Kings Heath Badgers 1-5 Solihull Blossomfield Badgers</b>

Blossomfield Badgers visited Kings Heath in a competitive and interesting match and it was the hosts who dominated the start with attack after attack.

However, it was Bloss who took the lead from a short corner and Cameron Mowat got a good touch from a Rhianna Robertson’s pass to put Bloss ahead.

A few minutes later Yusuf Skinner put the ball across for Harry Mowat to tap in for a 2-0 half time lead.

Bloss were again under pressure from Kings Heath in the second half and a magnificent reverse stick strike gave Kings Heath a goal that brought them back into the match. However, a mistake at the halfway line gave Cameron Mowat the opportunity to drive forward and score an excellent individual goal.

Elis Harrison then followed up with a similar excellent run for the fourth goal for a 4-1 lead.

Blossomfield continued to exert pressure and towards the end of the match Harrison then sent a great ball across the top of the D to let Player of the Match Cameron Mowat complete a hat-trick to give Bloss a 5-1 victory.

Towcester Ladies Masters 3-4 Solihull Blossomfield Ladies Masters

Bloss travelled away in the first round of the Masters Trophy to face a notoriously strong Towcester side.

The visitors started really strongly, demonstrating excellent passing throughout the midfield with Nicky Horton, Jen Parkes and player of the match Anna Wellings moving the ball well and creating several early chances for Den Fountain up front.

Despite Bloss dominating the game Towcester scored two goals against the flow of play. However within seconds Bloss responded with a well deserved goal from a skillful lob over the keeper from Fountain.

After another period of dominating passing play from Bloss, Fountain again found the back of the net after Kate Digby’s pace and penetrating cross proved too much for the Towcester defence.

Bloss came out fighting after half time and were soon 3-2 up after Julie Spence deflected a powerful Anna Wellings strike from the top of the circle.

Towcester did draw even but Bloss secured a well deserved 4-3 victory after another clinically worked penalty corner was hammered home by Nicky Horton in the dying minutes of the match.

Beeston Ladies 3s 1-0 Solihull Blossomfield Ladies 1s
