Match Report for 14th January 2018
Mansfield Town 1 Bingham Ladies 2. A brilliant win on the road for the ladies today, revitalised in 2018. A superb performance started when new signing Grace Blackburn burst forward after some neat midfield play sent her clear, the keeper brought her down on the edge of the box. Captain Marika Wolfe then scored direct from the free kick, putting it past the keeper from 25 yards. A tight game followed with both sides playing very neat football, very end to end. Late in the second half, Mansfield equalised after a period of pressure and a string of outstanding saves from goalkeeper Lizzie Goode. Bingham Ladies pushed forward, and scored the winner in the 90th minute to take all 3 points, Marika getting her second of the game after a neat pass from Katie Sharman. Resolute and outstanding defending from front to back in injury time protected the win, which goes down as the best performance from the ladies this season and a great way to start the new year.
