SSE Women’s FA Cup 1st Qualifying Round Report
The Ladies took on Mansfield Town Ladies FC on a hot and sunny Sunday afternoon at the Meadows Sport Ground.
The Ladies began brightly and dominated possession against the visitors from the East Midlands Premier Division. Goals from Freya Gardner and Sophie Tew gave Oadby & Wigston an early lead. A lengthy stoppage following a clash of heads took away the Ladies momentum and Mansfield pulled a goal back before half-time with a well taken finish.
Mansfield applied pressure following the break and scored an equaliser, however this gave the Ladies a shake up and they took control of the game as the players tired. Late goals from Emily Sowler and a superb solo effort from Emma Aspinall secured a well deserved 4-2 victory.
The Ladies will now take on Sutton Coldfield in the 2nd Qualifying Round on September 23rd at the MSG 2pm kick off. Please come and support the Ladies on the ‘Road to Wembley’.
