Owls Ladies Bag First Win

Owls Ladies Bag First Win

Wednesday Ladies FC picked up their first victory of the new season in emphatic style with a thumping 4-2 victory over their Curzon Ashton counterparts on Sunday afternoon.

The Owls had been unfortunate in their opening four matches but made a bright start in the clash with Curzon and broke the deadlock when Sarah Danby produced a composed finish to net her second of the season so far.

Wednesday pushed to double their lead only to be met by a stubborn defence from their opponents.

And they were hit with a leveller from Curzon in first-half injury time with a well struck effort which gave Owls stopper Danni Maslin no chance.

Despite the set-back, Wednesday started the second half in the same manner as the first, playing the more attacking football and carving out the best chances in front of goal but failing to add the final touch.

That was until Rachel Skeemer's well-struck shot gave the Owls the lead for the second time in the match, and it was what they deserved.

Laura Windle's goal looked to have been enough for Wednesday, the well-worked effort giving them a two-goal cushion, and Beth Gingell put the icing on the cake with the fourth to put the game to bed.

The visitors responded with what was a consolation strike, but it wasn't enough to dent Wednesday's impressive afternoon.

Assistant Manager Liam Kelly said: 'It's been a long time coming but we finally have the first win of the season, which is most pleasing for everyone at the club.

'The players stepped up to the mark today, in terms of commitment, quality, desire and having that winning mentality.

'We've picked up four points in the last seven days and as much as we would have preferred more, we will take them and look to move forward. The players showed some good evidence of the kind of football they can play if they believe in themselves and everyone at the club is proud of them all. '

Wednesday will have been even more eager to bag their first three points against Curzon, given they take a break from league action next week to take on Everton in the cup.
