The Ladies 2’s had a great game this week when they took on bottom of the table Clifton 3’s.
The first half started well with an early goal coming from a well struck short corner by Captain Cally Pollard. 5 minutes later attacker Emma Pullon collected the ball at the top of the circle and scored a magnificent goal to make it 2-0 within the first 15 minutes. Ten minutes later Clifton struck back making the score 2-1 at half time.
Lansdown started the second half as they did the first with a penalty corner which was converted by Susie Francis to make the score 3-1. Within the last 15 minutes of the game Sian Edwards took the ball round the Goal Keeper and looked certain score but for the last defender who was adjudged to have fouled her and Sian put the resulting Penalty Flick in the top corner making the score 4-1. Ten minutes before the end of the game Clifton began to tire and their last ditch defending resulted in one of their players being yellow carded and Lansdown being awarded another penalty flick which Sian Edwards again converted well the final score was 5-1 Lansdown.
Well done everyone a great result and a special congratulations to Sian Edwards who was our man of the match this week!
