Report: 16-02-2013 – Ladies 3rd’s (1) v (2) Harrogate 5th’s

Slazengers 3rds battled hard and were unlucky to come away without any points.

Slazengers battled hard from the beginning and with some key players missing, people stepped into different roles with confidence.

Harrogate broke the defences early in the first half but slazengers didn’t let their heads go down and battled hard to nullify the goal. Justine Birkett was there on the right post to slot home the equaliser.

Throughout the second half, both defences stood strong despite the pressure. As the full time whistle blew, an unlucky foot in the D meant Harrogate were awarded a penalty corner. Slazengers worked hard to defend it but the ball smashed the backboard gutting all the slazengers players. Despite the 2-1 result, slazengers took positives out of the game and the all round performance was up to usual standard.
