Slazengers ladies 3s made the long journey to North Yorkshire to face a Pickering side in a rearranged Sunday fixture. Slazengers started the game the more positive of the two sides and their attacking start was rewarded with the first short corner of the game. In a well executed move the ball was pushed out and stick stopped at the top of the penalty area, with a little nudge it was placed into the path of the falling stick of defender Sarah Ritchey who, with a clean strike, scored her first goal for the club and put slazengers 1-0 up.
Slazengers followed it up with another well worked goal in free play 10 mimutes later, with a move that was finished off neatly by Karen Woodhead to put Slazengers 2 up.
The comfortable lead was short lived however, as Pickering upped their game to bring the score back level and take the 2-2 scoreline into the half time break.
Both teams started the second half with further end to end attacks which resulted in a further 5 goals being scored between the two teams.
The further goals for Slazengers came from Ellie Page, Louise Beever, and with centre forward Karen Woodhead scoring her second of the game. Despite Pickering pulling one back everytime Slazengers pulled ahead, time ran out for them when the final whistle blew and Slazengers took all 3 points with a well earned 5-4 victory.
