Under-12s fight back

ASHINGTON CFC Ladies Under-12 girl’s side remain top of their league following a 1-1 draw against West Denton Girls and they remain unbeaten in 2011.

The West Denton side took the lead when the Ashington defence stood still expecting the referee to blow his whistle following an injury to Megan Pick.

West Denton capitalised on the hesitation and lobbed the ball into the net.

Despite having already missed a penalty kick and also striking the crossbar, the Angels continued to believe they could get back into the game and they got their reward when midfielder Abby Sheldon rounded three players to calmly slot the ball into the net.

Despite pressurising the West Denton side the Ashington girls were unable to grab a second goal and had to settle for a point.

Girl of the game was Chloe Crook.
