The midweek goal-fest started after just 6 minutes when Katie destroyed the defence and smashed home. Minutes late Nicole and Ebony went close to doubling Guiseley’s lead. A swift counter attack by Ilkley looked dangerous and a superb one handed save by Georgia kept the visitors in the lead. Ilkley were on the attack again but this time strong defending by Ellen kept host at bay. With the size of the pitch and my poor eyesight i know Guiseley scored their second on 15 minutes, Katie’s shot with a follow up by Shona and Nicole – but not sure who hit the ball over the line first, but a great team attacking goal. Jess almost came close to grabbing Guiseley’s third with a cheeky lob, only to be foiled by the keeper. It was then Dels turn to try her luck, a great run down the wing only to find her shot go over the bar. The introduction of Lily down the flank paid dividends almost immediately with a excellent cross which found Jess who tapped in from Close range (0-3). A minute into the second half and Del grabbed the fourth. Minutes later Jasmine struck a 20 yarder which blasted against the crossbar – an effort worthy of a goal. Del, Ellen, Jess, Jaz, Ebs and Lily where all linking well in a great passing display by the blues and moments later a through ball from Katie saw Jess control the ball superbly and fire home Guiseley’s 5th – great goal. With the last passage of play by the blues Del fired in a cross which found Ebony who fired home Guiseley’s 6th. An all round great performance by the girls.
