Lockdown Cup (South West)
Bristol Ladies Union staged a second half fightback to come from behind to beat Almondsbury 3-1 in the Final at Oaklands Park.
The clash between the two group winners was as tight as expected but it was Almondsbury who had the better of the first half as they settled down the quicker of the two teams. The pace of Emma Summerill up front was troubling the Union defence at this stage and this brought its reward three minutes before half time, when Union lost possession in their own half and after being played in, Summerill crashed a shot into the roof of the net to give 'Bury the lead.
The game changed after the break as Union pushed further forward but the Almondsbury defence, well marshalled by Mollie Jones in the centre, stood firm under the early pressure. However just after the hour, the scores were levelled as Hannah Price escaped her marker in the area and poked a deflected shot past Sophie Cooper for the equaliser. BLU were now starting to dominate the midfield area and the goalscorer's speed was a constant threat up front. The chance came for Union to take the lead when Myca Jefferis was upended in the area and Stella Gandee-Morgan stepped up to send Cooper the wrong way from the penalty spot and put her side ahead for the first time. Almondsbury began to tire as the game wore on as they tried to get back in the game but were kept at bay, with Aoife Condron having a fine match at the back, before BLU crowned the win in style as Ellie Strippel thumped in an unstoppable 25-yard shot which found the top corner.
