AMMIES' girls under-15s returned to competitive action this week after a ten week lay-off with a cup semi-final against Colyton.
Ammies controlled the game from the opening whistle but struggled to find a way past a well organised Colyton defence. Rawlings finally got the breakthrough after twenty minutes, taking a square ball from Allen beating a couple of defenders before slotting home. Ammies increased this lead after forcing a series of corners and Steer reacted quickest to stab home after a goalmouth scramble.
In the second half the pattern remained the same, Ammies dominating possession and territory but finding it difficult to create many openings. Dunn finally added Ammies 'third with a strike from the edge of the box.
This goal gave Ammies the cushion they needed and they began to relax and play the football they are renowned for.
Further chances fell to Worsley, Steer and Cooper but they couldn't beat the keeper. Rawlings added her second as she received the ball from Hillman by the corner flag, and dribbled into the box before firing home.
Ammies' final goal of the game came from Dunn, who picked the ball up thirty yards from goal before playing a one two with Cooper and unleashing a shot from the edge of the box to complete Ammies' victory.
