Having been bottom of the table six weeks ago a fantastic unbeaten run has take the Ladies up to 8th in Division 1 of the Middx League. Ladies 4s recorded their biggest win of the season beating Eastcote 4s away by 9 goals to nil. There was a hat trick for Hannah, a goal apiece for Megan and Julie, 2 for Danielle and 2 for Magda, who shared the accolade of Woman of the Week with Ella Sherring
Despite being the stronger team with the majority of possession, the ladies threes lost 2-1 away at Teddington. The result simply came down to outcomes in the D. Teddington converted two from three good chances on goal. Yet Southgate only converted one despite entering the D on numerous occasions. Disappointing score, but the team will come back next week with fire and a goal hungry attitude. Goal scorer was Gaby G who managed to pop in past the keeper during a scrap on the line, and MoM was Jess who put in 120 per cent effort on and off the ball.
The 5s very quickly found themselves down to 12 players when Lynn broke her arm 30 seconds in to a tense and scrappy match. We played some great hockey bolstered by a strong midfield of Annette, Helena and Megan. This freed up the forwards to get high and exert sustained pressure on Old Uxonians able defence. Charlotte was MOM for saving two P flicks. Julie was joint second for two reverse stick goals on pen corner rebounds. Helena shared second place for working like a Trojan throughout and totally skilling the oppo up the left. Fives move up to 5th in the league, just behind W Hampstead on goal difference.
