LILY BECKETT was named the Crawley Wasps U15s’ player of the match as they beat Cuckfield Cosmos 4-3 on Sunday.Despite a good start by the Wasps, it was Cuckfield Cosmos who took the lead. However, a great ball from Beckett found Chloe Coaker, who went one-on-one with the keeper to get the equalising goal. Straight from kick-off, Caitlin Baigent crossed to Coaker, who beat the keeper to give the Wasps a 2-1 lead. However, just before half-time, Cuckfield Cosmos equalised.
In the second half, a great ball from Beth Clawson found Jodie Barker, who hit the ball into the top corner for 3-2. There was some good link-up play from Beckett and the returning Topaz Luxford but they couldn’t find the back of the net and Cuckfield Cosmos equalised from a set-piece soon after. With ten minutes to go, Wasps were trying everything they could to find the win. Barker laid off to Luxford, who fired home the ball to give Wasps a 4-3 lead.
