A very well organised Slazenger first string traveled to College Grove for this Premier League fixture.
Wakefield were immediately under pressure from the speed and intensity of the Slazengers attack, with Holly Tyres and Andrea Wallace coming through from midfield, it looked like Wakefield were in for a drubbing.
Wakefield steadied themselves and fought back, scoring first with a determined effort. From that point on it was end to end hockey.
Slazenger replied from a well worked penalty corner, but the home side regained the lead soon after.
Wakefield pressed the visitors, but at their attack broke down, Slazenger capitalised and caught Wakefield off guard to equalise again.
In the second half Slazengers came out with renewed vigor, putting the Wakefield defence under relentless pressure. Late in the half, the pressure told, with Slazenger converting a penalty corner to secure the three points.
