Preston NE v Cestria U16
Today in the West Lancashire league the girls travel down to Preston for a tough game against PNE...
Match report to follow soon.........
Preston kicked off and knocked the ball about nicely but Cestria were soon in their stride and quickly went 1-0 up with a superb flighted goal from Zoe Ness. Goals followed from Rosie Young and a Vic Linsley header. Then before half time we were awarded a stonewall penalty after Megan Beel was brought down in the box which Zoe converted. In fact we should have had another penalty straight after which wasn't given.
HT Preston NE 0:4 Cestria
To be honest we expected a few more goals in the second half which didn't happen. Partly down to our scrappy play and partly down to a tremendous display by PNE who worked their socks off and deserved their goal. In fact they should have had another after the ref blew for offside with no flag from the linesman. We had our chances with Meg Lawson hitting the inside of the post with a placed shot and Rosie going close after being put through.
FT Preston NE 1:4 Cestria
Well done Preston, great 2nd half display, all the more impressive with you being mostly U15's. Good luck for the season.
