Cup agony for Bungay

Royston Town Ladies 2, 1 Bungay Town Ladies 1

Another frustrating week for the ladies in the League Cup saw them go down to a side that were second best for most of the game.

Once again lack of clear-cut chances and silly mistakes cost the team dearly.

After a long trip to Hertfordshire, Bungay started very well and didn’t allow Royston any of the ball within the first fifteen minutes. They were unlucky not to go ahead when Lauren Mickleburgh’s first time effort just went over the bar and a number of other chances went begging.

In similar fashion to previous weeks, two soft goals were awarded to the other team, which meant despite being on top for the majority of the half, Bungay went into the break 2-0 down.

Half time saw a number of changes, but much to Bungay’s disappointment Jo Oakley sustained a knee injury and was unable to continue, leaving Bungay down to ten with a least 20 minutes to play.

The spirit of the team did, however, shine through and a good ball from Leo Daulby put Michelle Stanborough through who calmy chipped the keeper to give Bungay some hope.
