Blockley dented by late strike

First published in Sport

BLOCKLEY suffered their first West Clubs Women’s League Severn Division One defeat of the season, going down 3-2 at home to Cheltenham thirds.

Play was even in the firsthalf with both teams close to breaking the deadlock.

Blockley’s defence was held together by captain Sam Jones, player-of-the-match Angela Reading-East, Charlie Geddes, Kitty Boyes and goalkeeper Claire Miles.

The hosts pressed forward and applied constant pressure but could not score and were 2-0 down by half-time.

Blockley came out strongly in the second period eager to pull a goal back and increasing pressure led to an opener from a well-timed run by Sabrina Rew. Shortly after, they equalised with a shot from the top of the ‘D’ by Debbie Honour that found the bottom left-hand corner.

However, just before the final whistle, Cheltenham scored a cruel winner.
