Leamington 2s V Old Sils 1
Leam 2s score 5 to complete pre-season warm up trio.
With a new formation starting to come together, but lacking availability Leamington 2s knew they would have to work hard against a team with lots of youthful players. Thankfully experience and team play helped Leamington see 2 goals put past the opposition goalie by midfielder Claire Pomfret
. With Jeanette Lloyd
providing the up front drive and assists, it was turning out to be a domination by Leamington in the first quarter.
Sils fought back hard and, with some good play down the wings, drove deep into the Leamington D, securing a short corner and converting at the near post. Quick play from Caroline Allison
, erica smith
and Key Henderson in the centre of the pitch, to find Lloyd, saw Leamington secure their own short corner which Claire Pomfret
converted after an excellent stick stop from Nic Williams
A further goal from Jess Coleshill
saw Leamington go 4-2 up, but the goals hadn't stopped coming yet. With Sophie Lily taking a ball to the head and on-hand GP attending Leamington found themselves down to 10 players. Digging deep Laura Drury
controlled the defensive play to weather the attack. At 4-3 Leamington were back to a full compliment of 11 on pitch and a swift 16 from Drury up to the half way line to find Pomfret, who fed Lloyd in the centre of the opposition D to finish the game 5-3 to Leamington.
Player of the match was awarded to Laura Drury
for solid defence and distribution.
