TYNEDALE Ladies came from behind to record a comfortable on the road to Jesmond Parish Council.

While the scoreline slightly flattered them, Tynedale were great as they came away with a 5-1 victory.

It did take them some time to settle into the game, and they found themselves trailing when an unmarked player made the most of some slack defending to connect with a pass from the right.

The goal spurred Tyne into action and they produced a number attacks to put the pressure on the home side.

Teenager Lizzie Scott came to the fore and put Tynedale ahead as she used her speed and skill to help herself to a first half hat-trick.

Great interlinking play from forward Naomi Garner and Immie Pearson saw the ball arrive to Scott, and she did the rest as she finished all her chances in style.

Midfielder Vicky Forster and Alison Westworth worked hard to distribute the ball around the JPC defence to keep Tyne in the ascendancy.

A great penalty corner strike from Sarah Martindale saw the ball stopped by a foot on the goal line, and before the penalty flick could be awarded, Sue Crawford pounced to flick the ball into the net.

Tynedale took a comfortable 4-1 lead into the half time break, but they faced an onslaught of Jesmond attacks after the break as their strong attacking presence resulted in a run of penalty corners.

The home side also pressed the Tynedale defence, but they were quashed at every opportunity.

This allowed Rachael Smith to extend Tynedale’s lead just before the final whistle, her weaving stick in the circle outwitting the home defence and her shot found its way into the back of the net.

The victory was a follow-up to Tynedale’s fightback against Newcastle Ladies III which saw them claw their way back from two goals down to draw 2-2.

A young side packed full of teenagers from the juniors set-up at the club found themselves with a mountain to claim as they found themselves 2-0 down.

But they showed great spirit to fight back, Vicky Foster and Scott scoring great goals.
