Woodhorn Lane Ladies defeat Newcastle East End

Ashington Woodhorn Lane Ladies kicked off their season with a victory on Sunday against Newcastle East End.

After a slow start with both teams struggling to get going, Kristie Fenwick latched onto a through ball from Laura Jobson but her shot went wide.

The visitors took the lead in the 18th minute when Danny Hooker collected the ball on the edge of the box and her shot beat the keeper.

But shortly afterwards, a mistake by the Woodhorn defence led to East End equalising.

On the half hour mark, a good run down left wing by Fenwick saw her cross for Rebecca Caldow who fired past the advancing keeper to restore the lead.

Five minutes into second half Lauren Kavanagh netted a stunning third. She got the ball on the halfway line and drove a right foot shot into top left hand corner.

On Sunday Ashington are away to Cramlington United where kick-off is 2pm.
