12/10/13 Whitchurch Ladies 1st 5 v Oxton Ladies 3

Whitchurch Ladies were very upbeat after the last match against Wrexham.

Whitchurch started the match strong and early into the first half were dominating the match. The ladies had an early goal with a penalty corner strike from Emma Harper at the top of the dee. Whitchurch were eager for more and were soon two up as a Nina Hodges swept in a deflection from another penalty corner.

Whitchurch didn’t finish there and soon after Sarah Field scored a contender for goal of the season whilst running away from the goal, turning and striking the ball into the top of the net. Oxton came back and scored a penalty flick beating keeper Sarah Latham just before the end of the first half.

Whitchurch scored their fourth goal in the second minute of the second half as Nina Hodges swept in her second goal on the back post. As Whitchurch tired Oxton scored and the game became very evenly matched as Nikki Ellis converted a rebound from a Whitchurch penalty corner. Oxton scored their third in the final minutes.

The ladies are away on Saturday against top of the table Lymm. Whitchurch would like to thanks Steve Glover for umpiring the match.
