TyneMet’s show leaves Chater in seventh heaven

The Chronicle - - Grassroots Women’s Football -

TYNEMET con­vinc­ingly won a league/cup dou­ble-header to go into the quar­ters of the ECFA Premier Cup - and move up in to sec­ond in the ECFA Premier League.

The North Ty­nesiders dom­i­nated pos­ses­sion early on, Katie Barker un­lucky not to score - hit­ting the bar and hav­ing a shot tipped around the post.

It was not long be­fore the pres­sure from the home side paid off, Barker be­ing dragged down in the box and then blast­ing the re­sult­ing penalty home.

The sec­ond goal came from great play as TyneMet switched play from right to left, find­ing Ka­cie El­son un­marked as she slot­ted it home.

At this point TyneMet were look­ing com­fort­able, con­trol­ling the game and not al­low­ing Balby Carr any op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate chances.

An­nece Legg then got on the score­sheet, pick­ing the ball up 20 yards out and fir­ing it home with the aid of a de­flec­tion. Shelly Brog­den added a fourth be­fore half-time, notch­ing di­rectly from a cor­ner.

The sec­ond pe­riod started scrap­pily as Balby Carr looked to get back in to the game.

Their ad­di­tional pres­sure left space in be­hind as Barker latched on to a through ball, round­ing the goal­keeper for her sec­ond goal of the game.

TyneMet were then awarded their sec­ond penalty, Kira Whit­tle slot­ting home for her first goal of the sea­son.

The game was rounded off with Court­ney Dack’s finish.

Carl Chater, head coach of NESA women’s foot­ball, said: “In our big­gest game so far this sea­son we have re­ally turned it on.

“I could not be hap­pier with the per­for­mance.”
