Lincoln and Everton in stalemate - 2 May 2011 - Women's Football NewsLincoln Ladies 0 Everton 0
Lincoln Ladies and Everton are still looking for their first victories of the season after neither team could force the goal to break the deadlock, meaning a goalless draw gave both side the share of the points.
Everton kicked the game off starting brightly, attacking Nicola Hobbs' goal. However, Lincoln soon found their feet, and with that worked a few shooting opportunities of their own. Firstly, a cross from Jess Clarke on the right flank went undefended as it coasted through the Everton box before striking Danielle Hill's right hand post in the away team's goal.
The ball was then turned behind for a corner and from the resulting set piece, Sue Smith whipped the ball into the six yard box, which the Lady Imps' captain, Casey Stoney managed to head towards goal. Hill was at hand to keep the ball out though.
A few minutes later, Lincoln's goal threat took a blow as their only scorer of the season, Carla Cantrell pulled up with what looked to be a calf injury. She was replaced by Stacey Aisthorpe with less than quarter of an hour gone. By the half an hour mark though, it was Everton's turn to replace an injured player, as Fara Williams went down. Amy Kane came on in her place.
As the game progressed, so did the temperature. Tackles from both sides were flying in from all directions, leaving both sides with a booking each, Bonnie Horwood for the home side and the substitute, Amy Kane for Everton
The half time whistle came with only two real opportunities in total. Despite this though, the half was far from dull as the football being played was fluid at times.
The second half followed suit from the first half, with each team committing wholeheartedly to challenges. This gave the referee, Helen Fulcher a tough job as she tried to not to disrupt the flow of the game unnecessarily.
On 53 minutes, the first chance of the half came, as Natasha Dowie found herself with acres of space to run with the ball down the right wing, before she drilled the ball across the box before going behind for a goal kick.
Twenty minutes later, Everton had two opportunities in quick succession. Firstly, their captain, Jody Handley managed to get a quick shot off from inside the area, only for Hobbs to block. From the rebound, Toni Duggan pounced, but her shot went high over the bar from six yards out.
Despite the amount of chances the visitors were having, Lincoln were controlling the midfield, with player of the match, Sophie Walton making it difficult for the Everton team to play. Just before the 90 minutes were up though, Everton were able to get through one more time. This time, it was Duggan who went on an energetic run down the right flank before laying the ball off for Amy Kane to cross into the area. The ball was headed into the back of the net by Dowie, only for her to find herself staring down the flag of the assistant referee.
