Slaz kept the heads up and after many attempts on goal, slaz won a PC. The ball was expertly switched right to Alex Stead who smashed the back board with an awesome strike. The exciting hockey continued with Chloe bates (gk) making some awesome saves. Unfortunately the pressure was too great and Brigg converted another 2-1.
Half time and slaz regrouped. After half time, slaz obtained another penalty corner and second receiver Linda Stacey smashed the ball to bring the scores level. Slaz kept the pressure on but couldn’t convert their many chances.
Two minuets from the end, Brigg were awarded a series of penalty corners for Brigg who scored from in open play in the last minuet. Final score 3-2 to Brigg but many positives to be taken out of the game! Player of the game Linda Stacey said in her post match interview ‘we were excellent and things are coming together now.
