Keynsham serve up festive treat

Keynsham serve up festive treat - 23 Dec 2013 - Women's Football NewsKeynsham Town 5 Chesham United 2
Keynsham Town gave a five-star display to defeat Chesham United at the AJN Stadium, moving off the bottom of the FA Premier League Southern Division in the process. 
 
Level at the break after twice falling behind, Keynsham overpowered their visitors with a sparkling attacking display which could have resulted in a wider margin of victory.
 
Keynsham gifted their visitors a second minute lead with a badly underhit back pass towards Gwyn West which Gemma Fraser took full advantage of, after a good initial save by the Keynsham keeper. Undeterred, the home team piled on the pressure, forcing keeper Katie McGloin into action frequently.
 
Hannah Davies had a shot well held, then Olivera Markovic set up Katarzyna Rusek for an effort cleared off the line. Rusek was not to be denied for long, however, firing home the equaliser with a low shot on 12 minutes.
 
Natalie Adams was proving effective for Chesham on the right as was Julissa Rodriguez for the hosts on the left. Both wide players set up half chances with crosses as the match flowed from end to end.
 
Leanne Lapham headed over whilst West saved well from a Fraser effort. Keynsham skipper Rachel Stowell was very influential in midfield throughout and went very close with a 20-yard effort from a Rodriguez cross on 31 minutes.
 
Chesham frequently looked dangerous and were only denied the lead by an excellent double save from West, blocking an Adams shot and reacting quicly to tip over Fraser's follow up effort on 36 minutes. Rachel Cullen and Lapham were both denied by McGloin saves but it was Chesham who regained the lead on 43 minutes when Adams' low cross was expertly tucked away at the near post by Fraser.
 
Just when it seemed that Chesham would lead at the break, Lapham conjured up an opportunistic equaliser, hooking a loose ball over McGloin and in off the angle of post and bar to end an exciting 45 minutes.
 
Chesham's Adams twice tested West from distance in the opening minutes of the second half whilst Stowell was inches wide from a Rodriguez cross. Keynsham gained a crucial lead when the referee did well to allow play to continue after a foul on Stowell 25 yards from goal and the ball was spread wide right to Rusek who buried a powerful shot past McGloin just before the hour.
 
Keynsham added a fourth soon after when Lapham lobbed McGloin with a left footed effort from the edge of the area on 64 minutes.
 
Hard as Chesham battled, they were unable to stem the flow of attacks from the hosts. Markovic had a long range effort well held by McGloin whilst Lapham just failed to convert a low cross from Rusek as she slid in at the far post on 70 minutes.
 
Aimee Clark had a powerful 30 yards free kick which McGloin did well to kick away but it was the introduction of sub Hari Sabic which prompted a fifth goal. Played in by Stowell's through ball, Sabic rounded the keeper to ensure a Keynsham victory on 86 minutes.
 
This win, Keynsham's second of the campaign, was just reward for some highly entertaining football using the full width of the pitch and committing players to attack. Chesham played their full part, especially in the first half, despite having a depleted squad available and both teams will look to climb the table in the New Year. 
 
Keynsham Town: Gwyn West, Kierra Minall, Hannah Davies, Aimee Clark Sinead Melinn, Rachel Cullen, Julissa Rodriguez, Olivera Markovic, Leanne Lapham, Rachel Stowell, Katarzyna Rusek. Subs: Ellie Carter, Hari Sabic.
