The ladies 4s faced Staines 3s this week in a match that promised to be a close one, as both teams were promoted last season. The 4s started with their usual fire and were quickly on the attack, great passing and movement saw the 4s with several opportunities and even a penalty corner. However their goal came from a great passage of play where Clare Ormerod worked the ball up the sideline to Teresa Knoerr, who found Chloe Hole at the top of the D, Chloe then fired the ball into Sophie Green who found the back of the goal from a midrange shot. The 4s kept the tempo up and managed to hold Staines to 0-1 at half time. However, in the second half Staines fought back and quickly equalised. Both sides then seemed to take their foot off the pedal a bit, with a lot of back and forth play that didn’t see either side break the deadlock. All in all, a fair result and it's great to see both teams stay up in division 1 after getting promoted last season.
MoM: Clare Ormerod for some epic defending and fantastic runs
DoD: Sarah Bougan for her potty mouth
