Felpham Colts Girls 0 Bognor Town Girls 2

Another great performance by the Rockettes saw them secure three more valuable points.

Bognor started well and Isabelle Childs was a constant threat out wide.

The Bognor girls opened the scoring on 25 minutes when from a throw-in Jasmine Shipsides laid the ball to Chelsy Osborne, who played a lovely pass across the goal where Tia Hart ghosted in at the far post to sidefoot home.

Bognor started the second half brightly and with esmae now in midfield Bognor pressure came from both sides.

They had a scare on 45 minutes, but Amelia Howard made an amazing last-ditch tackle.

Bognor increased their lead on 50 minutes when the ball fell to Osborne and she sent a sublime chip over the keeper from 30 yards into the net.
