Ladies 4’s v Wotton under Edge (Sat 2nd Dec) Wednesday, December 6, 2006Posted by Admin in Cheltenham Hockey, Field Hockey, Ladies 4th XI, Match Report.
Wotton under Edge began the game strongly putting pressure on the Lansdown defence from the start. Lansdown defended well in the first half and were unlucky to concede the first goal. At 1-0 down Lansdown fought back well looking for the equaliser. After some excellent play by the Lansdown midfielders and forwards Wotton conceded a short corner which was sweetly struck by Emma Crick into the back of the goal to see the scores level at half time.
Wotton continued to pile the pressure on the Lansdown defence in the second half and scored from a short corner to see them go 2-1 up. Lansdown tried hard to fight back, but after Wotton got their third goal they seemed to grow in confidence and there was nothing Lansdown could do to stop them. Wotton’s fifth goal was a great strike into the top corner which the keeper could do nothing about. After this Wotton turned on the style and made it 6-1. Lansdown continued to fight until the final whistle, but unfortunately were not able to narrow the 5-goal deficit. Final score Ladies 4s 1 Wotton 6.
