Ketts Park - Wymondham - 20.01.19 KO 1:30pm    

Final Score: Taverham Women 1 – 12 Wymondham Town Ladies

Wymondham continue their defense of the Norfolk Women’s Cup after cruising past Taverham.

Becca Russell opened the scoring in the opening minutes with a good shot from distance that left the Taverham Goalkeeper no chance. The powerful strike really put Wymondham on the front foot and they dominated until the half time whistle.

Wymondham doubled their lead after 11 minutes had been played when Mollie O’Callaghan had the ball squared to her and she smashed the ball past the keeper into the back of the net.

The difference between the teams was evident as Taverham struggled to get out of their own half. Wymondham were able to capitalise on their dominance and scored multiple goals with the pick of them coming half way through the half. Mollie O’Callaghan picked the ball up 20 yards from goal and blasted her shot into the top corner of the net.

Half Time: Taverham Women 0 – 8 Wymondham Town Ladies

Both teams made changes at the break and this was obvious to see on the pitch. Taverham were keeping the ball much better and deservedly got their goal with 15 minutes played in the second half.

Poor defending from Wymondham allowed the Taverham Striker to have a shot from 30 yards out. The Wymondham goalkeeper could do nothing except watch the ball fly over her head and into the net. This goal was received well by both sets of supporters as everyone watching cheered for the Taverham forward’s brilliant strike.

As the game approached its end the Wymondham front line continued to cause Taverham trouble as they had done all game. Further goals from Laura Nicholls, Chelsea Clarke and Mollie O’Callaghan saw Wymondham increase their goal tally to 12.

Wymondham enter the Norfolk Women’s Cup Semi-Finals alongside Acle United, Thorpe United and either Sprowston Athletic or King’s Lynn Town. The draw for the Semi-Finals will take place this Friday live on BBC Radio Norfolk at 6:30pm.
