Half-time talk does the trick for United
A HALF-time rollocking did the trick as Chesham United Ladies turned on the style in the second half to hammer Fleet 6-2 on Sunday.
Gemma Fraser and Katie Squire had given the hosts a two-goal cushion, but poor defending allowed Fleet to draw level before Fraser struck again to at least soften the carpeting. Squire added her second, her 20th of the season, to settle the nerves after the break, before Dawne Campbell bundled home a Kat Bowers free kick to seal the victory, but Chesham saved the best for last as a delightful move involving Livvi Harris and Kirsty Imrie was finished by Vicky Smyth.
The U18s went down 4-3 to a lastminute Aylesbury winner, despite two goals from player of the match Sarah Hazel and another from Sarah Jackson, while the U13s became the first side to take a point off MK City this season in a goalless draw.
A brace from star player Lidia Niedertubbesing-Lopez, plus further strikes from Bex Carter and Hannah Cowley, saw the U15 Clarets win 4-2 at Oxford City, despite having just the bare 11 available, but the U15 Blues went down 10-2 at Risborough (Jodie Pedder, Chloe Turner).
Player of the match Mia Nieboer hit a hat-trick as the U12s beat Winslow 5-1, with Ella Boothroyd bagging the other two, while Lily Goff was also celebrating a hat-trick as the U9s beat Penn & Tylers.
