Updated: 5:49 pm, Sep 30, 2015

IT WAS a perfect start for Solihull Blossomfield ladies’ first team as they recorded an opening day 3-0 victory at home to Tamworth.

Bloss dominated possession from the start and created a number of chances before the first goal game thanks to a well worked short corner routine with Anna Wellings slotting the ball past the keeper into the bottom left corner.

The hosts scored a second before half-time after some close, intricate work with Claire Parsons and Louise Davis resulted in the latter scoring from open play.

Bloss continued their domination in the second half and scored a third when Kate Digby used her pace on the right wing and carried the ball into the D. She then passed to Ellen Bleumer who converted past the keeper to wrap up a comfortable 3-0 victory.

The ladies’ second team continued their league campaign this week but lost out 2-1 at home to Leamington.

Bloss started the game strongly and converted a short corner with Claire Parsons’ shot taking a deflection into the top of the goal.

Leamington evened the score just before half time with a quick break away and despite Bloss having most of the possession in the second half with numerous chances and short corners, they were unable to convert and Leamington got a winning goal in open play.

The club’s third team were also in action at the weekend and tasted a narrow 1-0 defeat against Stratford’s third team.

Bloss started well putting early pressure on the Stratford defence, however, it was Stratford who broke through in numbers and took the lead after 20 minutes with a well struck shot from the top of the D.

After half time Stratford dominated, but the Bloss defence held strong. In the final 5 minutes, Bloss surged through in numbers but failed to capitalise on the late pressure.
