Dominant display sets Sutton up for win

Long Sutton Ladies 2,

Cambridge Nomads 0

LONG Sutton dominated the game from the start with some fantastic passing throughout the whole team.

Long Sutton scored early after a string of short corners saw Mel Ludlam send the ball over the keeper after her first shot was saved. Cambridge Nomads had a few breakaways during the rest of the first half, but were thwarted by a strong Sutton defence.

Sutton started the second half with intent, making some very good attacking play down both flanks.

Captain Ali Hobson had numerous attempts to score but failed to capitalise. Lachan Read slammed the ball into the goal midway through the second half from open play to give Sutton a comfortable lead.

Player of the Match was Sally Cade for her exceptionally strong performance in defence.
