FOOTBALL - Rugby Borough Women hammered at home by Sedgley and Gornal

RUGBY BOROUGH WOMEN were hammered 6-2 at home by Sedgley and Gornal with Bailey Wiggett and Michelle Oldfield on target.


Wiggett opened the scoring for Borough when she closed down the play and robbed the last defender of possession before netting her first goal of the season.


However, Gornal found an equaliser before then taking the lead from the penalty spot which was calmly converted past goalkeeper Beth Daly as Rugby trailed 2-1 at the break.


Borough drew level early in the second-half when Oldfield nudged the ball over the line following a goalmouth scramble.


The visitors ran away with the game in the final 20 minutes as they scored four quickfire goals to inflict Borough’s heaviest defeat of the season.


And the result means Borough sit sixth in the West Midlands Regional Women’s Football League Division One South table.


Rugby are next in action at home to Knowle Ladies on Sunday, January 30 with kick-off at 2pm at Kilsby Lane.
