Vixens just keep on winning

Guiseley Vixens kept the pressure up on Hull City Ladies after beating Blackpool Wren Rovers 4-0 at Woodhouse Grove School after the venue was switched from Nethermoor.

Two goals just after the hour mark from Liv Thackray put the Vixens in a comfortable position before Sarah Danby added another.

Charlie Blythe put the game to bed just before the full-time whistle.

The Vixens started the game smartly, passing well in the middle of the park but they were unable to capitalise early on.

Lauren Griffiths had one of the clearer cut chances of the half with her long range effort which made goalkeeper Kathryn Heaton produce a great save to push it wide of the goal.

The last real action of the half saw Natalie Brace play a ball through to Danby, who dragged the shot narrowly past the post.

The second-half saw more opportunities for the Vixens and one finally produced a goal on the hour mark. Thackray nudged the ball past her marker before chipping the ‘keeper from inside the box.

She got her second in four minutes when another similar chance was put away, this time at more of an angle.

The Vixens kept battling and were rewarded when Brace slotted a ball through to Danby who put it home with ease, essentially killing the game.

Just before the full-time whistle, a fourth was added when two close efforts from Chantelle O’Hara were stopped by Heaton before the ball fell to Blythe who put it past the ‘keeper.
