Tenacity Ensures GLHC Takes The Points
Division 4: Gravesend Ladies 2’s v Holcombe Ladies 4’s (2-1)
Saturday 3rd February. Home. Push back 13.15
GLHC started strong with a first half goal courtesy of a cleverly worked 4-pass short corner from Gail Petherick to Charlie Avery to Debbie Hamer back to Petherick for her to sneak it into the goal; which left the opposition standing still.
In the second half, Holcs stepped up their game putting pressure onto GLHC. Gravesend responded with passion and a united team spirit and a second goal soon came from a great pass from Claire Stevens to set up Charlie Avery, who took on the defence and keeper to score a superb goal.
The GLHC defence stayed tight throughout with great resilience from Sharon Griffin, Vicky Kalaka, Isabel Williams and Debs Watson. Goal keeper, Sue Jones was tested throughout however she kept the score for as long as possible at 2-0. However, Holcs managed to break which resulted in a goal. Gravesend held tight for the last few minutes for a well-earned win in a closely fought game.
Player of the Match: Isabel Williams (for the third week running!)
