Match report – Ladies’ 7ths – Saturday 3 December 2016

Ladies’ 7ths 5 Loddon 2nds 2

The Ladies’ 7ths went into this match in confident mood after last week’s win. This stood us in good stead with two cracking goals from Fi Brice in the first 6 minutes, one from a short corner. Loddon’s talented side came back quickly, but we replied before the final whistle with another goal from Mrs Brice. In the second half, a light touch in the D and a miscalculation from the keeper led to a goal for Evie Tibbenham, who shows more strength in every game, but again Loddon came back as we left our end pretty much undefended. However nothing could break our confident mood, with a final terrific short corner strike off Shirley McAllen by Fi Brice, taking the final result to 5 – 2 to the Ladies’ 7ths. We celebrated our last match of the year with a small sherry and After Eights. Lovely to see the team doing so well with a great mix of young and experienced players and some back-to-hockey mums!
