Brace for Anna Hunt as Blossomfield move up to third

SOLIHULL Blossomfield Ladies picked up a well-earned three points on the road at Boots Ladies on Saturday.

The visitors started tentatively and the first half saw a lot of Boots pressure with a resilient defensive display from the visiting team.

Bloss shifted tactically in the second half and the game came to light as they exerted significant attacking pressure and a series of consecutive short corners, which was rewarded with an Anna Hunt strike.

Bloss continued to dominate the play and again a short corner routine saw Hunt creatively score her second of the match.

A lack of concentration with 60 seconds to go allowed Boots to score a late goal and set up a tense finale but it proved to be a consolation as Bloss held out for the winning to move up to third in the league table.

Bloss are in action again this Saturday when they host Tamworth who lie above them in the league.

Elsewhere, Blossomfield Badgers put up a brave fight but lost out 4-3 at home to West Bromwich Badgers.

West Bromwich started quickly by scoring twice in the first ten minutes and some brilliant keeping from Logan Robertson kept the scoreline at 2-0.

However, West Bromwich used their momentum to then score two fairly identical goals before half time.

Just before the half-time whistle however, good build up play from Blossomfield allowed Cameron Mowat to slip the ball through the West Bromwich defense and finish at the near post.

Bloss started the second half strongly and they were soon rewarded with a goal from Curtis Breillant finishing at the near post.

Bloss were then unlucky as Harry Mowat had a controversial disallowed goal but not deterred Bloss soon got another goal as Jodie Price finished from Yusuf Skinner’s run but they couldn’t find another goal and the score ended 3-4.
