Chel­tenham bounce back with away win

Gloucestershire Echo - - FOOTBALL -

» CHEL­TENHAM Town Ladies shrugged off last week’s cup dis­ap­point­ment with an im­pres­sive 1-0 win at Buck­land Ath­letic.

The home side looked threat­en­ing in the early stages, play­ing most of the foot­ball in the Chel­tenham half but they were lim­ited to break away chances or shots from distance.

The se­cond half started much like the first half had, with Buck­land start­ing quickly and Chel­tenham be­ing forced into de­fend­ing.

Af­ter weath­er­ing a small storm, which saw Buck­land win a cou­ple of cor­ners, Chel­tenham scored the only goal of the game.

Abby Be­van broke away as Buck­land had thrown bod­ies for­ward, and her cross found its way to winger Sarah King and the for­mer Swin­don young­ster picked her shot per­fectly, slot­ting the shot back across the goal and in off the post.

Buck­land fought back strongly call­ing Alyta Nor­man into ac­tion in the Chel­tenham goal.

Sarah Stacey also blazed the best chance of the game, over the bar from a cou­ple of yards out but Chel­tenham held out.
