Brentford Women picked up their second league win of the season last weekend. The Bees beat Comets 2-1 away from home in their Greater London Women's Football League Division One fixture. The victory in Regent's Park enabled Brentford to climb to fourth in the table with eight points from their seven games.
Brentford started very well and were soon dominating play against a team who were three points ahead of them before the start of play. They were playing some good football all over the field and creating chances, which paid off when Rebekah Wiltshire scored her fifth goal of the season to make it 1-0. The pattern of play remained the same for the most of the first period with the Brentford defence keeping Comets at bay.
The second half continued in the same way with Brentford dominating the match through some great passing and attacking play, with Rebekah slotting in her second of the game and sixth of the season. Comets were playing their part in making this a very competitive and watchable contest and were pushing hard for goals. They finally pulled one back late on through a low long-range effort that went through a crowd of players and into the bottom corner.
This was probably the best performance so far this season from the Brentford Women’s team, and proof that team work and determination pays off. Captain Mollie Holmes came off the bench late in the second half after her recent injury. Player of the match was Rebekah Wiltshire.
The Development Team suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat away at Sporting Duet in their latest league match. This was a tight contest lacking in quality on a poor pitch, both teams doing well this season with the Bees sitting third and Duet fourth before the start of play. The result meant that Sporting Duet leapfrogged Brentford who dropped to fourth. Scorer for The Bees was Jasmine Williamson which takes her tally to five in all competitions, and well done to Player of the Match Harpreet Heer.
The First Team have a weekend off but will be at Bedfont to cheer on the Development Team in their Sue Sharples Cup Match against Woking Reserves.
There is still a chance for players to join the women's teams and attend one of their training sessions. Register your interest by e-mailing Roger Crook at firstname.lastname@example.org or Amy Crook at Acrook@brentfordfccst.com.
