Week 7 of Surrey FA Flexible League

The Reigate Women FC Tigresses took on Kingswood Ladies this week, looking to go one better than their sister teams, who had drawn and lost respectively in the two previous rounds of games.

The game was initially very evenly matched, with end to end action. Kingswood broke the deadlock first, scoring from a corner. However, shortly before half-time, the Tigresses hit Kingswood on the break with Jaime Randle setting up Zoe Perkin to equalise making it 1-1 at half-time. Following a sustained period of pressure in the second half, Perkin scored her second from a cross by Anna Wilson, helped by an awesome run by Claire Gray. Tigresses goalkeeper Sam Marshall saved a couple of late Kingswood efforts and the game finished 2-1, sparking joyous celebrations from the Tigresses team and supporters. Tigresses player/manager Samantha Marshall said ‘I am so proud of the team today. Although Zoe scored two great goals, it was a real team effort with both goals starting from Michelle O’Connor in defence and I’m so grateful to all our players’.

Top of the table Reigate Women FC Lionesses then took on the Caterham Palace Pumas. With lots of missed chances and some good saves by both goalkeepers, it was 0-0 at halftime. Misha West came out of goal for the second half, hoping to replicate her goal scoring antics from the last round of games but, despite some great efforts, sadly it was not to be and the game finished 0-0. 
The final rounds of fixtures will be played on Sunday 30 June 2019 at Meadowbank, Dorking (the home of Surrey FA).

Lionesses top the Flexi League

After the third weekend of the Surrey FA Flexible League, Reigate Women FC Lionesses retained the lead at the top with a third win in a row.

It was a fun, well-contested match. Woking Diamonds broke away after just 8 minutes and, after a great initial save by Beth Mulrenan in the Lionesses goal (who was playing in goal for the first time, due to an injury), took the lead. However, within two minutes, Libby Moy for RWFC Lionesses got the ball outside the area and curled an absolutely superb strike into the far corner to equalise.

After sustained pressure and a few half chances, Anais Escalona capitalised on a lose ball in the box and struck firmly home into the bottom left hand corner to make it 2-1 to the Lionesses after just 21 minutes.

In the second half, Lionesses’ player/manager Becky Keogh’s corner was curled in to make it 3-1, however some great play from Woking with 7 minutes remaining created an opening which was well converted, leaving the final score as 3-2 to the home team.

Surrey Flexi League Heats Up!

The second weekend of the Surrey FA Flexible League saw all three of Reigate Women FC’s squads in action for the first time. 

RWFC Lionesses played their first away fixture, travelling to south-west London to take on Sheen Mounties, to see which team would retain their 100% win record in the league. In the end, it was the Lionesses who ran out 2-1 winners, with both goals scored by Becky Keogh, although Jess Dorman was unlucky with her shot hitting the crossbar. The win propelled the Lionesses to the top of the league, as the only team to have the maximum six points from their first two games. 
At Priory Park, the RWFC Tigresses played their second club derby in a row, this time taking on the RWFC Panthers, who were making their league debut. This was a close game in the first half, the Panthers were unlucky to go a goal behind when a goal mouth scramble ended in an own goal. They recovered with Becca Nesbitt scoring the equaliser before halftime. In the second half, Holly Stroud and Zoe Perkin both scored, before Stroud scored her second, taking the Tigresses to a 4-1 win.
