Great Harwood Rovers 1-6 Lytham St Annes YMCA Girls U-16s

YMCA were made to work hard for their victory at sunny East Lancashire last Sunday. They started slowly and the home side deservedly took the lead in the opening minutes from a counter attack. YMCA would have fallen further behind if it wasn't for an outstanding display by goalkeeper Olivia Neal who pulled off some outstanding saves. However YMCA started to fashion together some good passing play and equalised through Ellie Etheridge. Etheridge netted again for YMCA after combining well with Ellie McNally and the clinical Etheridge then completed a first half hat trick with another opportunist goal making it 3-1 at the break. The second half was much better for YMCA and Etheridge notched again to increase their lead further.  Honey Griffith then got onto the scoresheet with a well taken goal with the impressive Etheridge sealing YMCA’s victory with her fifth goal of the game with another excellent finish. Georgia Norman was notable throughout in a fine YMCA team display.
