Peterborough United LFC v Kettering United: Result 6 - 0

Posh ran out 6-0 winners against a spirited 6 man Kettering United on Saturday. After a tentative start Peterborough took control and were rarely troubled throughout the game.

The first half started with Posh attacking the Kettering goal and testing the keeper with a couple of long range shots. Shay Stanford and Laura Bigginton took control of the midfield with good tackling and distribution allowing Zoe Watkins and Olivia Slater to create chances up front. The first goal came when Watkins picked the ball up from a Kettering goal kick and strode forward to place the ball past the keeper. The second followed shortly after when the Posh midfield won the ball and fed Zoe Watkins to fire home her second from 15 yards. Any Kettering attack was comfortably dealt with by Emily Walker and Paige Moore at the back. Goal number 3 was the result of a good passing move involving 4 players. Olivia Slater shot at the end of the move and despite a good save from the keeper Laura Bigginton was on hand to fire home the rebound. The fourth goal followed another team move which ended with Zoe Watkins crossing for olivia Slater to slot home.

The second half continued in the same pattern with Posh dominating the game. Zoe Watkins completed her hat trick when Emily Gaylor touched the ball into her path allowing her to beat the keeper again. Kettering continued to try and put pressure on Posh and had a couple of quick breaks which were dealt with by defensive subs Ruth Trolove and Hannah Hillan. Their one real chance was saved by Kloe Bennett who up until then had little to do. The final goal was scored by Emily Walker who hit the post and followed up herself to hammer home the rebound.

Manager Greg Tilley said: “I think this was probably our best performance as a team to date. We are starting to move the ball about much better and our control is improving. We really took control of the game and didn’t allow Kettering any time at all. In previous games we occasionally lost concentration but not this time. Player of the Match went to Laura Bigginton who worked hard in midfield and constantly encouraged everyone around her. “

The next match for Posh is away to City Colts B on Saturday 15th November Kick off 10.30.

Raunds Tigers v Peterborough United LFC : Result 0 - 10

Posh Ladies Under 13’s continued their run of form with a second double figure scoreline of the week beating Raunds Tigers 10-0.

Posh started well and went on the attack from the first whistle. Early pressure told after 6 minutes when Becky Smith slotted the ball home for the opener. However, Posh then eased off and almost paid the price as Raunds started to exert some pressure of their own and this coupled with some indecision in the Posh defence made for one or two nervous moments in the Posh area.

However, Posh soon rediscovered their touch and on 20 minutes a corner was half cleared to Emma Stebbing who hit the ball back into the area only for the bounce to beat the keeper and land in the net. This was followed 6 minutes later by skipper Chanade Henderson’s effort which beat the keeper. This game was a strange one for Henderson as she lined up opposite her younger sister who was playing for Raunds!!

After the break and some encouraging words from manager Sorrell, Posh responded with a 7 goal blast in 20 minutes. Ten minutes into the second half, a shot from Natalie Gaches was heading across the area, but saw an unlucky Raunds defender deflect the ball into the net whilst trying to clear. Five minutes later Jessica O’Sullivan scored her first of the game and this was followed by a second within a minute. Substitute Lorna Gallacher added the seventh in the 57th minute and fellow sub Jordan Biggs chipped the home keeper from 18 yards for the eighth before O’Sullivan completed her hat-trick and added a fourth within two minutes to complete the scoring.

Manager Dominic Sorrell said: “Although the level of the performance wasn’t as good as previous games, we worked hard for 70 minutes and got our rewards late on. Raunds battled for every ball and caused us problems, which eventually we found the answers to. The work we have put in at training is beginning to pay dividends, but we still have some way to go to match the teams at the top of the league.”

