Ladies 2s faced mid table Southampton 4 at a very sunny Smallbrook, hoping to maintain their recent winning ways. In a very even first half it was the Island who got the opener from their first short corner. A left slip from the top of the circle gave Gracie Boyd all the time in the world to fire the ball into the back of the net. Despite chances for both teams the score remained 1-0 at half time.
The second half saw Southampton starting to get frustrated with the skill of the Island youngsters and both sides got a little tetchy! Southampton were able to even the score when the Island defence learnt the hard way why you play to the whistle, hesitating expecting a foul, allowing the visitors to equalise. Final score 1-1 for a fair result for both teams. Wightlink Players of the Match was the whole team for such a great performance!
