Liverpool score five past Coventry United at Prenton Park with a dominant home display
A great result and a superb performance from Liverpool Women today against Coventry United Ladies. A very deserving win for Liverpool with goals from Niamh Fahey, Becky Jane, and Ceri Holland.
The Reds started very well with Missy Bo Kearns having an opportunity on the 8th minute with her near post effort going wide of the goal. Liverpool enjoyed plenty of possession in the first half and managed to get in behind Coventry and that showed in the number of times the players found themselves with loads of space on the wings and an opportunity to cross into the box.
Liverpool broke the deadlock on the 22nd minute with skipper Niamh Fahey scoring her second goal of the season after a Bo Kearns corner creates chaos in the box and Fahey smashed the ball into the roof of the net. Liverpool immediately makes it two-nil with Becky Jane getting on the end of a Ceri Holland cross after a great bit of play down the left-hand side.
Coventry had their first chance of the game on the 38th minute after a poor back pass is latched on to by Destiney Touissant who looks certain to score but Rachel Laws was quick off her line to smother the ball and deny the goal.

The second half started similar to the first with Liverpool enjoying possession of the ball and making it three nil on the 52nd minute with Ceri Holland getting on the scoresheet after a superb ball from Jane. Liverpool looked to be enjoying themselves massively from that point onwards with Rhiannon Roberts, Kirsty Linnett, and Ceri Holland all having opportunities to add to their lead.
However, it was Fahey who scored the next goal and her second of the game with another great link-up with Bo Kearns and a sublime right-footed finish into the bottom corner that left the keeper with no chance. More opportunities followed for Liverpool with Linnett being denied by Coventry Keeper Sue Wood who despite the scoreline had a very good game.
Melissa Lawley enters the field and makes an immediate impact scoring the fifth goal of the game after a great team worked goal with Rachel Furness, Holland, and Lalwey all linking up.
Coventry were very much dominated in this game with Liverpool giving them no chance to create any opportunities for themselves. The Reds clearly did their homework and it paid off massively.
