Slazengers ladies 3’s travelled to York for their match against a university side positioned third in the league. The first half saw a competitive game with both teams evenly matched and hard work in midfield and defence ensured that the young university team did not put themselves on the scoreboard.
A 0-0 scoreline was taken into the second half where both teams continued to battle, despite the fast pace beginning to take its toll.
Unfortunately, Slazengers could not keep York university at bay any longer, with York scoring 2 goals from quick play. Slazengers kept their focus though and did not allow York to capitalise further. Goal keeper Dana Clarke made a number of good saves helping to frustrate the York attack.
Despite being 2 goals down, Slazengers kept the York defence on their toes, creating many an opprtunity to try and pull the game back. Working non stop in midfield, the ball often found it’s way towards the York goal for the Slazengers attack to pounce, however it was not to be Slazenger’s’ day and they were unable to find the finishing touch, with the scoreline finishing 2-0.
Player of the match went to Emily Chason who stood strong in midfield.
