AFC SUDBURY LADIES VS COPLESTON SPORTS COLLEGE LADIES.
The opening 15 minutes saw neither team have an overly decent chance although Sudbury did appear to have slightly more possession of the ball. Sudbury's first chance came from a corner which saw Katie Burrows hitting the post, AFC had another near chance shortly after when a quickly taken free kick from Golding found Seabrook whose shot was saved by the Copleston keeper.
Creative play from the AFC defence enabled Paige Leeder to take the ball down the ball before crossing the ball which was diverted into the net by Emma Holloway. AFC soon began to dominate the game after this and shortly after the restart Holloway netted her second goal. Sudbury added a third goal just before the break when a corner from Natalie Golding resulted in a goalmouth scramble which was finished when Charlie Warren's shot beat the keeper.
The opening of the second half saw AFC having to make some position switches due to injury. The AFC defence found themselves under pressure for the first part of the second half as Copleston had more possession but good teamwork from the defensive pairing of Natalie Curtin and Burrows kept the potential danger away. AFC got their fourth when a goal kick went straight to their player who headed it back into the goalmouth allowing Marie Seabrook to fire home. A clearance from Charlotte Golding saw Seabrook set up Sam Thomson for Sudbury's fifth. Seabrook made it six when defender Amy Barham played the ball down the left seeking out Seabrook who finished after a great solo effort. Good link up play between Burrows and Mia Bambury saw Seabrook completing her hat-trick and taking Sudbury's total to seven. This win takes AFC to second in the league behind Ipswich. Well done girls on a fantastic team performance on your first game for over two months. The ladies are at home again next week against Shotley Rose.
