Baggies beaten at Guiseley

16 April 2018

ALBION suffered a 3-2 defeat away to Guiseley Vixens in the FA Women's Premier League Northern Division on Sunday.

In a repeat of last weekend's fixture with Middlesbrough, the Baggies fought back from behind twice - this time courtesy of a Jennifer Kikomeko brace - before Nikki Berko's winning strike fifteen minutes from time won it for the hosts.

Both sides created chances in the opening exchanges with Albion's best opportunity falling to Nicole Dale who's shot from an angle was well gathered by Lauren Joyce.

Yet it was Guiseley who took the lead in the 34th minute when Ellie Olds' 25-yard volley looped over Vanessa Kinnerley.

Two minutes before the break, Albion were level when Dale's shot was parried into the path of Kikomeko who made no mistake to tap home the rebound.

Despite a strong start to the second half from the Baggies, Louis Sowe's side fell behind in the 56th minute when Lucy Finch diverted an O'Hara corner past her own goalkeeper Kinnerley.

Just ten minutes later Albion were back on level terms when Kikomeko converted from the spot after Natasha Merritt's 18-yard effort had appeared to strike a Guiseley player's hand.

In the 75th minute Albion's hopes of a point were dashed when Berko slotted home to win it for Guiseley.

ALBION: Kinnerley, H.Price (L.Price 84), Finn, Merritt, Finch, Burton (c), Murray, Fellows, Kikomeko, Davies (James 70), Dale.

Subs: Stamps.

Albion are back in action on Sunday, 22nd April in the FA Women's Premier League Northern Division when they make the trip to Bradford City Women (ko 2pm).
