Slazengers Ladies 1’s started well from the first whistle this week. Despite playing the strong Boston Spa side, the Horbury team were undeterred. Within the first 5 minutes Slazengers were forcing the errors and for the majority of the first half, all the action was in the home sides attacking circle. Andrea Wallace, Frankie Tyrell and debut player Emily Chason linked up well throughout the game, creating many breaks for the team. In the first 35 minutes we were very unlucky to score, with Jessica Rudge and Ellie Page getting countless shots off, and Ailish Hendry and Tyrell both hitting the same post at a short corner. Half time started at 2-0 to Boston spa.
Slazengers lack of goals ended in the second half when an injection into the circle from Hendry was deflected by a diving Rudge. It was too late for the ladies 1’s though and the final score was 4-1. Boston Spa were a strong side but the ever improving Slaz team played a much better game against them than previously in the season. Man of the match went to Tyrell, and new to the team Chason had a storming match also. Minchella was strong as always at the back.
The team have improved no end from last season but there is still a long way to go!
