Yeovil and Sherborne Ladies 1st XI entertained top of the league Bournemouth at the Rec this Saturday, in their top of the table clash.  It was a fast paced game from the off with Bournemouth quickly gaining the upper hand; the visitors were 0 – 3 within the first 20 minutes!  Y&S had their chances at the other end but Bournemouth’s defence were putting up a stern fight and would not let the home side in.  Y&S continued to battle hard and first on the score sheet for the home side was Pippa Parker who was free on the left post when a slip from Sadie Watson found her and she fired home.  They went in to the half time break 1-3 down but spirits were high and opportunities were being made across the pitch. 
 
Coming out for the second half, Bournemouth were lucky to get a further goal within a minute of the restart. Disappointed but undeterred Y&S pressed on and, unlike their fortune of last week, just could not find a way through.  They pressed and switched play until once again Sadie Watson turned provider for the goal when she connected well with Georgie Belt who had room on the left had post to fire home.  With the belief in their hearts the Y&S ladies worked hard and kept believing they could find that gap, but as the minutes ticked down it was not to be their day.  Y&S had to settle for their 2 great goals and some awesome valiant defending by everyone.  Players’ Player was awarded to Debs Gemmell.
