Girls Under 14 and Ladies Carnival Sunday Football Tournaments


Ross-on-Wye Girls Under 14 Football Team.

 


In an invitation girl's football match, a chairman's select eleven took on 'Lad's Club,'
Hereford at the Sports Centre on Sunday as part of Carnival 2004. Both teams were under 14 and played eleven a side on a full pitch. This was used as a warm up for the Herefordshire Girls Football league.

Ross ran out winners in a closely fought match which was played in a very friendly spirit. Trophies were presented to both teams by Wayne Powell of GMB and were donated by Ross Town ladies.

To coincide with Ross carnival, Ross town ladies played against Bredon ladies for a shield donated by Ross junior girls. Ross kicked off and won an early free kick, Jade Powell took it and the keeper saved. Sarah Smith nipped through Bredonís defence, her shot rebounded off the keeper and fell to Powell, again the keeper saved it. Hayley Layton made a break and whipped a cross in and Bredon cleared the danger then counter attacked, this time Ross successfully defended as Abi Williams made the clearance. Powell made another break and was foiled again by the keeper.

Sally Oliver was next to try a shot yet again a save by the keeper. Powell made a sharp turn on the edge of the box and hit towards the top corner and the keeper nudged it over the bar for a corner. Emma Walker won a free kick 25 yards out but Powell struck it over the bar. Walker also put one over the bar after a goalmouth scramble. Ross broke the deadlock on 40 minutes when Emily Colwell broke through and slotted past the keeper. Donna Hyndman tried a long shot that the keeper caught as the half time whistle went. Bredon started well forcing a couple of clearances from Louise Page. Ross recovered, Hyndman sent Colwell on her way but she put her shot over the bar. Ross went 2 - 0 up when Layton set up Powell for a close range shot. A few minutes later Smith added a third. Bredon break forward and win a corner then get a free kick just outside the box from which they hit the crossbar. Alana Feakins pushed forward and tried a shot that was safely gathered. Heidi Venables had her free kick saved and sent over a couple of crosses that nobody connected with and also fired a long shot wide just before the final whistle.
