Bridlington suffered their first reversal of the YNE Women’s Division 2 Moor & Dale season, going down 4-2 at new leaders Spen Valley on Saturday, reports Juan Carlos Lino.
During a high-intensity match, Bridlington showed that their competitive level is very advanced.
With the experienced Anne Hunter and captain Lisa Mussett leading the way, the team showed they are difficult to beat.
The result did not reflect the competitive quality of the visiting team and was a harsh reward for players of the match Mussett and Kasey Hill, who both displayed incredible determination and perseverance.
After a strong start, the ladies dominated the first half and Sarah Turner put the away side ahead.
However, a shaky beginning to the second half saw the Mirfield-based side equalise and then go 2-1 up.
An excellent strike by Mussett at a short corner brought things all square again before Spen Valley upped the pressure to score two more goals.
