Chairgirls end season with narrow loss

Abingdon claim 4-2 win.

25 May 2021

The Chairgirls went into their last game of the season full of confidence having been unbeaten since the restart of the season and taking three points from close rivals Chesham last week, but ultimately went down 4-2 to Abingdon.

What can only be described as a bad day of the office saw Abingdon start fast and capitalize within five minutes, scoring passed keeper Lillie Eames into the far corner. The shock of the early goal woke Wycombe up and some good build up play saw Rohanna Myers run onto a through ball and shoot first time into the top corner on the 10 minute mark.

Wycombe were in the ascendency for the next 20 minutes showing signs of the usual quick, pass and move football resulting in shots from Amelia Gilbert, Kiyanna Fryer and midfielder Eve Savage all saved.

The sucker punch came in the 37th minute when Wycombe failed to clear their lines and Abingdon scored their second shooting high passed Eames.

Wycombe were 3-1 with almost the last kick of the first half, a very contentious free kick given on the edge of the error and some very sloppy defending allowed Abingdon to tap in their third before going in at the break.

Despite coming out for the 2nd half looking more like the team we have seen in recent weeks, Wycombe could not turn their possession into goals and in fact went 4-1 down in the 55th minute after a quick counter attack saw defender Eve Savage who made a fantastic effort to get back deflect the ball into her own net.

Wycombe continued to try playing positive passing football and saw an number of opportunities pass before defender Vikki Collett collected a pass from midfield, take the ball around two defenders a score in the bottom corner on the 65th minute.

The remainder of the game was played out goalless despite Wycombe doing all the running and creating a number of opportunities.

The Chairgirls will now take a well deserved break before starting pre-season in preparation of their first season in ladies football.
