SALISBURY Women FC still remain unbeaten in the league as they visited Melksham Town Ladies FC on Sunday and came away with a well earned point, to remain top of the table.

The Whites started slowly, going down 1-0 in the first five minutes of the game. However, they soon picked their heads up and found their rhythm, passing the ball, slotting it through to Zoe Ridley who swept in the equaliser soon after.

This lifted the team and and it gave them the confidence to push forward and create more chances.

Salisbury’s keeper Summer Williams made some great saves in the first half.

The second half started just as quick as the first with Salisbury taking the lead this time from a great through ball from Sophie Taylor to Ridley who slotted home.

But their lead did not last long as unfortunately Shannon Jacques put the ball into her own net. Salisbury kept on battling and were in search of another goal, crosses were being delivered, and shots were fired at the Melksham keeper, but with no end product. But it was Ridley who did find the back of the net, having beaten the last defender she struck a sweet strike into the top corner.

But again the celebrations were short lived as with almost the last kick of the game, Melksham were awarded a corner, they filled the box and one of their players were able to get a foot on the ball which saw it trickle into the back of Salisbury’s net making it a tense and nail biting finish with the final score being 3-3.

Salisbury’s next game is at home to Trowbridge Town Ladies FC, who are also unbeaten in the league having won all four of their opening games which is on Sunday, October 15, 2pm kick off at Victoria Park.
