Fraser again among the goals for United

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ADVERTISER & EXAMINER -


Sarah Hazell kept her short af­ter a strong per­for­mance the pre­vi­ous week­end and on 18 min­utes, the 18-year-old fin­ished bril­liantly vol­ley­ing in in a dif­fi­cult chance from a Gemma Fraser cross af­ter great work from wing-back Paula Lam­bert.

Within five min­utes, City were level terms as Che­sham strug­gled to keep their shape at the back. Visitors United though, saw Gemma Fraser on fire up­front as she raced on to a Delves through-ball and slot­ted home.

When Ni­amh Eu­man stole the ball in the at­tack­ing third, the un­der-18s cap­tain had the con­fi­dence to drive into the box and fin­ish for 3-1.

City then drove straight through the visitors de­fence and slot­ted home a sec­ond. Tash Smith then found Fraser and al­though her ini­tial shot was saved, the striker was first to re­act, smash­ing in the re­bound.

City pegged an- other back on 35 min­utes as Har­ris sliced a clear­ance which had enough spin to squeeze in at the far post.

And within 15 min­utes of the restart, Ox­ford had lev­elled.

Che­sham cap­tain Dawne Camp­bell’s ex­pe­ri­ence fi­nally set­tled the back line as Nat Adams was brought into the ac­tion and cov­ered well in de­fence.

On 70 min­utes, Smith whipped in a ball just be­hind Fraser who man­aged to ad­just and squeeze her shot into the cor­ner for 5-4.

This week­end, Che­sham Ladies play in the first round of the Women’s FA Cup against New Lon­don Lionesses (ko 1pm). Che­sham U18s had a solid vic­tory in the cup, beat­ing Cren­don 8-0. Lidia Nieder­tubbesingLopez net­ted five and Chloe Turner, Eu­man and Aoife Han­ling also scored. The U16s lost 8-3 at lead­ers Kidling­ton.
