Currently undefeated and top of their BUCS league, Women’s Football’s first team faced Portsmouth in the first round of the South Eastern Conference Cup this Bears day, and were keen to maintain their winning streak! There was no question it would be a fast paced game, with right midfielder Alicia Lyne making some impressive runs down the wing, and setting up a beautiful cross for striker Flora Green making it 1-0 to Holloway in the 22nd minute!
Krissie Glover set up Portsmouth’s subsequent own goal from an on point corner and went on to assist yet another Holloway goal placed neatly in the back of the net by Michelle Iversen Badiane in the second half! With Portsmouth having lost one of their best players to injury, as well as their keeper, who casually popped her shoulder back into place on the pitch, Holloway’s solid defensive line continued to catch them offside, allowing Cissy Radford to assist 3 additional goals for Holloway strikers Becky Ansell, Laura Davies, and centre midfielder Fern Colepio making the final result 6-0 to Royal Holloway! Women’s Football continue to walk on water, maintaining their undefeated record in BUCS, and are soon to face Roehampton’s first team in the next round of the cup. Special mention to woman of the match, Becky Ansell!
