Sarah the last gasp heroine

Sarah the last gasp heroine - 26 Sep 2008 - Women's Football NewsJust when their southern encounter in the Isle of Man was heading for a draw, Castletown's Sarah Denny, as on so many previous occasions, netted the winner for her side with only five minutes remaining, thus securing a 2-1 victory over Colby. 
With two wins out of two, Dave Hattersley's side must be enduring vertigo scaling the higher reaches of the league pyramid and sees them looking down on both of their southern rivals.
Both teams that have done much to encourage youth in recent years and it was two of Castletown's young guns who put in performances worthy of note - Justine Carran, who has only played her second senior match, has scored three goals and Charlie Watson, who excelled at left back.
Colby played the first half with only ten players but fought with steely grit and determination, Castletown made numerical advantage count and came close with Sarah Jackson and Sarah Denny lifting efforts wide and Monika Gale collecting Trica Fleming's long range strike. Nikki Cooil mustered Colby's first chance when she got between Town's central defensive pairing but narrowly steered her shot wide.
Just when the first half was looking goalless, it was the visitors who broke the deadlock. Stacey Kelly's long ball saw Gale rush out and meet the danger only for defender Nikki Cain to snatch the ball, her clearance fell into the path of Justine Carran and she rolled it into an empty net.
After the break, Louise Corkish made up the full starting complement for Colby and the new introduction making an instant impact. She had a powerful shot that was blocked followed by a goal line cross finding Leadbeater who headed over. A few moments later, she was at the other end, clearing Fleming's dipping goalbound effort. Leadbeater came close again, her effort was headed clear by Donna Primrose-Smith with the Reds replying when Gale collected Sharon Whitehouse's ambitious 35-yard effort.
On 67 minutes, Colby levelled matters. A move on the left involving Emma Gill and Corkish found Leadbeater who, given time and space, drove a low shot that beat Coulthurst's stretch and found the bottom left hand corner.
As the match drew to a close, the Reds got their winner. Rachel Gawne needlessly handled to concede a free kick from which Denny's effort bounced over the defensive wall, Gale went rushing off her line to collect the danger but the ball hit a divot before spinning over her and nestling into the roof of the net.
Rushen Utd claimed their first win of the season with a 6-0 success over Peel. Dawn Georgeson opened the scoring from the penalty spot with newcomers Sammie MacDonald and Siobhan Lockwood scoring her first goals for the new club. Donna Harrison netted their fourth with Lockwood completing her brace before Eleanor Gawne rounded off the scoring.
Gymnasium clocked up their first victory of the new campaign, 2-1 over Laxey, although Laxey did give their opponents a scare as they took a first half lead when Dawn Winn weaved her way through defence and beat the advancing Rose Ozga at the near post. Gymnasium levelled matters after the break when Dawn Quinn's cross found Angela Quest who tapped home at the far post and Quinn went on to drive home the winner with a 20-yard strike.
Douglas Royal clocked up the biggest win of the season so far by defeating Michael Utd 14-0. Donna Shimmin fired home a first half hat-trick with Bekki Cole's left flank strike to clock up a 4-0 half-time lead. Sarah Breen slotted home their fifth with Shimmin heading home to make it 6-0. Sammy Jordan netted her first goal for the club with a cross-shot, with Orna Lynch tapping in a rebound. Leanne Ashe smashed home the ninth with Cole getting her brace moments later with a neat finish. Shimmin got her fifth via another header and Vicky Worthington made an impact with her first appearance in over a year for the club by grabbing a hat-trick in the last ten minutes.
