Ladies 3s give table toppers a real run for their money
Ladies Seven 3s welcomed table toppers Harwich for their final game of the season on Saturday. A feisty team talk from Skipper Stens and Coach Langers had the girls pepped up to show Harwich what they were made of. The first half saw IPSWICH frustrate the league leaders and completely outclass them on every inch of the field. An unbreakable wall of defence, perfect passing in midfield and drives into the D saw IPSWICH have a barrage of short corners. Harwich GK playing exceptionally well blocked many a shot but was not able to keep out the banger of a goal from Skip Stens as she bagged her first goal of the season. IPSWICH went into half time excited that they could be the team to put a blemish in Harwich’s unbeaten record but it was not to be. Tirelessly battling and never stopping to give 100% meant that it was only in the last 15 mins of the game that Harwich finally broke through to equalise and break a few IPSWICH hearts! They then reverted to playing some good old school hockey and a few smacks up the pitch to their high hanging forward saw 3 more goals go in to give them a convincing win of 4-1. If there ever was a game where the result did not reflect the play then this was it. IPSWICH 3s finished 4th in the table.
