mainly to long-range efforts, which Lisa Phillips confidently dealt with.

After Johnson had completed her hat-trick, impressive winger Georgia Bowers found the net with an audacious cross-shot to make it 8-1, before substitute Nicole Brown bagged a late brace – although she might have had two more – had it not been for a couple of good saves from the overworked visiting ’keeper.

The Ladies travel to Abingdon United next Sunday (2pm). Ascot United also wish a speedy recovery to the Warsash player making an unwanted trip to Frimley Park Hospital.
