AC Milan Women faced Pink Bari yesterday afternoon and came away with a huge victory to extend their winning streak to three games this season. Milan Women won the game 3-1 taking all three points but they conceded their first goal of the season from a cheap free kick where they got caught out by a simple header at the back post.
Valentina Giacinti found some vindication and looked a more calm figure as she registered her first goal of the season with a cheeky header at the back post within the first five minutes of the game. Around the 25th minute, new signing Christy Grimshaw played a through ball to another new signing in Natasha Dowie who managed to slot past the keeper despite having two defenders on her back. Finally, Giacinti scored a second goal in the second half after just pipping the offside trap and finding Dowie’s pass to set up an one-on-one where she blasted home the third goal for the Rossonere.
