Going into this match the Ladies 4s knew that it was going to be a tough, physical match but as always we were all up for the fight! We had a tough first 7 minutes with Marlow managing to score 2 goals. Despite this, the L4s kept their heads up with some great defensive work from the half and full backs and some great saves from Tehya. Caz kept her cool in the middle, holding the ball very nicely. Unfortunately the first half ended 6-0 to Marlow.

At half time, we regrouped and had a great team chat, forgot about the score and went into the second half 0-0. Everyone clearly listened as within 2 minutes we managed to win our first short corner of the match! In her own words, Rebecca blistered the ball towards the goal, the goalie saved it but Katie was there to slot the rebound home into the back of the net! After another excellent 5 minutes of us dominating the D we managed to win another short corner. This time we put all of Wednesdays short corner practise into use, swiftly executing the ping pong routine. Again it was saved, but Katie was in the right place at the right time yet again and slotted the ball home. We continued to play some excellent hockey with a few unfortunate break throughs from Marlow resulting in a few more goals for them. This did not stop us as an interception from Molly, quick ball to Kim, and a dodgy piece of play from Marlow resulted in a penalty flick for us. Kim stepped up and beautifully put the ball into the back of the net. Marlow managed to sneak one more past us before the full time whistle was blown.

Despite the score line, we all played some excellent hockey and look forward to bringing this to our match next week. Katie was voted POM for her excellent work and 2 wonderful goals.
