Ladies 1 v Halifax 2

Ladies 1 v Halifax 2

Acomb ladies played hosts for the first time this season and
welcomed Halifax 2s in Yorkshire division1 looking to continue their unbeaten run. They game started with strong pressure on the home side defence which saw Wendy Watson, Jane Elsworth and Rachel Roberton having to work hard. The tangerines soon settled and found themselves putting the pressure the other way, strong runs down the right side from Vicky Wrigley linking nicely with Hannah Yoward. Hard work both sides was to no avail in a goalless first half. The second half saw much of the same, Halifax's heavy handed game play made it difficult for the tangerines but some tight marking by Emily Watson and solid clearances from keeper Sam Storr kept the visitors at bay. The best chance of the game came by the tangerines skipper Kerry Woods whose skill in the D saw a strike on goal which rebound off the far post. Both sides had numerous penalty corners throughout the game but at the final whistle ina goal less game were only able to walk away with one point each leaving the tangerines to look forward to continuing their form against league leaders Northallerton
