Archant

Barking & Dagenham’s district girls made it two wins and two clean sheets with a comfortable 3-0 victory over South London.

Buoyed by their 8-0 success over Jo Richardson School, they took th e lead in the fifth minute when captain Emily Brown was tripped in the box and fired home the penalty.

Brown turned provider seven minutes later when her slide-rule pass behind the South London rearguard sent Ellie Mai Morgan clear through on goal.

With the keeper advancing off her line, Morgan arrowed the ball into the same corner as Brown to double the lead.

The result was put beyond doubt five minutes before half-time when Grace Young’s quickly taken throw-in set Brown off once again and her speculative drive was spilled by the visiting keeper for Miquellah Meade to steal in and convert the loose ball from two yards out.

In the second half, Barking & Dagenham had plenty of opportunities to add to their lead.

Morgan went close twice in the first minute after the restart and Brown’s shot from long-range was tipped on to the bar moments later.

Kayla Grain and Ianna Msekwa took it in turns to maraud forward from the back and both tested the keeper with well-struck efforts.

Young, Brown and Morgan could all have added to the tally, however the final result was never in doubt as Barking & Dagenham dominated both territory and possession.

Barking & Dagenham: Emily Brown (Godwin); Kayla Grain (Richard Alibon); Miquelleh Meade (Henry Green); Ellie Mai Morgan (Henry Green); Ianna Msekwa (George Carey); Maria Omotayo (Roding); Grace Young (Hunters Hall).
