Millwall make up ground
 Women's Football News 20 Mar 2009
 
Millwall Lionesses gave a fine display to see off a major rival at Hanwell on Thursday evening, beating Barnet 5-2.
 
They stunned their hosts with three goals in the opening twenty minutes and withstood a very strong fightback with two further second half strikes in a game dominated by two outstanding forward partnerships. Anne Marie Heatherson scored from a great cross from Emma Whitter on 12 minutes and immediately added a second.
 
When Leanne Champ scored from the touchline with a cross which deceived Cherie Rowlands, a rout looked on the cards. However, the introduction of Stacey Sowden fron the bench inspired a great comeback from the Bees. Holly Sandow scored an excellent individual goal then Cheryl Williams hit a rocket shot past Claire Lacey from 25 yards to leave the match in the balance at the break.
 
Barnet continued to press, Sowden had a shot cleared off the line and Lacey made a brilliant save from a looping header on the hour which was the turning point of the match. Millwall had continued to look menacing, chiefly through the outstanding pace and power of Whitter and Vicky Boardman restored the two-goal cushion with lob from the edge of the area at the three quarter point of the game.
 
Williams and Sowden again went close for Barnet but it was Whitter who fittingly had the final word with an outstanding curling shot from the edge of the box to seal a fine win.
 
Barnet were left to curse an awful start where their back four were unable to cope with the Millwall front two, but they showed great character to dominate for the middle third of the match. However, the Lionesses eventually deserved their win and they look a formidable unit with pace and strength throughout the team.
