Slaz ladies 3s visited 3rd place Barnsley where they hoped to claim a much needed point to aid their endeavours to stay in div 5. The game was evenly matched with chances at both ends but it was Barnsley who found the net first from open play. Claire Dunstan got the well earned equaliser minutes into the second half with a strike that bounced off the diving keeper’s chest then slipped under her and over the line.
The second half saw the Slaz ladies work tirelessly from end to end with the forwards receiving some good balls in the D from well executed play but the barnsley defence broke down play to rob them of a shot on target. Slaz were awarded a couple of short corners but were unable to convert. Meanwhile Barnsley’s short corner tally was close to 20 with 8 consecutive penalties in a row. The slaz defence worked hard to scupper Barnsley’s efforts and player of the match Lizzie Tunstall made a plethora of great saves but eventually the visitors conceded.
Final score 2-1 Barnsley.
