From the off, the horbury side knew this weeks match was going to be a tough one. Slazengers Ladies 1’s, had a difficult game against undefeated, top of the league team, Adel.
The team started off, undeterred, and raring for the match ahead. Slazengers dampened Adel’s shine, making the usually dominant team look rather average. Unfortunately Adel managed to sneak 3 goals past the strong defence, 2 of which the umpire admitted perhaps shouldn’t have been goals. The Slaz side were playing well as a team, some of the best hockey they have played all season.
Entering the second half Slaz were 3-0 down, but upped their game in the second half to only finish 4-0. A fantastic result against the strong Adel team who have been beating most opposition with 8 or 9 goals.
Tracy Lorriman had a great stint in goal, despite the result, and is improving with every match. Yet again some strong defending from Minchella and Wallace duo. The midfield miracles Tyrrell and Gunn, ran their socks off covering box to box during the challenging match. This weeks match has prepared us well for local derby game next week against Huddersfield Dragons.
