Olton 7 Telford & Wrekin 3 (Saturday)

WITH Olton already promoted from the WM Premier League, and Telford safe in mid-table, on paper there was little to play for - both sides failing to take a hold of the game. Olton managed an early goal through Eddie James but Telford got back into the game moments later with a neat equaliser.

In the second half the game completely opened up. Olton sailed away to a 5-1 lead with goals from Daniel Sulway, Sam, Jack and Tom Mallett, before Telford hit one back in reply through Olton old boy Ian Armstrong.

Chris George then scored for Olton before Telford again scored another moments later, but Olton’s Gus Grieve wrapped things up with a late seventh goal.

The almost inevitable equaliser came just one minute later through Kerry Williams. This lifted the Leicester girls and they began to control the pace of the game, scoring goals through Katie Long, Hannah Smith and Williams.

As Olton tired in the second half, their opponents took advantage and scored further goals through Williams (2), Christa Cullen and Vanessa Hawkins.
