Disappointment for Bungay

BUNGAY Town Ladies finally got back to action against Aylsham Town but despite having by far the lion's share of possession failed to find any of their usual passing football maybe due to the tricky conditions underfoot after the recent frosts and rarely threatened the Aylsham goal.

BUNGAY Town Ladies finally got back to action against Aylsham Town but despite having by far the lion's share of possession failed to find any of their usual passing football maybe due to the tricky conditions underfoot after the recent frosts and rarely threatened the Aylsham goal.

However Bungay started brightly with Addie Piper and Leo Dalby covering midfield - they kept Aylsham pinned back in their half but chances were hard to find but Trina Beard who was desperately unlucky when after sidestepping a defender she hit the crossbar with a shot from the edge of the area.

Bungay continued to dominate play but found the Aylsham defence hard to break down. With Aylsham playing two forwards on the shoulder of the Bungay back line they were always looking to run onto through balls and one eventually found its way to an onrushing forward who took the ball on and beat Gemma Holiday in goal with good drive into the far corner.

The second half was the continuing story of even greater Bungay domination of possession but with no end result, the defence keeping Aylsham mainly back in their half with Anna pushing forward on the right from full-back.

Aylsham occasionally looked dangerous breaking forward as Bungay became increasingly desperate to put some efforts in on goal but all too often crosses went ether too close to the keeper or no-one could get on the end of them.

Annie Piper tried one solo run and shot which the keeper saved with her legs but this was as close as Bungay got and just to finally add insult Aylsham broke through in the last minute to give the score a rather unjust 2-0 scoreline.

This result must be hard for the defence to take as they rarely put a foot wrong but somehow ended up on the losing side.

Maybe some extra training is needed to turn games like this into wins rather than very disappointing losses.
