Slazengers Ladies 3rd’s made an early morning visit to a Rotherham side only one position above them in the league table. Slazengers made a positive start to the game dominating possession of the ball, which was rewarded midway through the half when Lily Miles smashed the ball into the D and Justine Birkett got a sly delection. Slazengers continued to work hard pressing forward from the midfield driven by Niomi Firth. Another goal was added to the tally a minute before half time when Hannah Chilton finished off some Slazengers quick passing,taking a 2 goal lead into the break.
Rotherham came back re-charged in the second half and gave themselves hope with an early goal. The 2nd half was more evenly balanced than the first, despite slazengers taking a 3-1 lead when player of the match Justine Birkett struck the ball against the backboard and gave the away team some breathing space. However Rotherham didn’t allow them to rest for long, pulling one back with a goal from free play and another from a short corner. Slazengers desperately tried to take all 3 points in the final seconds with 2 consecutive short corners after the final whistle blew. But it was not to be, leading to an unfortunate 3-3 draw for the Ladies team.
