Basingstoke Town Ladies well beaten by league leaders
BASINGSTOKE Town Ladies were brushed aside by Southern League Premier Division leaders Woodley United on Sunday.
Hosts Woodley scored twice in the space of three minutes to lead 2-0 before the half-an-hour mark. Josette Pearmine had a shot saved as Town looked for a way back into the game but two further Woodley goals had the hosts in control at half-time.
Pearmine pulled a goal back with a header from Michelle Kimber’s cross on 72 minutes but it was Woodley who looked more dangerous late on, Erin Davis making two good saves to restrict the score to 4-1.
Town sit sixth in the table and are in the middle of a busy week. They alost 2-1 away at third-placed Gosport Borough last night and face a trip to Parley Sports, who sit ninth, on Sunday. Then, on Wednesday, they host Portsmouth Ladies, who play at a much higher level, in the semi-finals of the Hampshire Cup.
