Bees lose ground at top after defeat in North London
Brentford Women's Greater London Women's Football League Division One promotion hopes suffered a major setback on Sunday as they were beaten 2-1 by Enfield Town Reserves at Donkey Lane. Ryan Peters' side struggled to get any fluency going and fell behind in the first-half as Enfield's striker broke the offside trap and finished neatly past Roxy Clark.
The home side doubled their lead after the break as a long ball forward caused confusion in The Bees back-line, the Enfield striker taking full advantage to poke home. Nadia Peters did pull one back for The Bees late on, latching on to a Jenn Amols Brett through ball, but it wasn't enough as The Bees slipped to fourth, three points off second-place but having played two games more. Next Sunday, The Bees are on the road again as they head to sixth-placed Kingstonian.
It was also a tough afternoon for Brentford Development as they were beaten 12-0 by Division Three South leaders South London Laces at Lampton School. The Bees are eighth in the league with a home game against Actonians Development to look forward to next Sunday.
