Ladies 1 V Thirsk 2

Ladies 1 V Thirsk 2

Acomb ladies made the trip to Thirsk knowing that a win would seal their promotion and the championship.
It was a nervy start to the match from Acomb but they took the lead in the 5th minute through Georgie Wood after she intercepted the ball and made a clever one-two with Jenna Allinson then finished the ball from an acute angle. The lead was doubled in the 11th minute when the ever present Kerry Woods won a free hit and Allinson set up Hannah Yoward for a smart finish. 2 minutes later and it was 3-0 through Woods after she took on 4 Thirsk defenders before cutting back on herself to the edge of the D and smashing the ball past the Thirsk keeper. The score line should of settled the tangerines down but there was still a nervousness to their game and in the 26th minute the home side pulled one back from a short corner. Acomb were awarded a short corner of their own on the stroke of half time and with 2 Thirsk defenders being sent to the halfway line for running out early Woods slipped the ball to Wood for her 2nd goal of the match. At half time head coach Richard Crossland had the job of calming the nerves and it seemed to work a treat as they started the 2nd half superbly and quickly extended the lead after Klukowski dribbled expertly into the D and set up Woods for her 2nd and to make the score 5-1. Acomb then controlled the match from then on and super saves from the home keeper kept the score at 5-1 until the last 10 minutes when Georgie Wood completed her hat trick from a short corner with Sally Fairweather assisting. The last minute saw Acomb win another short corner and Fairweather this time assisting Klukowski to score Acomb's 7th. The full time whistle brought relief and joy to all in the team as they knew they had deservedly won the division 2 title.
