England Hockey Women's 2nd XI Cup
Chelmsford Ladies II 0 Reading 1A's 1
CHELMSFORD Ladies twos faced Reading Ladies 1A's on Sunday in bitterly cold conditions and frequent snow flurries. Our Ladies Twos were depleted to a minimum squad with no substitutes available against a very strong Reading side.
The first half started evenly with good chances for both sides, but as the game progressed Reading gradually exerted more pressure and finished the half looking stronger.
The second half developed into a more end to end game with both teams having a number of short corners. Reading scored midway through one of the these, but Chelmsford fought hard and had a number of goal scoring chances. The Chelmsford team finished really strongly and ended with some potentially match saving corners, unfortunately they proved to be close misses, leaving the supporters in tatters, and the game finished 0-1 to Reading.

Good luck to Reading in the semi-finals.
