Lytham St Annes YMCA Girls U-16s 6-3 Cadley

YMCA produced an outstanding team performance in this top of the table clash at a pleasant Seafield Rd last Sunday  This was always going to be an entertaining contest with both teams equally matched.  YMCA started the game quick out of the blocks and took the lead inside the first minute.  Good work from Mia Woodhouse found Isabelle Kells who made no mistake to strike to make it 1-0.  However the visitors who were always dangerous on the break got back into the game and then took the lead themselves after YMCA were caught napping.  However YMCA never gave up and it was Kells again who struck to make it 2-2.  Cadley were always in the game though and they scored again to go into the break 3-2 in front.  YMCA came out in the second half with purpose and desire and some of their approach play was outstanding to watch.  Captain Ellie McNally led the charge and it was her goal that got YMCA back into the game after good work from Georgia Norman and an incisive pass from Kells.  YMCA were now dominant and Kells was on fire scoring a further three outstanding goals to complete an impressive YMCA victory. Fran Lyons was outstanding in midfield and keeper Olivia Neal battled on superbly after sustaining an injury in the 1st half to keep YMCA in the game with some fine saves
