Ladies’ 8s went to play Wychwood at Cokethorpe on a bright frosty morning. We started well with a goal in the first ten minutes beautifully finished by Libby. Liv got us another one immediately after half time. However, Wychwood came back very aggressively and got two from well-worked short corners to equalise. They had a further goal batted in by their centre forward when it was over her head. This was, quite rightly, disallowed by the umpire as it was too dangerous. They then went on to get another with a good shot into the right corner of the goal. This put them into the lead. So, the final score was 3 – 2 to Wychwood.
It was a great team effort, we just couldn’t get it in the back of the net often enough. This was reflected in the nominations for player of the match for Hsu, Niv, Gill, Maddi and Hannah. However, the winner was Cat who had an outstanding game.
Many thanks indeed to Sophie Lawman for managing the team, and to the two excellent umpires.
