Slazengers ladies 3’s made an impressive start to the season with their first game at home to a promising Sheffield Hallam side. Due to the summer reshuffle of the leagues, Slazengers were entertaining a side who finished last season 2 leagues above.
However they did not allow this to concern them, and they went 1-0 up midway through the first half as a result of quick passing which resulted in forward Karen Woodhead getting her 1st goal after her return from maternity.
Slazengers built the pressure and their lead was extended by Louise Beever when she swept the ball into the back of the goal.
The 2-0 lead was taken into half time and Slazengers began the 2nd half with the same dominance. A strong defence ensured that the visitors had no way through, but an unlucky deflection let Sheffield sneak a goal back. However this did not last long as Slazengers restored the goal difference when player of the match Karen Woodhead scored her second of the game to give Slazengers a much deserved 3-1 win and their first points on the board.
