The Owls travelled the short distance to face East Midlands Premier league Oughtibridge ladies in the preliminary round of the FA cup.

It was a game of two halves with the Owls having the better of the first half with Channy Rymer making it 1-0 on 5 minutes with a great free kick which curled into the top corner of the Oughtibridge goal. The wind was behind the Owls and almost helped put our lot 2-1 up when a Channy corner was cleared off the line on 20 minutes. The Owls had certainly had the better chances without making them count, the opposition had only managed an early chance that went wide of the post and a speculative free kick that was well over the bar.

Half time: Oughtibridge 0 : 1 SWLFC

Oughtibridge had the wind behind them after the break and came out as expected on the front foot. They hit the post after 5 minutes and used the wind to their advantage to bring the game back to 1-1 after a corner was swung in with it going straight in off the back post. There wasn't many clear chances from either team in a well fought contest but Oughtibridge took the lead with a well worked goal which led to the ball being crossed from the left and tapped in from 6 yards for 2-1.

Both teams huffed and puffed with the Owls pushing for an equaliser towards the end of the game but the opposition saw the game out and it is them that progress to the next round.

Managers comment: 
A good game in tricky conditions, two evenly matched teams with a well worked goal the difference. No complaints over the outcome and happy with our lot. Oughtibridge have finished in the top two/three for the past few seasons in the Division above ourselves but today the team acquitted themselves well with it difficult to pick out who were the higher ranked team.
