Angels Ladies beat the League Champions

Dress rehearsal for Kent Divisional Cup Final 17th May

Angels Ladies ended their league campaign by preserving a 100% home league record with a hard fought 2-1 win against champions Thamesview on Sunday. The result also ensured the visitors will not complete the season with the full complement of 14 wins from 14.

With both sides guaranteed to finish 2nd and 1st respectively, and due to meet in a cup final 18 days later, there was little resting on the match other than pride, but this held back neither side who both gave everything in the hope of taking all three points.

Tonbridge stuck to a gameplan of organised defence and quick counter attacks throughout the first half and this proved highly effective. Thamesview had the best chance of the opening exchanges with a header from six yards out from a corner, but it was directed straight into the grateful arms of goalkeeper Sam Wright.

The visitors' frustrations appeared to deepen as the half wore on and reached breaking point towards the end of the half when they were stunned by two goals in the space of three minutes. On 41 minutes Lauryn Underhill broke away down the right and her shot deflected into the face of Becky Jarvis; amidst the confusion Megan Akehurst laid off for Underhill to strike from the edge of the box. Two minutes later the Thamesview defence was caught napping by Akehurst who carved open the defence and teed up Jarvis to chip the ball over the advancing goalkeeper from 25 yards.

The half time break allowed the Chatham side to recover their composure and they quickly reduced the arrears, however this was not without an element of good fortune as a Tonbridge clearance struck the referee on the edge of the box, and Wright was unable to hold on to the resulting shot, the rebound of which fell to Shannon Redhouse to convert.

40 minutes of staunch defence followed as Thamesview piled on the pressure, but led by captain Sharon Lyons, Angels stood firm throughout to clinch victory.

Team: Wright, Anastasiou, Coulter, Smith, Lyons (capt), Fothergill, Underhill, Moran, Akehurst, Jarvis, Gibb. Subs: Coombes, Syrett, Foster.
