The message from our captain this weekend was WIN WIN WIN and that is what the Slazenger’s ladies 2nd team set out to do from the off.
The Slazenger’s ladies pressed hard from the off, keeping possession in the attacking ‘D’. Wakefield gained a lucky break and scored with a lifted shot into the top left corner. Slazenger’s did not let their heads drop and retaliated with a great goal from Claire Dunstan. This saw the half time score 1-1.
The Slazenger’s ladies continued to keep possession in the attacking ‘D’ from the start of the second half and this was rewarded with a goal come from Naomi Frith. Slazenger’s where awarded a short corner from open play, this was saved by the Wakefield keeper, however Claire Mills received the ball and put it in the back of the net. Ellie Page scored the next goal from open play. Claire Dunstan was quick off the mark for the final goal, taking it from Wakefield just after the restart from half way and scoring just before the final whistle.
Final score Slazenger’s 5 – 1 Wakefield.
Player went to Sarah Ritchey.
