MATCH REPORT: Yeovil vs Hounslow

Yeovil Town Women kit started the second half of their FA Women’s National League Campaign on Sunday with a dominating 8-0 win over Hounslow Women.

Following a delayed kick off, Yeovil enjoyed early possession as Hounslow sat deep. Early chances for the game’s opener came through Meesha Dudley-Jones and Sarah Wiltshire but their strikes were well matched by Caoimhe O’Reilly in the Hounslow goal.

Yeovil looked to be set to break the deadlock as Strippel slipped an excellent through ball to the on running Kelly Aldridge. Free through on goal Aldridge found herself felled outside the box. As the match official consulted his assistant the crowd and both technically areas were confused to not see any card at all. The resulting free kick was straight at the wall.

The home side did get an opener as a Charlotte Buxton delivery was followed in by Sarah Wiltshire to touch home. The lad then double 2 minutes later as Katie Jones drove out of defence to find the run of Meesha Dudley-Jones who neatly turned as she collected the ball before cooly finishing.

Following the referee’s advantage from Hounslow being offside Yeovil countered as Dudley-Jones was released down the line and found Sarah Wiltshire. Wiltshire’s eventual shot after she neatly created space for herself looped over the ‘keeper via a deflection.

Hounslow pushed to trouble the Yeovil defence but were no match for Annie Heatherson and Thierry-Jo Gauvain at the back.

Annie Heatherson then calmly dispatched a penalty right before half-time.
