With the school half term looming, the Ladies had to contend with visitors from Newquay and the remnants of Storm Brian for their fixture on Saturday. It seemed that Newquay definitely had the wind behind them at the start of the game, not that it was blowing in one direction particularly, and it was Yeovil and Sherborne’s defence that had to soak up all the pressure for the first fifteen minutes. The Ladies did this admirably before becoming creating the first goal.  Millie Stevens took a free hit from the left which went all the way around the back, via Libby Walters, Debs Gemmell and Phylli Cligg before releasing Sophie Cahill down the right. Cahill passed to Caitlin Waller who in turn found Georgie Belt in the circle and after her first shot was stopped she picked up the rebound and fired the ball home from 7 or so metres on the reverse stick.  That goal was just the belief that Y&S needed and before long Belt had made it 2-0 up. The team settled into their rhythm and held firm and solid towards the half time whistle.
Newquay did not let up through the second half and Y&S had to contend with further waves of pressure. On the break Y&S caught them unawares and this time, after some great work by Wendy Butcher, Hannah Bell and Kate Baker, it was Millie Walters who was to fire home at the far post to give Y&S a comfortable and strong 3-0 lead.  Y&S had to be on their guard as Newquay were determined not to be denied a goal for all their efforts and goalkeeper Becky Frater had to be on her twinkle toes as a flurry of shots and short corners came in from the Newquay attack.  The defence held them at bay!!
To put the game beyond doubt Sophie Cahill got the fourth from close range from an attacking short corner and Newquay had to travel back down south in their fun bus, suffering a 4-0 defeat.  Libby Walters who was outstanding in defence was given Players’ Player by her team mates.  Y&S remain in 2nd place in the West Womens Premier 2B league.
