Worcestershire League Division One
BADSEY LADIES finished the first half of their league campaign with a resounding win at Evesham High School on Saturday that restored their faith in their ability after the heartbreak of the last few games.
The home side were in control right from the beginning, with their passing and movement just too quick for the young visiting team.
They made the breakthrough with a typically fast flowing move that ended with Shelly Banner sweeping the ball into the net.
The Vale girls continued to apply the pressure, making it very difficult for Stourport to get the ball out of defence, and it was not long before they extended their lead when Karen Robinson was quickest on to a loose ball at a short corner to slot into the net.
Player of the match Sarah Rickey scored a fabulous third goal when she intercepted a ball out from defence and powered into the circle to unleash an unstoppable shot past the stranded keeper.
At the other end, Stourport started to come into the game a little, but the Badsey defence were equal to the task as they cleared their lines well when needed.
In the second half the game got a little bit ragged, which allowed Stourport more chances on the ball, but Badsey remained in control.
They had a goal disallowed for a foot and several other chances before Robinson finished things off when she latched on to a great ball from Kay Amphlett and beat the keeper with a great shot.
Badsey will play their annual Christmas mixed game on Sunday before putting their feet up for a well deserved break.
