Olton 3s Vs Leamington 2s

2s enjoy hard-fought away win

With a run of frozen off games Leamington 2nd XI found themselves with a much longer Christmas break than expected. With this in mind they knew they would have to blow the winter cobwebs away and come out of the blocks ready and raring to go.
The Leamington side did this fantastically with a great team spirit and some superb play from Suzie Chamberlain, Lucy Wakefield, Charlie Mayne and captain Laura Drury. With pressure building it wasn’t long before the away team went 1-0 up with a determined effort from Jeanette Lloyd. Not long enough however before Olton stepped up a gear and went 1-1. Leamington didn’t lose heart and dug deep to see Sarah Gambling convert a well-drilled penalty corner routine. Leamington felt the game was theirs and continued to press with some killer balls from Caroline Allison out to Sian Miller to attack the Olton D, but an uncharacteristic defensive mishap meant Olton were able to sneak another equaliser.
Not to be done out of a full compliment of 3 points Leamington rallied again and strung together some fantastic play from Hannah Collins, Charlie Quayle and Sarah Gambling on the left. It was up to Jess Coleshill to neatly tuck the winning goal away.
Not pretty at times but a great display of resilience and team play. Player of the match reflected this as it was shared between Lucy Gribben for her confident attacking play, Suzie Chamberlain for her quick turn-over of the ball and Laura McNeil (Goalie McGoalface) for her outstanding array of saves.
The win keeps the Leamington side still in touch with the closely contested top of the Division 1 table, hosting Hampton at home next week.
