Slazengers ladies thirds bagged yet another win for the season against Halifax. Slazengers were worthy 3-0 winners.
Slazengers had so many chances on goal in the first ten minutes that they were beginning to wonder if this was going to be just one of those games. They need not have worried, up stepped player of the match Chelsea Armitage to break the dead lock to put away an unstoppable shot straight into the far left corner.
Slazengers were hopeful that this was just the start; Halifax had to defend in numbers which made the D very congested. Further attempts on goal from players Rebecca Jessop, Katie Browne, Gemma Whittam were all thwarted. The goal drought was soon ended by Julie Bacon who had been looking for the goal on numerous other attacks, not to be denied on this occasion a great strike and Slazengers goal tally increased to two.
Slazengers kept applying the pressure looking for that third, Sally Thornton put some great balls into the D which were unfortunately not converted, Elle Poskett worked tirelessly in her role & caused Halifax huge problems with her turn of speed.
With only minutes left to play a short was awarded to Slazengers, determined to claim a third goal , Slazengers pushed up the field, with so many players in the D it was difficult to see who actually had the final touch however the team decision was that captain Julie Finch could claim the goal.
A great 3-0 win for the mighty thirds.
