Slazengers ladies first team got off to a great start this Saturday, with an early goal in the first 4 minutes. A visionary pass into the circle from Andrea Wallace to the far post was secured nicely into the back of the net by Helen Hough. Despite a large amount of support from the Slaz sideline, the lead was short lived. Halifax retaliated with a goal in the next two minutes and another goal at 8 minutes.
Some strong play from both teams gave a few chances for goals at either end of the pitch, but Slazengers were next to score. 5 minutes before half time, Helen Hough slipped an underarm pass to Jessica Rudge who finalised the goal, to finish the first half at 2-2.
Halifax came back strongly at half time, scoring quickly after the restart at 37 minutes and followed with 2 more goals. Slaz replied at 66 minutes with top goal scorer Jessica Rudge scoring again, but it was too late for Slaz who suffered a 5-3 loss. Commendable performances went to Lisa Minchella and debut star Alice Gascoigne.
