Penrith AFC Ladies Vs Morecambe Ladies Dev Pre Season Friendly Match Report 04/09/2016


Morecambe Ladies Reserves 1 - 2 Penrith AFC Ladies 

Goals: Nat x2

Penrith made a short journey down the M6 to play their final friendly of the season against Morecambe Reserves. The team included 6 U18's and 2 of them were making their ladies debut. Penrith started the game in great spirit; taking a hold of the game early doors. We had lots of possession and had some clear chances but it looked as though it was not going to be our day. Unfortunately, we lost possession in the middle of the park, and Morecambe counteracted on our mistake and went in to the break with a 1 goal lead.


Second half we continued to get the ball down where we played some excellent football. There was half an hour left and once again Penrith dominated play, and thankfully, through some slick and intricate passing and moving from Chez, Tasha and Nat we made it all square. The ladies still continued to battle hard and showed sheer determination and commitment to win the game.

On the 83rd minute, Sophie intercepted the ball from Morecambe's winger, played it to Ruth H in the middle of the pitch, who sent a ball over their back four and Nat lobbed the goal keeper from the edge of the box.
