Resolute Dev edge top two clash - 19 Oct 2014 - Women's Football NewsPetts Wood 0 AFC Wimbledon Development 1
The leading two clubs in the Greater London Womens League Division One table clashed at Petts Wood's Sparrows Den home but it was AFC Wimbledon Development who maintained their 100% record with a late goal to extend their lead over the hosts. 
In truth, the result was harsh on Petts Wood who had exerted continual pressure on the Dons goal through most of the match only to be defeated at the last by conceding a soft goal on a breakaway. Credit must go to a very solid Dons defence in a match of good quality in front of an enthusiastic crowd approaching three figures.
Terri Warren was a constant threat for Petts Wood in the first half, going close on three occasions with shots narrowly wide. The best move of the half saw Jade White release Frankie Mardon for a shot well saved by Ashleigh McGuigan. The Dons keeper was later injured and replaced by Jennie Ford who also played very well. Apart from a free kick pushed over by Natalie Graves and some fine runs from Megan Smith on the right wing, Wimbledon had created very few chances by half time.
Playing with the breeze in the second period Wood pressed on, inspired by Charlotte Lee in midfield and with Stacie Taylor strong in defence, the momentum was mainly towards the Wimbledon goal. However, the Dons defence was very well organised with sound tackling and covering.
Just when a draw seemed inevitable, Allana Ashmeil was sent clear on the right and her shot went through keeper Graves' hands for the winner on 88 minutes.
Petts Wood mounted a furious assault to try to save a point but the nearest they came was a 20-yard effort by Lee which clipped the outside of the post in the final seconds.
AFC Wimbledon Development have a big FA Women's Cup clash with FAWPL side Crystal Palace in two weeks time to savour, as well as a healthy position at the top of Division One table. Petts Wood gave a fine display and will surely maintain their position near the top if they continue to play in this manner.
