Whitchurch ladies 1st5 Winnington Park 1st 1
Whitchurch bounced back after two losses with a well deserved win at home against Winnington Park.
Whitchurch ladies started the match stronger and settled into the match with long spells of possession. After 20 minutes Whitchurch took the lead as Sarah Field hit the ball past the goalkeeper. Winnington Park came back with two penalty corners but some very strong defending by Whitchurch saw them keep their lead at the end of the first half.
Whitchurch were ready for the second half and soon doubled their lead from a penalty corner after an Emma Harper’s strike deflected off the goalkeeper and converted by Heidi Groom. Whitchurch then relaxed and began to play the fluid attacking hockey which makes them so dangerous when the confident and this saw Sarah Field secure another two goals. Nikki Ellis scored the final goal after an interchange of passing with Donna Reynolds. Whitchurch were punished for a lapse of judgement in the dying minutes that saw Winnington grab a consolation goal last goal.
Sarah Field was awarded player of the match after scoring a hattrick. Whitchurch Ladies would like to thank all supporters that cheered them onto victory.
