Aylesbury United Ladies travelled to Summertown Stars for a mid-table clash on a cold Sunday afternoon. As the table suggested the teams were well matched and the game turned out that way. Summertown started the better team and put Aylesbury United on the back foot without really making any chances and the Aylesbury defence stood firm with their keeper, Gemma Warner, mopping up any loose balls. Aylesbury grew into the game though and made some good chances, mainly from corners, but couldn't come up with a goal and the first half finished all square.
The second half continued in a similar way but Aylesbury changed formation after 15 minutes, pushing another player up front and this paid off after just five minutes. A long ball forward by Gemma in the Aylesbuy goal was nodded on by Amber CHALMERS up front to her new strike partner Kayleigh Mott who went past the keeper and finished calmly into the goal to make it 1-0. However they could not keep the lead and just nine minutes later a ball forwarded was collected by the Summertown striker who outpaced the defence and slotted it past the keeper. There were not many more chances and the game finished 1-1 which was probably a fair result. Kayleigh Mott was the player-of-the-match for her goal and her overall play both on the wing and upfront.
