It was an extraordinary end to this Sundays women’s football games with both Penrith AFC Ladies and Penrith Development team games being abandoned.
Penrith AFC Ladies 2 – 1 Accrington Ladies (Game Abandoned after 57 minutes)
After a very competitive first half it was Penrith who found themselves 2-1 ahead at the break with a superbly taken brace of goals from striker Lily Gaulton.
Into the second half Penrith appeared to have taken the initiative as they pressed for a 3rd goal.
However the game was brought to a premature end when, in the 57th min, an Accrington player collapsed on the pitch requiring medical attention and an ambulance was called.
Best wishes go to the player as she recovers in hospital.
It is likely that the game will need to be replayed later in the season.
Penrith: Jones, Jonhston, Han Fawkes, C. Smith, McCormick, Hea Fawkes, Nutter, Ullyart, Gaulton, Hopton, Campbell
Penrith AFC Development 2-2 Penwortham Reserves (Game Abandoned after 80 mins)
Penrith took the lead midway through the first half through Jazz Campbell-Flynn.
Penwortham replied with goals each side of the break to lead 1 – 2.
Jodie English equalised for Penrith midway through the second half to set up a grandstand finish. Both teams were pushing for the winner when an unfortunate injury to a Penrith player resulted in an ambulance being called and the game was abandoned in the 80th minute.
The injured player has since been released from hospital and is making a steady recovery.
It has today been confirmed that the 2-2 result will stand in this game.
