Bleazard blows away Bees
 Women's Football News 25 Aug 2014
London Bees 0 Yeovil Town 2 (Bleazard 74,80)
Yeovil Town came away with all three points at The Hive on Sunday as they won 2-0 against London Bees. 
The game hung in the balance with just a quarter of an hour left on the clock, but the home side were ultimately undone by two moments of magic from the Glovers' Helen Bleazard in the closing stages.
It was Lucy Loomes who had the first real chance of the game for the Bees on ten minutes when she was played through by Amber Gaylor but goalkeeper Rachel Simkin came out quickly to smother her shot from just inside the area.
Yeovil countered immediately and this time it was Sophie Harris who was called into action, rushing out to block Bleazard's shot with her trailing leg.
There was a moment of panic for the Bees after 19 minutes when Harris collected what was adjudged to have been a back pass from Anneka Nuttall, leading Yeovil to be awarded an indirect free kick just inside the penalty area. It was taken twice after Paula Howells was penalised for encroaching too early, but the second attempt from Bleazard flew well over the bar.
Three minutes later it was Nuttall who came to the rescue, making a superb clearance at the back post to avert the danger caused by an excellent cross from Bleazard, in the thick of the action once again, after she had been played in behind by Katie Cook.
The Bees were creating chances of their own however, with Amber Gaylor going close midway through the first half with a fierce shot towards the top corner from the corner of the box which Simkin was forced to tip over for a corner. The home side were looking particularly dangerous on the break, with Simkin being called into action once again to clear a pass played through by Dawn Mallett for Loomes into the stands.
It was Mallett herself who went close on 37 minutes, winning possession high up the pitch before unleashing a dipping shot which flew narrowly over the bar.
The Bees came out of the traps quickly for the second half and nearly took the lead just a minute after the interval when Loomes cut inside the defender following Mallett's through ball but saw her shot saved by Simkin.
It was Yeovil who came the closest to breaking the deadlock on 62 minutes, when Sarah Wiltshire was played in behind the Bees defence, but Sophie Harris produced a superb save to tip the Welsh international's shot onto the bar.
Yeovil did however make the breakthrough on 74 minutes, when Bleazard collected the ball deep and twisted her way past two markers before sending a right footed shot past Harris and into the bottom left-hand corner to make it 1-0.
The Glovers would double their lead on 80 minutes, with Bleazard producing another moment of magic as she retrieved the ball after being dispossessed and sent a curling shot into the top corner of the net from all of 25 yards.
Yeovil nearly scored a third with just three minutes remaining after Harris got a fingertip to a fierce strike from early replacement Paige Stewart, before another substitute in Jemma Tewkesbury somehow managed to put the rebound wide from just a few yards out.
That proved to be the last moment of note for either side as Yeovil move to fourth in the table, following two wins on the bounce.
London Bees: Sophie Harris, Paula Howells, Billie Brooks, Samantha Chappell, Anneka Nuttall, Amy Cooper, Rebecca Anderson (sub Emma Davies 88mins), Amber Gaylor (sub Shanade Hopcroft 75mins), Dawn Mallett, Megan Goss, Lucy Loomes (sub Sydney Hinchcliffe 75mins).

Yeovil Town: Rachel Simkin, Kirsty Whitton, Jade Kirby, Shauna Cossens (sub Paige Stewart 24mins), Rachael Edwards, Natalie Haigh, Helen Bleazard, Jade Radburn-Lorton, Katie Cook (sub Vera Bernabe Payol 70mins), Sarah Wiltshire (sub Jemma Tewkesbury 82mins), Ellie Curson.
