Cardinals and Wildcats claim victories

Cardinals and Wildcats chalked up wins in the two games played in the Women’s ‘B’ division at the National Sports Centre at the weekend.

A revitalised Cardinals came out 5-0 winners against Swallows thanks to an all round team effort.

Denise Downey and Pier Simons scored in the first half to give them a two-goal lead at the half, and closed the game out after the interval with three further goals from Caroline Gledhill, Candy Foggo and Rebecca DeAlliie.

Wildcats also chalked up a 3-0 win three different goalscorers.

It was a close game until Susanna Almeida was finally able to slip the ball past the goalkeeper to give Wildcats the lead.

Some crucial defending from Cara Johnson, Kristin Alexander and Sue Ward proved exasperating for Wildcats who, despite being awarded a further 17 short corners throughout match, were unable to convert any of them.

Five minutes into the second half, Ryce Trott used her extraordinary speed to penetrate the Ravens defence and net her side’s second goal.

Eva Dillas rounded out the scoring when she converted a penalty flick awarded late in the second half.

Despite some valiant attempts on goal by Amber Port and Katie Tester, Ravens were unable to find the back of the net.
