Championship Week 10
Blackburn Ladies vs Crystal Palace Women
FORTE were heavily represented in this great game with 3 of our players involved. Aimee Everett and in form Farrow started for Palace whilst Annabel Blanchard featured for Blackburn in her influential number 10 role. The Eagles cored first but Blanchard nearly equalised after her powerful volley narrowly went wide. Palace doubled their lead but it was quickly halved when Annabel poked the ball through the keepers legs but this wasn’t enough as The Eagles won 2-1 moving hem up to third place whilst The Rovers drop to 10th place.
Sheffield United Ladies vs Lewes Ladies
Zoe Cross started for Lewes in the midfield as they strolled to a 3-1 win over Sheffield. Zoe looked dominant from her central role and pushed her team to another 3 points. The win sees Lewes jump up to 6th place after 2 wins in a row.
Watford Women vs Bristol City Women
Lia Cataldo started for Bristol City at left back whilst skipper Aimee Palmer returned to the bench following her recovery from an injury. Bristol scored 2 early goals and Lia nearly provided the assist for the third, but the keeper just about did enough to make a save. However, Bristol City dominate the game and ended up winning 3-0 after Palmer came on.
