FA Women's National League Cup: Bournemouth 2-0 Bridgwater United

BRIDGWATER United Women have been knocked out of the FA Women's National League Cup by AFC Bournemouth.

Despite the defeat, the Robins put in a much improved performance from last time out and there are positives to take going forward.

The result means Bridgwater now enter the FA Women's National League Plate competition.

In the match, the home side were in control early on and created a number of chances inside the first 20 minutes.

Bridgwater's keeper Ellie Mitchell was equal to the chances though as she made at least three strong saves to keep the scores level.

The first half highlighted the strength in the Bridgwater back line in fairness as Bournemouth were in control but unable to break the deadlock.

That would change partway through the second half though as in the 74th minute the hosts eventually took the lead.

Then in the 85th minute, the lead was doubled as the pressure Bournemouth put on Bridgwater finally paid.

All in all a tough result to take after all the hard work put in by the defence but an improved performance nonetheless.

Up next for the Robins is the same fixture against Bournemouth away from home, however this time it is in the league. 

Kick off is 2pm on Sunday, September 3.
