A Sunday fixture for Slazengers ladies 3s meant a home tie against Lincolnshire side Louth in the 1st round of the Yvonne Horner knockout cup. The first half saw both teams applying pressure in the opposition’s half, but the Slazengers defence were impressive and stood firm. Goalkeeper Gemma Wilson made impressive saves, keeping Slazengers in the game time and time again and resulting in her earning the player of the match accolade.
The 2nd half continued to be goaless until mid way through when Louth finally broke the deadlock. Slazengers continued to battle hard and push forward with Caro Schofield looking dangerous, but the final whistle thwarted their efforts and the score finished 0-1, ending Slazengers cup hopes.
The sides meet again in two weeks time in a league fixture.
