The Owls welcomed Harrogate Railway Ladies to Bawtry road for the first league game of the season with both teams christening the new temporary pitch alongside the club house (Rugby 1)

A slow start for the ladies with Harrogate starting the stronger and scoring twice on 6 and 22 minutes. It was half n hour before our lot woke up with Liv Murray having a shot saved on 29 minutes, Jess Morrison through on goal in the 31st minute but putting her shot wide. it was Jess who scored our first on 37 minutes slotting the ball past the keeper and then Demi West was brought on as a sub and after being out of football and having little baby Ella less than 6 weeks ago scored with her very first touch after great work out wide from Emily Higgins and the ball passed to Demi on the edge of the box. Keeper Michelle Stephens pulled off a great save pushing the ball round the post to keep the score level.

Half Time: 2-2

The Owls dominated the second half with Sophie Eyre missing a penalty, having a header cleared off the line and a goal chalked off for offside after a great effort from Jodie Stancill. Emily Higgins unlucky not to have two goals and Jess also rounding the keeper but putting wide. The game was finally put to bed and all 3 points claimed when a great ball from Molly Corke set up Jess to slot past the keeper for 3-2 full time.

Manager Dave Higgins: A poor first half n hour where we were fast asleep, but great recovery and the girls dominated the 2nd half and could've won by another 3 or 4 goals. Great to see Demi back in the team and scoring with her first touch. A great start for what will be a tough season.

Next week its the short journey to face Hepworth for the 2nd time in a month after the earlier 2-0 league cup victory.
