Vixens resume normal service

Guiseley Vixens are back to winning ways after a comfortable 2-0 away win at Mossley Hill Ladies. 

Two first-half goals and a penalty save from goalkeeper Beth Seasman were enough to secure the three points which puts them clear at the top. 

The Vixens started the game well and scored their first goal just four minutes in.  

Danica Roberts threaded a ball through to Liv Thackray who controlled it before dancing around a defender and slotting it past the ‘keeper. 

Mossley had their only real chance of the half when they made Seasman produce a good save from a free-kick taken from the edge of the box four minutes later.

A good link up between Roberts and Thackray saw Roberts hit a sweet volley but it was put out for a corner. 

The resulting corner was delivered into the box by Chantelle O’Hara and Liv DaCosta met it with her head, directing it over the ‘keeper to make it 2-0.

The rest of the game was plain sailing for the Vixens aside from a penalty, when a Mossley attacker was brought down in the box by Josie Hewson. 

Mossley’s substitute ‘keeper stepped up but Seasman dived correctly to her right to maintain her clean sheet. 

“You always hate penalties as a ‘keeper but you have to guess the right way and this time I did. It was good to get up and stop the rebound so I’m happy,” said Seasman.

The Vixens are now three points clear at the top of the FAWPL Northern Division One with three games in hand and play Chester le Street at Nethermoor Park next Sunday.
