Wymondham Town 0, Acle Utd Ladies 2

On Sunday, Acle Ladies travelled to King’s Head Meadow, Wymondham,

This was Acle’s first game since the turn of the year and it was going to be a test for them against a strong Wymondham town side who gave Acle a really good game back in November.

Acle decided to pack the midfield to stop them playing and went with only one up top. After only five minutes on the clock Ohara whipped in a wicked ball from the right but Baker shot straight at the keeper.

The following minute Wymondham had a good chance to take the lead but the danger was snuffed out by the covering Mcguire.

After the early exchanges of possesion Acle started to play the ball around the park well and a good defensive header by Emmerson found Hooper who then found Anderson on the half way line and she played a sublime through ball to Baker who cooly slotted the ball under the advancing Wymondham keeper.

Leading up to half time it was pretty much one-way traffic in Acle’s favour and chances were coming and going like buses with Hooper, Ashman and Baker all squandering chances.

The second half brought about a different-looking Wymondham side which had good amounts of early possesion but never really caused Holl any problems in goal,

Just after the hour mark Baker was put through by Boast and forced a good save from the impressive home goalkeeper but the rebound fell to E Anderson who with a diving header put the ball in the back of the net via the underside of the crossbar for 2-0.

After the second goal went in Acle shut up shop and kept the ball well and made it hard for the opposition to get near the ball and ran the clock down with ease,

Overall a good solid start to 2012 with a good display of possesion football.
