THE UNBEATEN run continues for Solihull Blossomfield Ladies as they beat Boot Ladies 2-1.

Starting the stronger of the two teams, Bloss dominated possession and the tempo of the game in the first half.

And despite not taking advantage of a number of short corners, the breakthrough eventually came off a well executed straight strike by Vicki Shuter.

The visitors exerted pressure after falling behind and this was rewarded with a clinically taken short corner to draw them level.

Bloss reacted quickly with Julie Spence winning the ball on the left, intricately passing with Nicky Horton, before Julie scored from open play past a strong Boots keeper.

The match was a game of two halves and after the break both teams lost some structure and control of the game with some scrappy passages of play but the scoreline remained 2-1 at the final whistle.

The club’s third team drew 0-0 with Berkswell & Balsall Common Ladies.

It was clear from the start that the teams were very evenly matched and hungry for the game.

Bloss earned themselves a short corner shortly before half-time which was deflected by the opposition and left the scoreline 0-0 at the break.

After an inspirational team talk from captain Caron Ninnis, Bloss came out fighting in the second half.

The defence guarded the goal well and allowed the midfield to counter attack, moving the ball superbly around the middle, earning Rhianna Robertson player of the match.

But despite winning more short corners, Bloss were unable to capitalise and the scoreline ended goalless.
