LEAGUE – HTWFC AWAY TO WEST BROMWICH

15th March 2020
West Bromwich Albion 4 – 2 Huddersfield Town Women

HTWFC vs West Bromwich 15-03-20

A poor second half performance saw Town slip to a league defeat away to West Bromwich Albion.

Albion started the stronger and put Town’s goal under early pressure with their right winger Natalie Murray causing havoc down Town’s left side. Town appeared to have weathered the early storm but then in the 22nd Tash Tezgel scored with a shot after Town failed to clear their lines from a corner.

Town thought that they had equalised with 34 minutes gone when Sarah Danby poked the ball home from close range only to be denied by the assistant referee’s flag for offside.

Town were getting more into the game and drew level in the 38th minute when a Mallin corner was headed home by top scorer Lucy Sowerby and, things got even better for Town when following another corner Vicky Abbott scored her first of the season, poking the ball home following a goal mouth scramble in the final minute of the half.

Half time 1-2

Sowerby could have put Town two goals clear early in the second half but was denied by a good save from the keeper.

Town’s lead survived for 16 minutes of the half as Albion pressure finally told and they equalised with a header.

Things went from bad to worse when they took the lead again with 20 minutes remaining with another header from a set piece.

Town huffed and puffed for the remainder of the game and were undone once again with four minutes left as a quick break found their player unmarked in the box and she finished off the scoring to make it 4-2.

A disappointing performance from Town who don’t have to wait long for their chance of redemption. They travel to 5th placed Burnley on Wednesday, 7.45pm kick off, and then on Sunday are away again, this time to 2nd placed Derby County, 2pm ko.

14th March 2020
Huddersfield Town 6 – 0 Sheffield United

HTWFC U16's Cup Final Winners - 14-03-20

After a nervous and hesitant performance in the first-half, Town stepped up the tempo after the break to destroy the visitors resistance with some scintillating football and clinical finishing to win the cup in style.

The first goal of the game came in the 48th minute when Town broke in to the box and the unfortunate Blades defender, attempting to prevent the ball reaching a free attacker, knocked the ball into an empty net.

Impressive Tegan Stewart-Pybus headed  home from Gaby Pearson’s cross to calm Town’s nerves on 58 minutes.

Five minutes later, the game was put beyond the visitors’ reach when Laura Hulme smashed home the excellent Alex Mckie’s pass.

On 66 minutes player of the match Alyssa Valenti latched on to Pearson’s pass to ride two tackles before driving home from 12 yards.

In the 70th minute Isobella Kington was played in by Madison Rodd to calmly slot the ball into the bottom corner.

In the final minute Kington set up Hulme, who completed her double with a superb finish to complete the rout.

The referee’s player of the match was Laura Hulme.

U14’s CUP FINAL – Extra Time blow gives opposition the win.

14th March 2020
TOWN WOMEN U14’S 2 – 4 MILLMOOR JUNIORS

HTWFC U4s - Cup Final - 14-03-20

The Under 14s stumbled at the last hurdle in the cup final against Millmoor but played superbly in a fantastic advert for the game.

The sides had met twice already this season and after both of those games were extremely close, the third encounter of the season was no different.

Both teams started strongly with both teams putting in big hits on each other in the tackle for the entirety of the game.

Town took the lead on 20 minutes when Hannah Burgess curled a Beckham like free kick in at the near post.

Millmoor fought back and fired wide of the target a couple of times but the first half ended with neither side being given any half chances.

HT: 1-0

The physical and fair battle continued and Millmoor found an equaliser 15 minutes after the break. Town failed to clear their lines on 3 or 4 occassions and the ball fell nicely for the Millmoor striker to stab home.

Town hit straight back as 5 minutes later Firth went on a run down the left, beat the full back and squares to Burgess who strolled the ball into the bottom corner left footed.

Hall and Harris both had chances to put the game to bed but the Millmoor keeper (who was MOM) pulled off a series of spectacular saves and clearances to keep her side in it.

Going into the final minute, disaster struck for Town when a cross come shot wasn’t dealt with after a communication mix up and the ball trickled in off the back post.

FT: 2-2

The late goal clearly took its toll and hurt Town who failed to recover from the blow as Millmoor struck 2 goals in quick succession. Town had nothing left in their tank but fought to the end in another game against the reds that couldve gone either way.

