The third meeting between the two team this season saw Woodley inflict only a second league defeat of the season on visiting Long Crendon in a match that the home team was good value for the three points.
The opening quarter of hour saw the home team enjoy the greater possession with Sarah Lawrence denied the opening goal in the fourteenth minute when visiting keeper Amy Whale tip the ball over the crossbar. Ellen Surtees took the resulting free kick, that Gemma Simms headed downwards in the visiting penalty area for substitute Lucy Routledge to steer the ball into the net with her first touch of the game on sixteen minutes.
Charley Evans made an excellent run from right back and her cross narrowly evaded the on coming Mollie Haines as United pushed for the second goal, which they scored four minutes from half time from another corner kick, which was taken by Maddie Sawyer and headed in determined fashion into the net by Michelle Quinn.
A minute into the second half Lawrence chipped the advancing Whale only to see a defender clear the goal bound effort. Haines struck the crossbar from a Sawyer pass with the third goal coming in the fifty third minute following good play from Woodley’s goal kick that saw the ball passed to Sawyer to find the bottom corner of the net from twenty five yards.
Long Crendon’s best chance came from a free kick in the sixty ninth minute which crashed of the home cross bar into play and cleared by the defence. Lawrence saw another goal bound shot cleared by a defender as Woodley maintained the pressure on the visitors and saw the game to full time and a six successive league clean sheet.