Chesterfield Reserves v Peterborough United LFC : Result 0 – 6
League Cup

The Peterborough Ladies travelled together to Chesterfield to compete in the League Cup and compete is what they did right from the first whistle as it took the Ladies only 2 minutes to get an effort on the Chesterfield goal. It was strong and hardworking Vicky Tyler who put her partner through on goal but Vicky Lines’ shot was one of many well saved shots saved by their player of the match, the goalkeeper. In the 10th minute Vicky Lines threatened again with help from brave Nicola Kuch who flicked the ball on but this time she hooked the ball just over the bar. The goalkeeper held out making some fantastic saves until the 32nd minute when she saved the initial Vicky Lines effort that rebounded to Stacie Gross whose accurate goal bound shot took a deflection and like all the best strikers Vicky Lines was in the right place to tuck the ball in for her easiest goal of the day. Zoe Geldart was next to come close as Lisa White who was majestic in centre midfield swung in a corner that Zoe attempted to do the spectacular by hitting the crossbar with an over head kick. Great effort.

The second goal came from another Lisa white set piece that scramble in the area and Vicky Lines was on hand again to apply the finish as she instinctively smashed the ball in with her left foot. The back three of Sarah Lloyd, Caroline woods and Player of the match Carley Tickner, provided a strong base with the ever reliable Claire Ireson behind them. It was Carley who made a superbly timed tackle in the 45th min to keep the advantage and momentum with Posh.

The Players were focused during the break and started like a house on fire as Nicola Kuch headed into the path of Vicky Lines who sensed her first hat-trick for the club and lobbed the on rushing goalkeeper magnificently to make it 3-0 to Posh. Then she was heavily involved again as she skilfully rounded the goalkeeper but the shot hit the post but luck today was with us as the defender pushed the ball over the line for an own goal. Then the Birthday girl, Carley Tickner, surprised everyone by powering in an unstoppable shot with her right foot to make the score 5-0 to the posh ladies. The final goal was scored by the classy Vicky Lines as her partner Vicky Tyler flicked on for her and she lobbed the tall goalkeeper again to round off the best team display so far this season.

Manager Peter Hall Said
“A classy team performance, the best so far for me. The players are still young and learning and are capable of even better in time. They were magnificent together today”.

Cambridge United A v Peterborough United LFC: Result 0 – 3

Peterborough United Ladies Reserves moved into to second position in the league with a dominant display against bottom of the table Cambridge United Reserves ‘A’ with a 3-0 victory. Two goals from Lara Young and a strike from Laura Griggs gave Posh an advantage at half time and despite having all the possession the score remained the same till full time.

The opening quarter of an hour had been quite close with both teams determined to make a good start. Posh were expecting a similar outcome to the home fixture one month before which resulted in a 14-2 thrashing. But Cambridge were in no mood for a repeat and although they never troubled goalkeeper Laura Ansell, they were always hard working and battling in defence.

It took Posh 15 minutes to open the scoring when a ball broke loose to Lara Young who thumped it past the keeper from just outside the box. Posh showed some excellent attacking skills especially down both flanks by full backs Rikkea Rivers and Cara Clarke who on numerous occasions got past the Cambridge defence and delivered deadly crosses.

Posh’ second goal came on the half hour with some good attacking play from Roxanne Copping, she took her chance with a strike from the corner of the box that beat the keeper but bounced off the crossbar. Fortunately for Posh Laura Griggs was on hand to volley the rebound in and get her just rewards for her efforts. Posh then added a third from the penalty spot when a handball resulted in Lara Young scoring her second just on the stroke of half time.

With Posh struggling to find any form in front of goal the scoreline should have been added to in the second half, however Cambridge to their credit, put up a wall of resistance that the Posh attack broke down on numerous occasions but could not find the back of the net.

Chances went begging at regular intervals for Posh with Debbie Hewlett and Melanie Chappell being denied by the keeper from long distance, Young and Copping having their shots blocked or diverted wide and Natalie Pike and Griggs not hitting the target when it seemed easier to score.

Manger Sam Kettle commented, “Our build up play was very good, we dominated the possession in both halves and created numerous scoring chances. Unfortunately for us we came up against an in form goalkeeper and a resilient defence which were helped by our less than clinical finishing.”

Posh have a week off next Sunday but return on Sunday 23rd November kick off at 2pm away at Northampton Town Reserves

Posh: L Ansell, C Clarke, R Rivers, J Steele (T Carter), M Chilcot, R Copping (M England), M Chappell, D Hewlett, L Griggs, N Pike, L Young.
