Bromley FC Girls’ Academy 

Chelsea FC Blenheim U19 Girls 

For the second time in five days the Chelsea girls had an away fixture to look forward to, traveling to our closest league opponents, Bromley FC. 

After winning on Friday, the girls were in good spirits and started the game well, keeping possession and breaking the lines of a deep sitting Bromley side, who were organised and ready to counter. 

It was against the run of play that Bromley opened the scoring after 20 minutes with a strong counter attack. The Blenheim girls were shell shocked and it was Bromley who scored again 8 minutes later with a good finish from distance after some strong work to win the ball in midfield. 

Blenheim kept probing and gained some composure back. Amie got Blenheim back into the game with a great looping finish after a corner broke to her on the edge of the box. It was 2-1 at half time and still all to play for as the second half started. 

Unfortunately, it was Bromley, who had grown in confidence, and who struck on 70 minutes as the Bromley striker slotted home after finding herself one on one with goalkeeper Lara. Five minutes later, Bromley pushed forward and added a fourth with 15 minutes to play. 

This goal changed the pattern of the game, with Bromley now happy to sit back and protect what they had. Three minutes after Bromley’s fourth goal, Kori won a penalty which Megan duly slotted home, and the comeback seemed on. With two minutes to go, Amiya scored a lovely goal from 15 yards out curling the ball past the Bromley goalkeeper. It was, however, too little too late, with Blenheim’s second loss in a week. 

Team: 

Lara, Exploit, Amiya, Hannah, Amie, Chinwendu, Caitlin, Etta, Saskia, Megan, Sasha, Leia, Kori.
