Penrith AFC Ladies Vs Leigh RMI Ladies Match Report 25/09/2016
Penrith AFC Ladies 6 – 1 Leigh RMI Ladies
Leigh started the day in 2nd place in the league table after 3 wins on the bounce however it was Penrith who started the game in barnstorming fashion. They totally blitzed Leigh and raced to a 4-0 lead in the opening 22 mins with goals from Hannah Coulthard, Tasha Scott, Charlotte Smith and a first ever goal for full back Chloe Grisedale.
A long injury delay saw the Leigh keeper leave the pitch and this seemed to knock Penrith out of their stride. The game turned much more scrappy but Penrith did manage to extend their lead before half time when Tasha Scott scrambled home her 2nd goal.
Penrith huffed and puffed in the 2nd half but never really reached the levels of the first half. The did score a further goal through Heather Fawkes as the final score ended 6-1.
Penrith: Jones(Lawson), J. Williams, Grisedale, C.Smith, Lorenzi, P.Williams(Fawkes), Scott, Coulthard, Broad(Nutter), Hopton, S.Smith.
