|Result||W 5 - 2|
|Time played||Normal time|
Despite the weather, this was an enjoyable game with super hockey played, especially in the first half!
We scored within the first 10 minutes – a team effort with several good passes into the D for Evie to slot in. Unfortunately, we didn’t remain disciplined enough and conceded 5minutes later following a series of attempted clearances from defence and missed tackles! Generally, we had most of the play in this half but they were very quick to break which caught us out several times. The ball fell to Jas just outside their 22m - she evaded all their tackles, took it into the D and placed it past the GK. This time we were more disciplined and managed their attacks, creating another goal a few minutes from half-time, scored by Tracey Rowley.
The second half started well with another goal from Tracey but we allowed Tamworth to score again as we were unable to clear our lines well! Whilst we tired in the second half and lost shape, we worked hard to hold Tamworth to a few attacks only which we dealt with, scoring again in the last 10 minutes – Tracey’s 3rd goal!
A good win with lots of good passing hockey and super team performance!
