Argyle Ladies 3 Copsewood 1

Argyle Ladies 3 Copsewood 1

ARGYLE Ladies bounced back from their defeat in the Dockyard Derby last week with a hard fought victory against Copsewood (Coventry) Ladies.

Two second half goals from Mollie Taylor, and one from Ezme Wells, were enough to see off the struggling visitors.

In a largely forgettable first half, Argyle fell behind in the 35th minute after Foskett got between the two Argyle centre halves and ran clear to slot the ball past Phillips in the Pilgrims goal.

Manager Kev Rose changed to a 4-4-2 formation to start the second half, pushing Katie Middleton up to play along side Taylor up front. It was those two that combined to help Argyle draw level in the 57th minute. Middleton played a lovely through ball to Taylor who neatly tucked the ball away.

It was the same pair involved that saw Argyle take the lead sixteen minutes later. Middleton was scythed down midway in the Copsewood half and with players on both sides stopping, expecting the referee to blow for a foul, he waved play on and it was Taylor who reacted quickest to smash the loose ball past the Copsewood keeper.

Argyle sealed all three points on 90 minutes when Wells picked up the ball on the left, ran across the box and saw her shot take a big deflection to wrong foot the goalkeeper.

Team (4-1-4-1): Phillips, Volpini Middleton, Kisielewska, Javan, Lake, Chubb, Brown, Baker, Wells, Taylor. Subs: Hugh, Moseley.
