Garston Ladies suffered a 2-0 defeat to Clapham United
12:00pm Friday 11th October 2013 in Sport
Garston Ladies went down to a 2-0 defeat against Clapham United at the Met Police Club on Sunday.
After a cagey first-half, the Purples conceded twice shortly after the restart.
Despite having chances in the second half, Garston were unable to claw their way back into the game.
Garston Ladies (96) were up against an impressive Bedfordshire outfit in Toddington Rovers with the game ending in a disappointing 3-1 defeat.
Garston took a deserved early lead with a smart finish from Chloe Hazell.
Despite dominating, two breakaway goals from Toddington before the interval swung the momentum with a third goal just after the break sealing Garston’s fate. The Under-16 Mets maintained their faultless start to the season with a hard-fought 3-2 win over Bishops Stortford.
Natalie Powell opened the scoring, but Stortford struck back in the second period to level.
Mets reclaimed the lead through Holly Jury, only for Stortford to equalise once more before Powell netted her second for the table-topping Mets.
Garston Ladies Under-16 Diamonds struggled against high-flying Bury Rangers Reds.
Megan Collins scored but it was small consolation in a 9-1 defeat. The Under-16 Sharks retained their place at the top of Division Two with a 1-1 draw against title rivals Enfield Town.
A first-half Hannah Burt goal looked like it would be enough but a late Enfield equaliser meant the points were shared.
The Under-14s travelled across town to take on Watford Ladies Wasps and after a lacklustre first-half display, found themselves 3-0 down.
An Ellie Fitzgibbons penalty just before the break gave Garston hope and the comeback seemed to be on when Fitzgibbons notched her second soon after.
But Watford had the better of the closing exchanges, scoring twice more to secure a 5-2 win.
There was another win for Garston’s all-conquering Under-12 Mets as they took on Hampstead.
Libby Poster’s early strike and Raaya Thanki’s powerful finish put the Mets into a commanding 2-0 lead.
Hampstead scored from a penalty just before half-time, but Mia Ford settled Garston’s nerves with a fine finish to secure a 3-1 win.
The Under-11 Mets had to recover a two-goal deficit to maintain their untarnished start to the season.
Denham United held a 2-0 interval lead but second-half goals from Claudia Bulow (2) and Nicole Zermani completed the turnaround to give Garston a 3-2 win. Another promising performance from Garston’s Under-11 Diamonds was not enough to prevent the girls from falling to a 2-0 defeat against Bedwell Rangers Meerkats.
