This week, Writtle University College's (WUC's) Leyton Orient Female Football Academy took part in their hardest-fought match to date. Their recent Cup game finished with a score of 9-1 to Seevic, leaving them more determined than ever to bounce back. 

The game began with a strong start from WUC striker Jessica Musk. Her 18-yard top right corner goal, through ball assisted by Kaci Crook, took place within the first 7 minutes.

A few minutes later Seevic were on the attack, resulting in a good finish from their number 10 in the bottom left corner.

The pressure started to mount but WUC goalkeeper Tahani kept her cool and made fantastic saves.

However, Seevic's tactics finally paid off with a powerful strike down the centre of the goal, moving the score to 2-1. Seevic proceeded to push through WUC's defence, securing another two goals before half time.

The second half continued in the same fashion and Writtle conceded a further 5 goals, creating a final score of 9-1

Jennifer Stanhope, Writtle Univeristy College's Sports Development and Technician Officer, said: "The women continued to work hard, despite the goals made by Seevic throughout the game, and are hungry to make a comeback in their next game against Milton Keynes."
