Ladies 6ths Match Report
A hard fought game for the 6s ended with a well deserved win and a less-well deserved broken thumb for captain Jodie Guest! A fairly even first half on a very muddy pitch ended 0-0 so magpies were very glad to see reinforcements in the shape of Grace and Hannah arriving just as the whistle went to start the second half. Magpies then piled on the pressure with some excellent midfield work by Jodie, Tina Neill and Harriet Aitchison, (Harriet escaping her usual confines of the goalie kit to do some running around!) before a strong strike from Laura gave Magpies the lead. A second from Clemmy Ardly-Forder soon followed before Herlings pulled one back to make it 2-1. Magpies came back strongly with a very impressive reverse stick shot from Clemmy to make it 3. Herlings grabbed their second towards the end of the game and with Jodie’s injury made for a tense final few minutes but Magpies held on for the win. A great team performance and some brilliant individual work too. A very strong game for both Alysha and Karen and it was great to see Evie back from injury. We will miss Jodie now for 6 weeks recovery for her thumb but she will still be along supporting the team, (And hopefully bringing the jelly-babies!). Final score 3-2 to Magpies.
MOM: Clemmy, Laura and Jodie
