The Ladies 1st Team bounced back from a hard fought loss to Hampstead and Westminster by thumping Northampton 5-0 on Sunday. An outstanding goal by Katie Wales set them on their way with two from captain Alex Robinson, one from Millie and one from Emma.
Here is a picture of the Ladies warm down routine after two matches in two days !!
The Ladies 2s also had a vital win holding on to beat Marlow 2-1 in a nail biting finish. Special mentions to Frankie Cox straight off a skiing holiday to score a vital goal and Lucy Thayer for the other. From bottom to 4th from bottom in two matches. Very encouraging.
Ladies 3s fought hard against top of the table (by miles) Hampstead and Westminster 3s. Southgate impressed with their passages of play, particularly on the break, but couldn’t manage to get the upper hand in the first half going 2-0 down. In the second a great pass from Caroline allowed the ball to reach Immy B who calmly smashed it past the keeper into the far corner. Unfortunately a high tomahawk from an ex bath uni ladies 1s player put the final score at 3-1 to the oppo. Despite this the ladies are more than happy with the hockey they showed today, and will bring that confidence forward. Man of the match votes were spread throughout, but Charlotte K clinched it with her great work playing out of position in defence. She was closely followed by goalie Izzy (great saves and organisation) and Chloe (fantastic running on and off the ball).”
4s lost narrowly at home to Eastcote 3s by a single goal to nil. There was some fine defending on display however, and Woman of the Week honours were shared by left back Jess Hayes and tireless midfielder Laura Dawson
