Slazenger’s ladies 3rds took on Harrogate at slazenger’s. With both teams equal on points, the prospect of the game was mouthwatering, and it didn’t disappoint.
The game was end to end with Slazenger’s putting the ball into the D but failing to convert. Slazenger’s maintained the pressure but were caught on the break early in the first half and Harrogate scored.
Some half time words from inspirational new coach Hayley Wood were effective and slazenger’s 3rds continues to defend well in the second half. The ball was then thrust into the Slazenger’s attacking D, where Becky Gummerson was waiting to battle hard with the keeper and boom went the back board! The celebration was a sight to behold with Becky ecstatic at her first goal of the season!
Final score was 1-1 which was a fair result after 70 minuets! Well played to everyone.
It was hard to pick a man of the match as everyone played so well however Donna Wood just pipped it for excellent defensive work!
