Brentford Women's B team ended their season in the best possible way, beating Islington Borough LFC in the final of the Greater London Women's Football League Anniversary Trophy. It was a nail biting afternoon and it took second half goals to settle the contest. A 2-0 victory was enough to crown The Bees champions of the Greater London Women's Football League 50th Anniversary tournament and received the trophy.
In the final game of the season, both Brentford Ladies and Islington competed to finish the year on a strong note. Despite the fact that both teams had numerous quality opportunities, there was no score in the first half.
When the second half began, both teams were revving with even more energy and hunger for a goal than they had been in the first. The increasing number of shots on goal led to an increase in tensions between the two teams, whose defences were both performing well.
When Kasey Clifford scored for Brentford in the 68th minute, she did so with a powerful header that went straight past the goalkeeper. This was the moment that broke the deadlock. The tension in the air was palpable, and the team's morale improved significantly as they continued their search for more.
Not too much time had passed when Brentford won a free kick on the far left side of the field. Kasey was able to capitalise on this opportunity with a single shot that went through all of the players, high over the keeper, and into the back of the net in the 81st minute. The Bees secured a 2-0 lead and were determined to either extend their lead or keep it at that.
Cheyenne Faulkner worked brilliant play on the right wing, and Chloe Logie went for goal, but the final whistle blew, and The Bees secured their final win of the season along with a trophy.
When asked 'How are you feeling? Head Coach Will Blithing replied: "I can't put it into words. I'm just so excited. We were nervous going in but once the game started I grew confident that we were going to win."
The ground was full of cheers and it was a lovely day for Brentford.
