Magpies Ladies 6ths hockey report

Magpies Ladies 6th team versus Evergreens Ladies 2nd team.

We left home at the crack of sparrows to play Evergreens at Holt in an early morning match. It was pouring with rain which made us play hard to keep warm. The game began at a fast pace with the ball rocketing up and down the pitch at a rate of knots. Passing amongst Magpies was excellent as was blocking the Evergreen hit-outs. The first half, which seemed so short, ended with no score.

During the second half, Evergreens had a number of short corners but our brave defenders diverted the ball away. Marie Davy threw herself into every tackle whilst Molly Warne sprinted up the pitch with ease, moving around players without missing a beat. Georgie Cantrell smashed the ball home from the edge of the circle after a great pass from Millie Scarborough-Taylor. Despite further attempts at goal-scoring, from both teams, we won!

Score: 1- 0
