Slazengers were up against Boston spa this week, always a close game between the two teams, but this week Boston got the win. They scored a goal early in the first half, but Slazengers came back strong, with some excellent cross pitch passing by Katie Firth, but Slazengers just couldn’t score despite some close chances from Sarah Cooper and Mandy Sowerby.
Boston scored a second goal before half time, but shortly into the second half Mandy Sowerby scored a screamer, the ball flew passed the keeper and into the back netting.
Slazengers then got a goal disallowed, Sarah Hobbs took on several players and put the ball in the back of the net, we are still unclear as to why the goal was disallowed. Shortly after, Boston finished the game off with a 3rd goal.
A disappointing results for Slazengers, especially when we had moments of excellent play. The Smeatons worked well together holding up the defence and creating chances for the inners, Claire Mills and Katie Firth. Sarah Cooper was really unlucky to put away her break away run, but the keeper for Boston had a good game and managed to keep us out.
