A game of “21”
It is days like today where it really hits home that hockey is a winter sport! Cold, wet and soggy saw pushback.
Both sides worked hard, with impressive play observed for both sides. Railway applied the early pressure to Loddon’s defence, seeing near misses. Loddon began to fight back applying pressure to Zoe Webster, Lily Collins
, Kelly Martin
, Charlotte Soanes
, Jan Tizzard and Kerry Burwood
strong defence. This soon resulted in a goal for Loddon.
worked tirelessly to successfully make her way to the side of D, hitting a paced and accurate ball to Kiri Phoenix
, who was able to craftily apply the touch that sent the ball to the back of net.
Both sides could almost taste the victory, which upped the ante, leading to poor tackles and bookings for both sides. A skilful pass from Laura Gell
saw a solid hit from Becky Howes
into the D with a deflection from a Loddon player landing into goal, unfortunately being disallowed.
Later saw a substantial sweep from Claire Ward
resulting in a brawl in front of the goal; Scrivener, Gell, Howes all attempting to slot this home. Phoenix hoping to complete the successful push was sadly greeted by a Loddon’s players feet, leading to a short which was unfortunately defended away.
After the likes of Collins, Tizzard, Soanes, Burwood, Martins and Webster working frantically to maintain the score line, Loddon were able to take the final goal.
The final score resulting in a 2-1 victory to Loddon.
