BRIDGWATER Town Ladies retained their spot at the top of the league with this hard earned 1-0 victory at Wick, near Bristol.
Playing up the slope against the wind in the first half, Town dealt well with all that Downend threw at them and went close to opening the scoring several times, with Rosie Williams going the closest.
Keeper, Faye Edwards, also made a terrific triple save to keep the game goalless at half time.
Town started well in the second period, with Anusia Rourke, Daisy Goldsmith and Gabby Coles all going close. Coles was then presented with a chance in front of goal, which she somehow put wide of the post.
However, midway through the half Town eventually took the lead. A through ball inside the left back by Helen Ash set Holly Cox free and she took the ball on before crashing a terrific drive across the Downend keeper and into the far corner of the net.
The rest of the half was even with Downend pressing for an equalizer but The Town ladies held firm, to record their fourth win in five games.
Next week sees the Ladies in action in the FA Women's Cup.
They are at home to St Nicholas at Fairfax Park with a 2pm kick off.
Please come down and give the Ladies your support in what will prove to be a tough match.
