The game promised to be fast & frenetic with Bays pumping long balls into their strikers at every opportunity. Play was pretty even in the early going but Bays managed to get a 1 on 1 with the keeper & slotted calmly in the corner.
So 1-0 for the hosts at the break.
Second half was even again but Bays striker (same #10) hit the underside of the bar & in to make it 2-0 early on. Not to be outdone the United women were much more physical & started pressing their opponents back. Wave after wave of attacks resulted in a number of great chances, including one that rattled the bar.
Eryn Freeman pulled one back to make it 2-1 from a corner, where she hit a sweet left foot from about 6 yards out.
Tails were up, more attacks, more chances but no equalizer as the Bays keeper made a couple of outstanding saves.
Meanwhile at the other end Bays still managed to carve out a few chances of their own, but Chloe stood her ground in the West's net to keep the game close.
All-in-all a really good game played with a lot of heart and commitment from both sets of players.
