PNE Ladies take on top of the league Penrith

Preston North End Ladies have been in good form recently, winning their last three games and moving away from the foot of the table. Today’s visitors Penrith AFC Ladies have also been going great guns and are unbeaten this season – something had to give down at the UCLan arena.

The match proved to be a fantastic game of football, both sides 100 percent committed to the cause.  It was a game of contrasting styles. Preston playing a really good passing game while Penrith relied heavily on the long ball game. It’s a tactic that works well for them and it was Penrith who broke the deadlock against the run of play.

Preston had been playing the better football and they continued to do so, equalising with a shot from the edge of the box before half time. It was richly deserved.

The second half continued as the first. Penrith continued to work hard and got a second to take the lead, again somewhat against the run of play.  Preston continued to push forward, never giving up but Penrith extended their lead and made it three with the last kick of the game.

Well done to both teams on a great game of football. Preston played the better football and deserved to get something from the game but it was Penrith who stole the points, continuing their unbeaten run.
