Slazengers ladies 3s continued with their strong start to the new year with a 1 – 0 home victory over Chapeltown 2s.

They scored the only goal of the game with a quick response after a Chapeltown attack down the middle of the pitch.

The resulting counter attack consisted of a succession of short passes leading to the ball being on the stick of Lilly Miles who dribbled round the Chapeltown defence only to be initially denied by the Chapeltown keeper, Miles however took advantage of the rebound with a clean strike to take a 1-0 scoreline into half time.

The second half continued in the same manner with the Slazengers mid field of Emily Entwisle, Linda Stacey and player of the match Miles working tirelessly however Slazengers could not find the finishing touch and the scoreline remained the same at the final whistle with the Horbury side deserving the full three points.
