Alti Swifts Girls U14’s 2 - Hayfield Girls U14’s 4
Hayfield travelled to Altrincham this week and came away with a well earned 4-2 League victory. In their first attack, Georgia Bull found Alice Rayson on the right wing and a strong run ended with her cutting in and poking the ball past the Swifts keeper. Hayfield continued to attack and Martine Grocott found Sophie Rayson whose shot came back off the underside of the bar – where was the goal-line technology? The two soon made amends when Sophie Rayson pulled the ball back across goal from the right for man-of-the-match Martine Grocott to tap into an empty net – half time 2-0. The second half started with Hayfield having two corners which caused problems in the Swifts penalty area. Amy Vandermotten then found herself out on the right wing and her strong cross could only be parried by the Swifts keeper for Megan Pritchard to tuck home. The Swifts then rallied with two goals setting a frantic final 10 minutes. The decisive break came when Sophie Rayson found twin sister Alice who duly beat the keeper with a fine shot into the top corner for a final 4-2 scoreline. Martha Kelly, Mel Kennedy and Megan Woods all had fine games in the Hayfield defence.
