THE Blues travelled away to Bridgwater for there second game of the season and manager Craig Stuckey was looking for the same result as last week and another three points.

Ilminster looked lively from the start with great work from the midfield which was trying to create some chances.

The Blues soon scored their first goal by captain Alice Charlton when she took a ball from Bridgwater and went at goal alone. Ilminster’s talented new signing, keeper Abbi Bond, was tested a few times by the Bridgwater strikers and she pulled off some great shot stopping saves to keep her team in the game.

Ilminster’s back four of Andrews, Jennings, Parson and Phillips looked very strong in the opening half.The Blues gained a lot of confidence from the opening goal and passed the ball amongst them all over the pitch for a few minutes.

Great creative play came from the likes of Frost, Miller, Hookings and Rowe who combined well with the strikers which led to a handball in the area by a Bridgwater defender.

Defender Hayley Phillips stepped up to take the penalty and slotted in a well placed spot kick to put Ilminster 2-0 up.

Ilminster were feeling comfortable with their lead and became too relaxed.

This led to a loss of concentration and discipline throughout the whole team and because of this Bridgwater got back two sloppy goals just before halftime.

Manager Stuckey was disappointed with the halftime result after the Blues were leading the game most of the half.

A few choice words were spoken in the interval and Ilminster came out for the second period raring to go.And although they were dominating proceedings, they could not find a third goal.

But in the latter part of the second-half, midfielder Anne Read was brought down on the edge of the box and won a free-kick for Ilminster.

With eight minutes to go Jenny Frost stepped up and took the free kick for the Blues.

Frost put over a lovely floating ball in to the box where fellow central midfielder, Sarah Miller popped up to score a cracking header and win the game for her team.
