L4s basked in the sunshine, though not as the victors

26 March 2022, 10:00, Amersham and Chalfont HC

Ladies' 4s 0 - 2 Amersham & Chalfont Ladies 2s

Although we had previously beaten Amersham & Chalfont 1-0 at home in the first half of the season, a strong run of results had taken them to third in the table by Saturday morning. Knowing that the match was theirs to lose, we were all very motivated to make it as difficult as possible for them to achieve the key goal difference they needed for promotion.

At the beginning of the first half we found ourselves being pushed back, but some outstanding teamwork from our defence prevented any goals from being conceded. Despite all our efforts though, the deadlock was broken after a frustrating call by the umpire which led to the first goal being scored by A&C. However, this only drove us more, and towards the end of the first half we made some goal-deserving leads, challenging the opposing defence and putting them under pressure.

After a quality team talk at half-time, we came back onto the pitch motivated and prepared to score some goals to represent our efforts. Our wishes were not granted however, with the umpire sending players off left, right and centre, and calling what seemed to be hundreds of short corners. Once again our defence held out, holding off all short corner attempts from the attackers, and our forward lines continued to challenge the opposing defence. However, A&C scored another goal, despite the incredible teamwork that had been holding them off for so long.

The game ended 0-2, but I think most of us can agree that it was a very enjoyable game, with beautiful weather and a fair opposition - setting us up nicely for the last match of the season against Thame next weekend.
