Chelmsford II 5 Ipswich II 0

East Women’s Hockey league

Second XI Cup

WITH a very similar team to Saturday we knew we had a strong chance of putting out a good performance.

Ipswich although a league above have not won a game yet this season!

We started strongly creating an immediate chance on goal and winning a penalty corner that Sarah deflected in from the initial Sophie Green strike. We continued to attack using both wings and the passing moves and chances created were excellent. Maddy Newlyn got the second goal a strike straight through the keepers legs.

Liz Holmes, player of the match, kept the midfield under control and stopped Ipswich attacking through the middle of the pitch. The third goal came from a pinpoint cross from the right wing which found Sarah who put the ball over the keepers head and into the back of the net.

The second half found Ipswich trying to control the game but the determination and positive attitude of the Chelmsford prevented Ipswich from making many clear chances. The fourth goal came from an excellent run from Sarah who found Ally Farrar unmarked in front of goal who duly slotted it in. Finally an excellent fifth goal from Sarah sealed the win and a place in the quarter finals in February. Overall an excellent weekend for the seconds and everyone involved. Well done every one.
