Frome Town Women hosted Swindon Supermarine with hopes of 3 points after a narrow defeat in the reverse fixture earlier in the season and it started well with Isaacson hitting the post early doors. Frome looked up for it on a tricky heavy pitch and on 10 minutes Bristow forced the travelling keeper into a smart save from a good shot from the edge of the area, soon after Christmas broke through one on one after a great Isaacson through ball only to miss the target. Christmas relishing the slippy conditions found herself one on one again on 20 minutes but this time rounded the keeper and tucked the ball away nicely.
Frome started to turn the screw on the 10 players of Swindon and on 30 minutes Mist’s fast feet in the area ended with a neat turn too good for Swindon’s defender resulting in a Frome penalty, with a crowd behind the club house goal offering plenty on advice the birthday girl Mist stepped up confidently and side footed Frome’s 2nd of the afternoon. Swindon still working hard up front couldn’t get the better of the Frome defence who all worked tirelessly to get to the break with the 2 goal advantage.
Frome came out for the 2nd half looking to finish off the game with a 3rd and after 5 minutes did just that with a sweet strike from Isaacson leaving the visitors keeper no chance. Porch was unlucky not to get on the score sheet minutes later with an instinctive 1st time strike along with Bristow and McGregor shooting goal bound but the keeper somehow managed to keep them all out after prolonged Frome pressure. In the 75th minute McGregor’s shot was too strong for the impressive visiting keeper to get anywhere near and not wanting to miss out Brant joined the party on 80 mins with an unstoppable left foot missile that nearly broke the net.
With Edwards,Ratcliffe, Brant and Didymus all commanding the back line expertly Restorick had an easy afternoon in goal and with the ref looking to end Swindon’s afternoon of torture Underhill had the last say lashing home a great strike from outside the box to top off a fine Frome performance with six great goals from six different players.
The supporters player of the match was a tough one but Isaacson edged it for her goal and switching into a few different positions throughout the game. Next week the ladies travel to Swindon Town Development to hopefully pick up 3 more points.
