Ladies 1’s 8 – Clifton2’s 2 Sunday, March 16, 2008Posted by becky in Cheltenham Hockey, Ladies 1st XI, Match Report.
The ladies 1st XI were back on song this week and racked up their 13th win of the season with an emphatic 8-2 goal fest against Clifton 2’s. Nina Emery opened the scoring after 4 minutes after some good play down the right by Hannah Lloyd and Becky Mawby. Clifton equalised 5 minutes later from open play but it was Lansdown who had the lead at half time with their second goal coming from Becky Mawby. The second half saw Clifton draw level soon after the break but the turning point for Lansdown came when keeper Kelz made an excellent save from a Clifton penalty corner and Julia Smith saving the rebound off the line. From then it was Lansdown’s game, the team stepped up the pace and were rewarded with six goals in the second half. Helen Wicks scored the 3rd, Becky scored her second to make it 4-2, Helen then scored her second to make it 5-2, Hannah Lloyd then made it 6-2 from a short corner, Gill Russ scored her first goal for the 1’s to make it 7-2 and finally Ann-Marie Randle completed the scoreline to make it 8-2. A fantastic team effort and a great way to bounce back from a disappointing result last week. Thank you to everyone who came to support us today, it is very much appreciated.
