Football: Swiss Valley Rangers produce five-star display
PUBLISHED: 17:00 29 April 2019
Swiss Valley Rangers under-12 girls came out on top at Whitchurch at the weekend.
They started well and looked confident on the ball, with Ava, Xara and Poppy dominating midfield.
The hosts created some good chances on the break, but Katie commanded her box well and defenders Ella B, Ameila and Nyah held firm to keep the scoreline blank.
SVR took the lead when Katie's quick goal kick and a short ball from Ava allowed Ella W to play a through ball for Jas to ace down the left wing, cut inside and slot into the bottom corner.
Jas doubled the score soon after, following a run down the right wing and powerful shot, and SVR went 4-0 up after the break as leading scorer Ella W took a pair of chances.
Fern, Ameila and Nyah came under pressure as Whitchurch looked to reply, with Libby and Maggie providing support, but the home side managed to find the net.
Player of the match Katie produced some fine saves to deny them further reward, though, and SVR had the last word when Ella W broke on the right and beat several players before a sublime finish.
