Ladies 1's beat Reading 4-2 away. Goals were scored by Sarah Blackburn, Fee Van Der Sluijs, Rebecca Smith, and Lindsay Forbes.
The ladies 1's started the second half of their season with a good win against Reading. Reading's results had been improving steadily throughout the season so they were expecting a tough game.
After some difficulty persuading the opposition to share the warm-up pitch, Chiswick had a great warm-up and hit the ground running. The intensity at the start of the game paid off with an early goal to Fee, which was followed soon after by a second from a penalty corner which Lindsay smashed into the corner the goal.
Reading played a different structure which put pressure on the midfield and had a few very quick forwards who forced the backs to work hard to shut them down. Becks scored a third goal from a great PC, but Reading hit back just before half-time.
The second half held some good chances for both teams, Reading got a goal which snuck through a penalty corner and Sarah got one of the best goals of the season so far through a diving deflection.
MOM: Sarah Blackburn for her fantastic goal as well as good play throughout the game.
