Feniscowles & Pleasington 3-1 Lytham St Annes YMCA Girls U-16s

YMCA came away from sunny Feniscowles with a narrow defeat against a lively home team who started brightly. YMCA never got going at the start and were 1-0 down within 5 minutes. However Ellie Etheridge bagged her 5th goal of the season with a fine free kick after Ellie McNally had been fouled in the build up. However the home side were always dangerous on the break and a misunderstanding in the YMCA defence allowed the home striker to pounce to make it 2-1. A further home goal followed to make it 3-1 at the break. Although the girls improved in the second half they were unable to get back into the game and the home side held on to leave YMCA still searching for their first victory of the season. Madison Lucas was outstanding throughout and her versatility was key in both defence and midfield.
