Hereford Girls 4 Hutton Juniors 1 - Match Report

Hereford FC Girls U18 4 – 1 Hutton Juniors U18 

This super Sunday saw a top of the table clash as Victoria Park welcomed Hutton Girls, who had travelled all the way from Weston-Super-Mare.

Hereford started the brighter of the two sides and had a great chance early on to take the lead from the penalty spot but it wasn’t to be as it was put wide of the goal. Both teams were giving a good account of themselves as expected, with goalkeeper Devereux reading the game well to clear any danger and settle the home side.

It was Lauren Brown who broke the deadlock to give Hereford the goal they needed, as she extends her lead as the league’s top goalscorer, after latching onto a through ball. Brown then doubled her tally for the morning halfway through the first half, as the little fox in the box calmly placed the ball into the back of the net. Hutton could’ve pulled a goal back shortly after, but Devereux calmly back peddled to stop the ball bouncing over her into the goal.

As the second half got under way, Hereford started to keep hold of possession in midfield, which allowed the attacking threat of Kenny and Layton to express themselves positively going forward.

The home side them extended their lead, as Bushell and Holman combined well down the left, with Brown completing her hatrick as she pounced and coolly slotted the ball home to make it 3-0.  Captain Sian Bull grabbed the fourth, with Hutton scoring a late consolation goal as the game ended 4-1.

At the halfway point, the Hereford side sit four points ahead at the top of the table in what has been an impressive few months for the girls.
