This top of the table clash started exciting with Boston Spa scoring from the off in 25 seconds, Slazengers hadn’t even woke up. This goal was trickled through the legs of keeper Eleanor.Slazengers counted this by putting great attacking pressure on with a great run by Claires Mills who slipped the ball to Katie Firth on the penalty spot and she made no doubt in putting it in the back of the net. The score was one all at half time.
In the Second Slazengers continued to dominate and this paid off half way through the second half with an equaliser from Mandy Sowerby. The goal was from the back line on a very tight angle and somehow squeezed into the goal.
Boston did equalise shortly after, but this was disallowed due to it hitting the attackers foot on the way in.
Slazengers sealed the game ten minutes later when Mandy got her second goal of the game with a well executed short corner. The mixture of power and precision made sure that the ball could not be stopped by Keeper or Defenders. Mandy was also awarded Man of the Match for her great skills and effort throughout the game.
Slazengers remain Top of the league after Sundays game with two games in hand on Boston Spa and one game in hand on Doncaster who are their nearest rivals.
