Woking L1s vs Chiswick L1s - 2-3

Woking Hockey Club, Wishbone Way, Goldsworth Park

After a strong warm up Woking were ready for visiting side Chiswick at Goldsworth Park. Chiswick were first on the scoresheet when they capitalised on a penalty corner after 5 minutes, with Lauren Oliver finding the back of the net. Woking were undeterred and began to apply the pressure, with some brilliant runs down the right hand channel by Claire Emes and Maddie Goldhawk. Woking were soon awarded their first penalty corner, and Lucy Burton-Brown equalised for Woking.

Some great skills from Grace O’Brian earned Woking a penalty stroke, but Paula Nicholas’s flick was just wide of the post. Chiswick was next on the scoresheet with Rebecca Smith finding the backboard in a well worked penalty corner routine, but Lauren White was quick to respond for Woking with an unstoppable deflection taking the score to 2-2 at the half time break.

There was some great play from Woking in the second half, but the team were unsettled when centre back Helen Stone was hit on the leg and had to go off. Shortly after that Emes was shown a green card for not retreating following a free hit. Chiswick made the most of the home sides lapse in concentration and Feline Vandersluijs scored the winner from another penalty corner.

Although coach Cheryl Campling was disappointed with the result, she was pleased with the progress the team has made and looks forward to a crucial game away at Epsom next week.
