Sporting Khalsa Women 4 – Bedworth United 1

Sporting Khalsa Women bounced back from the disappointment of their cup final defeat with a 4-1 victory against Bedworth United.

Kavanagh opened the scoring for Khalsa around 20 minutes in, but they were pegged back shortly after when Bedworth were given too much space to drive into the 18-yard box and get a shot off.  Kavanagh was in great form and following a well weighted pass from Stirrup from midfield lofted the keeper from out wide and made it 2-1 just before half-time.

Khalsa edged the second half and our pace in particular up front gave Bedworth huge problems. Morley’s persistence gave the home side their third when Bedworth failed to clear their lines and @handychloe cemented the victory with a tidy take and finish to make it 4-1.

Bedworth had their moments throughout the game, but Khalsa were in a determined mood and kept up the pressure on the visitors.  For Khalsa it was a good all round team performance, the girls adapted well to various changes, some forced and various players managed the game very well and were clinical in front of goal to leapfrog Bedworth and finish in fourth place in a very competitive league.

The ladies finished the season ten points better off and four places higher than the 2017/18 season.  They played two games fewer than last season and scored nine more goals.
