Ladies 2nd Team v Bedford 2 (Home(L) W 6-2)
We welcomed Bedford Ladies 2’s to the nest and were anticipating a tough game against the team placed 3rd in the league.
We warmed up well and were straight out of the blocks with lots of attacking play coming down the right hand side from Shev Steggles & Plum Sweet. The Bedford defence succumbed to pressure and Laura scored the first goal from open play, after some silky skills from Angie. Laura soon after added her second from a well struck short corner.
Anouska banged in the 3rd after an initial air shot!
We went in confident and happy at half time with a 3-0 lead.
We maintained the pressure in the second half with lots of pressure from our forwards and lots of leg work from A. Woollatt & Eglington to keep the ball in our half. It was only a matter of time, and Angie classily scored the 4th goal.
We had plenty of short corners and Olivia Locke found herself in a great position at the post to score a deflection on her reverse.
Bedford scored 2 goals, both on the break. We were not finished yet though and after some great work from Fran Burrell at another corner, the legend Kath Johnson was there to see the ball over the line!
Some really slick Hockey, a great team effort, very happy 2’s with a 6-2 win.
