The Ladies 1s faced local derby team Weston super Mare in what was set to be a tough match. Not long into the game, Bridgwater were down a player due to injury, and a shuffle of positions was in order. This led to a series of goals scored by Weston before the end of the first half.
The Ladies 2s travelled to Weston, looking to get their first win of since the Christmas break.
Bridgwater started well with Rose Baker and Jess Shobbrook hassling from the start. Jess won the ball passing it to Clare Wilson on the edge of the D, who in turn found Rose on the far post putting Bridgwater a goal up in the first two minutes. This boosted Bridgwater with Beth Porter, Danni Morgan and Kate Ward doing a great job intercepting the ball from Westons hit outs. Kate Ward then had a shot on goal, Clare Wilson picked the deflection to score Bridgwater's second goal. Weston then started attacking and broke through the middle, Lauren Morrish and Jenny Hayden-Briffet did well to track back. Sue Durkin made some good saves in goal but unfortunately Bridgwater conceded a goal. Kashi Morrish and Niamh Dillon linked well down the right to get the ball through to Clare who again found Rose in the D scoring her second of the game.
Weston started the second half a little more determined but Hilary McNeil, Rachel Higgs and Bridget Hedeax did a great job keeping them out of the D. Weston then scored from a short corner with the ball just going over the line. Bridgwater continued to play well and pass the ball around and saw the game finish 3 2 to Bridgwater.
