Slazengers ladies 3’s travelled to Brigg for their Saturday afternoon fixture keen to build on their win from last week. They showed their intent early and looked confident in their passing and movement. Attacking chances were created from the off with player of the match Naomi Frith dictating play from the middle. Slazengers were rewarded when some very quick movement from Carol Schofield saw the visitors go 1 up when she struck the back board mid way through the first half.
There was very little work for the Slazengers defence to do. This saw a change to Slazengers formation in the second half as they gave themselves the luxury of pushing another player into attack. The second half however was a more even affair and the Brigg attack caught the Slazengers defence momentarily off guard and evened out the score.
Slazenger’s fought back with intensity and the lead was restored one minute before the final whistle when the Slazengers were awarded a short corner which was injected with precision by Emily Chason and neatly finished off by Naomi Frith.
