Winn wins it for Laxey

Winn wins it for Laxey - 1 Oct 2008 - Women's Football NewsWith Michael Utd still looking for their first win for over a year in the Isle of Man League, they showed signs of promise but could not find the decisive attacking edge of that bit of luck so often required in matches like these.
With the match goalless at the interval, it was Dawn Winn, who has flourished since her transfer from Royal to Laxey, who fired home a second half brace to ensure the Miners' first victory of the campaign.
Michael Utd started the encounter more determined, having extended spells in their opponents' half and dinking through balls but created little up front. Winn however was always going to be a constant threat with her space, twice breaking away from the opposing defensive rearguard but she was denied by the framework on both occasions and Kate Connell was called into action, saving at the feet of Kelly Barlow.
Bekki Simpson mustered the Balleira Road's first clear cut opportunity when her shot from an acute angle was denied by Lawson's outstretched palm and they came close again after the interlude, a testing Jennie Davies' corner was glanced wide by Haley Jones.
Michael's luck started to run out when their goal was finally breached on 54 minutes. Barlow's dipping shot was parried by Connell at full stretch, Louise Smith kept the attack alive, her cut back perfectly teeing up Winn to slot home an easy chance.
Midway through the second half, Connell was alert again following a corner kick as Christine Sutton's low drive was denied by the goalkeeper's legs.
With Michael opting for a 3-4-3 formation in the closing stages in search of the equaliser, it was the hosts who secured matters before full time. Winn broke from the halfway line and, despite the close attentions and being under pressure from Davies, she kept her composure before rolling the ball into the bottom left hand corner.
Corinthians clocked up the biggest win of the afternoon, defeating Peel 15-0. Jade Burden (5), Lauren Christian (5), Helen Thomas (3), Sarah O'Reilly and Anna Dillon were all on target for the Noble's Park outfit.
Castletown continue to impress with a 5-1 over Ramsey. The northerners took the lead when Emma Cottier received a through ball to slot home with Justine Carran equalising for the Reds before half time. Donna Ashworth converted a scrambled effort as the visitors took a second half lead before Tricia Fleming fired home a brace and Ashworth netted again following a melee.
Douglas Royal continued their excellent start with a 9-1 win over a resilient Colby. Royal opened the scoring through Bekki Cole who rifled home and she made it 2-0, converting following Sarah Breen's cross.  Donna Shimmin lifted a shot over the advancing Monika Gale to make it 3-0 and she grabbed her brace, beating a defender to score. Breen tapped home before half time when a corner was not dealt with by the Colby defence. Leanne Ashe's shot rebounded off the post and went in for the first goal of the second half with Orna Lynch poking home to make it 7-0. Kym Hicklin netted their eighth when a corner was not cleared, before Colby's consolation came as Andrea Lace cleared the ball into her own net. Hicklin rounded off the scoring of the afternoon when she latched onto Cole's corner.
Rushen Utd continued the pressure on the chasing pack with a 5-0 success against Gymnasium. They took the lead on the stroke of half time when Donna Harrison's pass freed Eleanor Gawne on the right and homing in towards the Gymnasium goal to net the opener. Harrison then scored a brace after the interval with Dawn Georgeson heading home Rushen's fourth. Harrison completed her hat-trick when she cut in from the left and netted at the near post.
