Ladies win again

Title-winning Spurs Ladies beat Ebbsfleet 2-0 in the South-East Combination on Wednesday night.

The ladies wrapped-up the championship on Sunday but remain focused with a semi-final of the League Cup to follow on April 24.

Goals from Kelly Townsend and Emma Kayser in the second half secured the victory to move the ladies 10 points clear at the top.

Manager Karen Hills (pictured) said: "It was always going to be hard to try and motivate the girls after winning the league but they all know there is stilla job to do.

"They are also all still fighting for places to play in the League Cup semi-final."

Ebbsfleet United 0-2 Spurs Ladies

Spurs Ladies produced a champions-style performance - but had to wait until the second half for their rewards.

They dominated the first half but couldn't find the breakthrough as Ebbsfleet defended well.

Christina Oshodi came into the side and linked up with the wide players and Jenna Schillaci's deliveries were just missed by Rosi Webb and Robyn McEvoy.

Kelly Townsend came in for Rosi Webb at half-time and made an instant impact by heading home a corner for the opening goal.

Ebony Heath and Robin Downie dealt comfortably with what threat Ebbsfleet could muster going forward and it was left to a trademark free-kick from Emma Kayser to complete the scoreline.

Karen added: "I was very pleased with how the girls played, it was enjoyable to watch as they played with no fear and had the freedom in to try new things.

"It was also an opportunity for me to see a few of the other girls play that have been coming in an out of the side all season."
