All three of Reigate Women FC’s teams – the Panthers, Tigresses and Lionesses – were in action in February’s round of games in the seven-a-side Surrey FA Flexible League.
The Panthers got their first win in the competition as they beat Woking Diamonds 4-2, in an away match.
The side were keen to get a result, after a disappointing first game in the league, and worked to create goal scoring opportunities early on.
The breakthrough eventually came with a Becca Nesbitt goal. The Woking Diamonds quickly pulled one back, before a strike from Charlotte Mckeon saw the Panthers back in the lead just before half time.
The second half continued to provide plenty of excitement for the Panthers and more goals as Becca Nesbitt completed her hat-trick after a dominant performance in midfield.
Woking managed to reduce the deficit late on after some great play however Reigate stood firm with a player of the match performance from defender Caro Rosenkranz.
The win sees the Panthers move up the table into 5th with two games in hand.
The Tigresses knew they were in for a tough game against the Sheen Mounties in Chiswick, as the Lionesses had a hard-fought win against the same side in December.
Tigresses’ striker Sarah Gott managed to put them into a 1-0 half-time lead, but Sheen Mounties dominated the second half, eventually running out 3-1 winners. The result drops the Tigresses to sixth place.
Also in Chiswick, the Lionesses extended their lead at the top of the table as well as their unbeaten record, with a 6-0 win over ESPS Phoenix.
An exciting first half saw the Lionesses go 4-0 up at half time with a debut goal from Misha West, a stunning strike from Steph Thorbes and two goals from Libby Moy.
The second-half had Libby Moy complete her hat-trick while Jenna Chisholm completed the scoring with her own debut goal.
The next round of matches will be played this Sunday 10 March 2019.
