Tynedale Ladies were back to winning ways last week with a convincing 4-1 win away to Medics II’s.

With the perfect blend of youth and experience, Tynedale dominated the game thanks to some link play and accurate passing.

The first ten minutes set the tone, with most of the action in the Medics goalmouth. The opposition battled hard to clear the ball, but Tynedale’s efforts were soon rewarded with a short corner.

Captain Sue Crawford’s accurate injection was dispatched with aplomb by Lizzie Scott - a rocket of a strike, cracking into the bottom corner to put the visitors 1-0 ahead.

With tails up, Tynedale continued to play with confidence. Any attacking moves from the Medics were dealt with efficiently by the strong defensive unit made up of May Thomas, Sue Crawford, Marianne Murphy and Emma Sanderson. Youngster Murphy particularly impressed, showing great energy and tenacity to win the ball and distribute it effectively to create several attacking moves.

The second goal came about as a result of some brilliant passing between youngsters Hattie Brown and Laura Gray. Finding herself one on one with the keeper, Gray kept her cool and struck the ball cleanly into the goal.

With half time approaching, Tynedale lost concentration a little allowing Medics to break through and score to make it 2-1.

After the break, Tynedale were soon 3-1 up thanks to a stylish passage of play. Lizzie Scott, using pace and skill, flew down the left wing before passing to Alison Westworth who had sprinted into the ‘D.’ With the keeper charging towards her, Westworth calmly tapped the ball to Lisa Scott who’s simple finish completed a well worked goal.

The Medics never gave up, and put together some great moves in midfield, but Tynedale were just too strong - Tasha Berkley and Francesca Dent ably assisting the defence and goalkeeper Nicky Baguely deftly snuffing out any further chances on goal.

Tynedale finished the game 4-1 winners with another corner goal - mirroring the first - with Player of the Match, Lizzie Scott sealing victory.
