Match Report

Horncastle Ladies 1s were determined to come back from last week’s loss and welcomed Haverhill Ladies 1s for the sixth game of the season. Horncastle started off well with a ball in from Esterhuizen to Roark positioned on far post for a goal just 25 seconds from the starting whistle. The next came just a few minutes later from Wood, again positioned on the far post with a great ball in from Tingey. Again, Horncastle came back fighting - this time a straight strike from Esterhuizen found itself in the back of Haverhill’s goal. With very little play in our defensive half, A.Tokelove took her opportunity to get herself a goal, only being denied by the post. Wood then got her second of the game by working the ball around Haverhill’s keeper and slotting it into an open goal. The final goal of the first half came from a cross by Shelbourn to Roark who, positioned on the penalty spot, slotted it into the left corner. Half time 5-0. Keen to continue the success into the second half, Shelbourn scored from two reverse shots in quick succession. Midfielder Mason optimised on a rebounded shot with a strong slap into the far corner to get herself on the score sheet. The last goal of the game secured Roark her hat trick by ensuring a shot from Wood hit the back board of Haverhill’s goal. The game finished 9-0, with some great performances from all members of the match day squad. Player of the match was awarded to Alex Tokelove.
