IMHA World Cup Report- Barcelona 035 Women continue their winning ways.

England Women’s o35 continued their unbeaten run and went top of the table with a 3.0 win against the host nation Spain.

The game was hotly contested in the first half with strong defending from both teams to leave the game scoreless at half time.

England broke the deadlock in the third quarter through Rebecca Ross. Spain pressurised the England defence for the remainder of the third quarter in search of an equaliser but were denied by the saves of Sarah Ellis.

In the fourth quarter England added a further ‘wonder goal’ from Jo Ellis who took the ball from the halfway line and fired it into the net.

The final goal was added by Laura Collins who swept in a decisive cross from Sarah Daley.

England now have two rest days before facing Australia on Friday.
