LATEST ON THE BLUES
AMLWCH Town are top of the North Wales Women’s Football League on goal difference after last Sunday’s 6-0 hammering of bottom side Point.
The opening goal arrived on 21 minutes when Chloe Taylor’s burst through the middle of the visiting defence saw the midfielder slot home her first goal for the club.
Seven minutes later it was 2-0 as Sara Furlong also broke her duck for the club with an effort on the edge of the area that was tucked into the bottom corner.
On 34 minutes it was 3-0 as Point cleared an Amlwch set-piece only as far as Lexi Musgrave who turned on the edge of the box to lob the ball over visiting keeper Sara Friend.
Four minutes later saw Friend’s game came to a premature end as she was dismissed for bringing down Shannon Thomas on the edge of the area leaving the match official no option but to show the red card as the last defender.
With replacement keeper Hollie Groves’ taking over between the sticks, one of her first tasks was to pick the ball out of the net in the 41st minute.
A ball over the defence was controlled perfectly by Thomas, who calmly fired past the advancing stand-in for what was also her first goal for the club and with it giving the Blues a 4-0 advantage at the break.
The second half was only six minutes old when Cerys Gadd joined the scorers’ list, chipping the ball over Groves from to make it 5-0.
With a five-goal advantage in Amlwch’s favour, manager Andrew Wright took the opportunity to ring the changes with all substitutes slowly introduced into the fray.
One of them, Charlotte Webb, almost had an immediate impact only to see her effort cannon off the woodwork.
The final goal of the game came with six minutes remaining when an Amlwch throw-in reached Katie Lewtas, who squared the ball to Musgrave to rifle home her second net-finder of the afternoon.
