Slazengers ladies 1’s travelled to a very cold Driffield this weekend. However team spirits were high after a good team performance the previous week.
Driffield made the better start and very quickly sneaked in two goals past the Slazengers keeper. In classic Slazengers style, it took the first ten minutes or so to warm up to match pace. Once the team had, we began to make it extremely difficult for the strong Driffield side. The forwards Helen Hough, Ellie Page and Jessica Rudge did a fantastic job of pressing their defence and forcing errors from the opposition. The second part of the first half solely consisted of Slazengers attacking in the Driffield half. Despite many shots from the forwards and even some attempts from Ailish Hendry, the ball did not want to go in the goal.
In the second half Slazengers did not give up, and the final 5-0 score line did not reflect the ladies performance. Driffield were a strong side but Slazengers more than held their own. Lily Miles had a good debut performance but man of the match went to Sue Hope who had a great game controlling the centre of the pitch.
