Cath Hole slams five goals in Nailsea Ladies 2nd XI 8-2 defeat of White Eagles.

Nailsea Ladies 2nd XI 8

White Eagles 2

THERE was no sign of a repeat of last week’s travel fatigue, when Nailsea flew out of the blocks scoring two goals in three minutes.

The first came from a solo effort when the effervescent Cath Hole left the defence stunned and the keeper watching as the ball flew high and wide out of reach. The second a complete contrast when a pinpoint pass from Alice Keyworth to the top of the D, where Cath’s first time strike found its mark.

Minutes later Cath produced a repeat of the first goal closely followed by a fourth when another telling pass from Keyworth, through the defence, found Jess Atkinson in prime position to slot the ball home behind their backs.

To this point the visiting defence had been untroubled, but the Eagles pulled a goal back. However, Nailsea’s attack were rampant and creative with short sharp passing between each other as displayed when Hole went wide to pass inside to Keyworth, who slipped to Atkinson, who wrong footed the keeper to find the target.

The sixth and final goal of the half was similarly created, but Keyworth took the initiative to get on the score sheet with a reverse stick sweep.

The second half saw the home side make positional changes and the visitors ease off a little. Although Nailsea looked in control and scored another goal when Hole again fired from wide on the edge of the D, White Eagles had a little more slice of this half doubling their score with determination.

Hole finished off the match with a solo run and a powerful shot bring her total to five and Nailsea to eight.