AET: HTWFC 2-4 Millmoor
Scorers: Burgess x2
MOM: Charlie Ramsden

UNDER 10’s LEAGUE CUP: U10’s claim the 2019/20 Cup!

14th March 2020
Handsworth Juniors 1 – 2 Huddersfield Town U10’s

HTWFC -Under 10s - Cup Winners 2019-20

Having got to the Cup Final last year and finishing with only a runners up medal, Town U10’s entered the 2019/20 Cup Final knowing what they had to do.

With the game barely started – both teams created early chances, but the finish eluded both teams.

6 mins in and Izzy Cleverley got the best of the early chances, only to have it stopped by the Handsworth goalie.

Following that save, Town began to see more of the play and it was 21 mins when Alysia Singh got the ball through to Harriet Oldfield, who side stepped the defender, and made sure her shot went into the back of the net and opening the scoring for Town. 0-1

Handsworth responded immediately and if it wasn’t for a great save from Maddie Hamilton, the opposition would have clawed one back.

Although both teams tried to look for another goal, the goalkeepers at each end did their part and stopped the score line progressing.

Half-Time 0-1

Second half and Handsworth were again immediately on the attack, but Hamilton was as quick to react with another save early on.

The opposition kept up the attack as Town stood their ground with some great defensive plays from Ellie Adams and Holly Wilkinson. Town also had their chances but Handsworth’s goalie was on top form.

37 mins – Handsworth were through on goal but Hamilton was there to pull off another great save, however 2 mins later and another quick charge from Handsworth saw the ball roll into the box and an easy tap in, off a Handsworth player, had Town watch the ball roll over the line for the equalizer. 1-1

Town didn’t let the set-back get to them, instead they got straight back into the game taking the game to Handsworth.

42 mins – and close to looking like the game may go into extra time, Cleverley got the ball out on the left, passing the players ahead of her, and getting a run on goal followed by a strike across the goal, that went beyond the goalies reach, into the top right corner. 1-2

With only a few minutes remaining, Town settled in and played out the remainder of the game stopping Handsworth at every opportunity and taking the deserved win.

Final score: 1-2

Overall – The girls performed well in all areas of the pitch giving Handsworth a tough time in taking control of the game. Hamilton was strong in goal, scuppering the few chances Handsworth had when they got through on goal.  Adams and Wilkinson were solid in defence stopping Handsworth’s charges on goal. Clarke, Oldfield, Cleverley and Singh worked through mid-field and attack creating chances and getting the two goals. Substitutes Ward, Clayton and Hackney came on and maintained the strong team tactics to ensure that Town stayed in control for the remainder of the game.

U14’s LEAGUE: Town take three points away to Crosspool.

7th March 2020
Crosspool 0 – 4 Huddersfield Town

HTWFC U14s vs Crosspool - 070320

The under 14s battled hard in muddy conditions to earn 3 points away at Crosspool.

The Greens were dogged as always and came out to defend everything thrown st them.

Amber Ford twice got on the end of 2 Ramsden corners but the keeper saved well on both occasions.

Harris and Holmes caused the defence havoc with their link up play but just couldn’t find that extra half yard to get efforts away on goal. A goalmouth scramble saw Town hit the bar and Turner fired tamely at the keeper from the edge of the box, however the deadlock was broken on 22 minutes. Radley intercepted superbly at the back and fed Firth on the wing, some good trickery from the winger was followed up by a 35 yard cross field switch where Burgess was waiting, took 2 touches and scuffed a strike goalwards and the keeper fumbled it into the net.

3 minutes later Firth got a goal of her own after great footwork from Turner on the left, crossed for the winger to slot home from 6 yards.

Just before half time Firth again turned provider after seeing her goal bound effort put into the net by a Crosspool defender.

HT: 0-3

HTWFC U14s vs Crosspool - 070320

As the pitch continued to deteriorate, the chances came few and far between in the second half.

Town were awarded a penalty after Holmes darting run into the box saw her dragged down by an opposition player. Turner stepped up and struck the ball brilliantly only to be denied by a top class save towards the top corner by the Greens keeper.

Town made sure of the points 12 minutes from the end when Harris struck well from 8 yards to put the game beyond reach.

Full Time: Crosspool 0 – 4 HTWFC
Scorers: Burgess, Firth, Harris, OG
MOM: Jess Radley
