Great Scott fires team to win

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

RE­BECCA Scott scored a first goal in more than two years as Den­ham Ladies re­serves beat MK Dons at The Den on Sun­day.

Scott, back from long-term in­jury, struck in a 4-1 win for the hosts, which stretched their un­beaten run to four matches.

Elishia Allen hit a brace and Rachel Black­burn bagged her first of the sea­son di­rect from a cor­ner, while the team sported pop­pies and ob­served a two-minute Re­mem­brance Day si­lence.

But the first XI’s FA Cup dreams are over af­ter they bowed out 4-2 at AFC Wim­ble­don. The girls were 4-0 down be­fore a late rally sparked by Chon­tele Lawrence’s dou­ble, and dur­ing which they struck the bar. More cup ac­tion awaits on Sun­day when Den­ham take on Charl­ton Ladies, from the league above, in the County Cup. There was bet­ter news for the un­der 13s who saw off St Al­bans 2-0 at The Den. Mia Al­men­dros and Tara Jhawer scored while Isabelle Gar­raway took player of the match honours.

The U11 Wild­cats beat Mose­ley Ju­niors 3-0 thanks to goals from El­lie Trigg and Jess Polton and an own goal that came from a Madi­son Perry shot. Ruby McCul­loch was player of the match.

The U16s were edged out 2-1 at neigh­bours QPR. Yas­min Gar­cia gave Den­ham a half-time ad­van­tage, but the hosts were the stronger af­ter the break.
