Division One South West: Moneyfields 8-0 Bridgwater United

BRIDGWATER United Women suffered a big defeat on Sunday (October 29) away from home against Moneyfields.

In the match played in the FA Women's National League Division One South West, Moneyfields came out on top 8-0.

The defeat sees Bridgwater drop to seventh place in the league table while Moneyfields move up to fourth.

From start to finish the hosts were on top in this match and despite creating a handful of chances, Bridgwater were a long way off the mark.

Defensively some simple mistakes led to chances and ultimately Moneyfields made the most of them to score eight goals.

The home side took the lead after 13 minutes with a nice strike from Kau’inohea Taylor.

Bridgwater were able to create some opportunities themselves after the opening goal, as Ellie Bishop, Keely Banfield and Chloe Snook all taking shots.

However the bulk of the work was being done by keeper Ellie Mitchell who kept Bridgwater in touching reach with a number of quality saves.

Moneyfields doubled the lead in the 37th minute when Gemma Simmonds scored perhaps the goal of the game to continue her run of scoring.

Then, moments before the half time whistle, it was 3-0, when the home side scored an all important third goal through captain Charley Wilson-Wilton.

In the second half it went from bad to worse for Bridgwater as Moneyfields ran in five more goals.

The first came soon after through Kau’inohea Taylor’s second of the match, assisted by Emma Moody.

From there, Bridgwater struggled to keep pace with the Moneyfields attack and Kirsty Pearce scored after a goal mouth scramble to make it 5-0.

Wilson-Wilton got her second and Moneyfields sixth and then Kim Fuller made it 7-0 shortly after with a great header.

Just before the final whistle, Bekah Tonks scores to make it 8-0 and wrap up the scoring. And in fairness, a great win for Moneyfields.

After the whistle sounded, Chloe Snook received a red card from the referee.

All in all a tough weekend for the Bridgwater United Women against an in-form Moneyfields side.

Up next for Bridgwater is another away fixture, this time against Southampton Women on Sunday, November 5, for a 2pm kick off.

They will be looking to bounce back with a win but it will be another tough match taking on a Southampton side that has been struggling for form themselves of late.
