Airbus Ladies opened their 2013-14 North Wales Women’s Football League with a 4-0 home defeat to Denbigh Town Ladies at the Airfield.

The final score-line was harsh on the Wingmakers but reflected that the away side took their chances. In the opening stages Airbus dominated and their best chance was a dipping effort from Dani Knox which just clipped the bar.

Not long before the break the visitors took the lead with a long-range wonder-strike, and shortly after the interval they doubled it with a shot curled into the far corner.

They were later awarded a penalty – initially saved by Airbus goalkeeper Sara Friend – but ordered to be re-taken, making it 3-0 with a low shot.

The Airbus ladies rallied with some good approach play.

With time running out, one break saw the Denbigh goalkeeper make a smart double save from Becky Lees and Laura Borley, but it was not to be the Wingmakers day, Denbigh scored a 4th goal late on with another low shot.

They will be hoping for a better result when they travel to Colwyn Bay next week.

The Airbus Ladies next home game is on 15th September 2013, 1:00PM at the Airfield against Prestatyn Ladies.
