Derby joy for Albion

27 January 2019

Albion made it 11 league wins from 11 games with a solid 2-0 victory over Wolves Women in the FA Women’s National League Division One thanks to goals from Keeley Davies and Natalie Murray.

Over 350 spectators swarmed Boldmere St Michaels for the first Black Country Derby of the season as the Baggies earned the bragging rights thanks to the goals either side of half-time. 

But it was the visitors who came out of the blocks first as several chances from Tammi George and Jade Cross were denied by Scarlett Field, who was set to have a busy day in the Albion net.

The first goal of the game came on the 37th minute after Keeley Davies got on the end of a scrappy clearance from the Wolves defence and fired into the bottom right-hand corner.

This meant that Louis Sowe’s side were currently six points clear at the top of the table with Wolves wanting to narrow that gap, but it was Murray who settled the victory with a fine finish shortly into the second-half.

Harriet James found Murray in space at the edge of the 18-yard area and the winger curled home a sublime finish to confirm all three points for the Baggies.

ALBION: Field, Jewitt, George (c), Harper, Orthodoxou, Baines, Murray, K.Davies, James (L.Price 69), L.Davies, Reid.

Substitutes: Sinclair, Johnston, Bevan, J.Davies.
