Tunbridge WellsÂ ladies’ first team secured a valuable home win against Bromley & Beckenham’s second team on Saturday.
Wells maintained a steady start to the match, playing safely and defending well.
Their captain, Jen Hunt, thought she had opened the scoring from a short corner straight strike – but it was disallowed for being too high.
The home side needed to increase their intensity in the second half and score some goals.
Taking a positive team talk on board, Hunt forgot her earlier disappointment to score from a straight strike on a short corner.
Wells then scored again, with Perdi Knight cracking her shot into the bottom left corner from a slipped ball across the D from Hunt.
Bertie Organ worked skilfully up the pitch from midfield using the strong defensive outlets in Amy Jones and Pip Ross to maintain composure.
There was some further gloss added to the result as Organ, who was named player of the match, moved into the D area and slipped the ball past the keepers’ pads to leave Wells with a well-deserved win.
