Division 1: Gravesend Ladies 1’s vs. Blackheath and Elthamians Ladies Second Team (3-1)
Saturday 10th February. Push back 13.15
Gravesend met top-of-the-table Blackheath and Elthamians at home this week. After four consecutive wins, Gravesend were up for the challenge and stole the ball from their push back. After putting pressure on their defence, the first goal came from a short corner from Hannah Campbell. Against the run of play Blackheath were awarded a short corner and converted it to make it 1-1.
In the second half, Gravesend again piled the pressure on and a cracking pass from Karen Howell was converted by Hannah Campbell for her second goal. The third and final goal to seal the victorious win came from a driving run from Player of Match, Odette ‘Billy Whizz’ Kelham, who stole the ball and found Kerry Jewiss just outside the 25 metre line whose one-touch pass, straight into the D, found Karen ‘Jonesy’ Howell. A sweeping strike secured another blinding win and three points for Gravesend. Great team spirit and determination by all.
Next Game: Saturday 17th February. Home against Herne Bay Ladies 1’s. Push back 13.15
