Lansdown 4 v ISCA Dragons 4
From the whistle, ISCA surged forward to try and grab an early goal but Lansdown denied there efforts and played their own game. It was Lansdown who took the early lead with Nina Powell making a run down the right where she pulled the ball back for Ann Marie Randle to slip the ball left for Becky Mawby to score. Lansdown continued to play some good hockey, but gave away a couple of short corners and ISCA took advantage and equalised. The half finished 1 -1.
The second half continued as the first with some great hockey played by both teams. ISCA took the initiative and scored their second from another short corner, but Lansdown continued to battle in midfield and soon equalised when Alice Vigor managed to get a stick on the end of a cross and deflected the ball over the ISCA goalkeeper. The goals continued to flow with ISCA scoring their third from a break down the right, but Lansdown bounced back almost immediately with Vigor scoring her second. It was end to end play in the last 10 minutes with Lansdown receiving several short corners, but they were unable to convert any of them and then ISCA scored their fourth with two minutes to play. But that wasn’t Lansdown beaten, from the restart they surged forward and were rewarded with another short corner. A straight strike from Nina Powell saw the ball fly into the bottom right corner – a well deserved and well taken goal to make the final score four all.
