Burnley Girls & Ladies 3-0 Lytham St Annes YMCA Girls U-16s

YMCA were unlucky to come away from East Lancs with nothing to show from this game played in very pleasant conditions last Sunday. The home side settled into the game quicker than YMCA and took the lead when an attack on the break caught out the YMCA defence. Hesitation in the YMCA defence then resulted in them going 2-0 down after 15 mins. YMCA did have chances to get back into the game but found the home goalkeeper in outstanding form pulling off a number of fine saves to deny strikers Isabelle Kells and Annabelle Jackson and it remained 2-0 at half time.  After the break YMCA continued to try to salvage a goal back but Georgia Norman and Yasmine Menezes were again denied by the Burnley goalkeeper.  With a few minutes remaining the home side once again caught out the visitors on break to make it 3-0 and effectively finish the game.  Madison Lucas, Honey Griffith and Ellie McNally were notable for YMCA.
