Sky Blues under-14s turn on the style in 14-goal rout

Ben Tyler 25th Sep, 2019

RELENTLESS Coventry City under-14s put 13 goals past Solihull Moors to stand tall at the top of the Coventry & Warwickshire Girls Football League.

The result makes it 23 goals scored from the Sky Blues’ opening three fixtures, with Georgia and Bamba both hitting hat-tricks.

Clearly lifted by their 7-0 victory over Boldmere Falcons, Coventry kicked off their first home game looking sprightly.

It was no surprise then, when the deadlock was broken just five minutes into the game, courtesy of Georgia’s first of the afternoon.

A six-goal spree then followed in the space of just 15 minutes, with Alex, Mary-Ellen, Bamba, a brace from Harriet and a second of the game for Georgia putting the Sky Blues in a commanding lead.

There was still time for a second from Bamba to close off the half with an 8-0 lead.

Despite the clear advantage, Coventry were not content with resting on their laurels and went in search of further goals.

Instead, the Moors pulled a goal back to make their mark, albeit a small one, on the scoreline.

A change of formation back to their original set-up continued the stream of goals, with a cross from Harriet being turned into the back of the net by a Moors defender.

Coventry soon took the scoreline into double figures through Katie’s second goal of the afternoon, before Georgia and Bamba wrapped up their hat-tricks to wrap up proceedings.

The girls return to action on Saturday, October 5 (10.30am) with a home game against Hawkes Mill Juniors.
