Walton followed up last week’s win with a great display against Teddington. In a mixture of rain and shine, they took control with an early goal from Amelie, who slotted in from a tight angle between keeper and post. Next came a fine solo goal from Clodagh. She picked up the ball in the Casuals half, sprinted down the right, cutting through players into the box, scoring with a powerful shot into the bottom corner. After half time, Walton maintained their dominance. Amelie was fouled and Lilia thumped the resulting free kick past the wall into the top left of the net. Teddington had very little chances but did manage to score following a breakaway run by their striker. She was 1-on-1 with Sophia, who came out fast, but couldn’t stop the shot into the bottom left of the goal. However, there was to be no comeback, and the Casuals wrapped up the points with a fourth goal by Holly. A huge chip into the box by Lilia caught the goalie unaware and the bounce favoured Holly, who shot first time into the bottom left. It wrapped a fine team performance from the Diamonds.
