Horncastle ladies travelled away to Bury St Edmonds expecting a tough game. Horncastle dominated play, pressing high up the pitch creating several chances. keeping a disciplined formation, allowed Horncastle to play the ball around the back to generate counter attacks. Bury made a few attempts at goal however our defence were strong and intercepted the ball, releasing it wide for a rapid counter attack. Bury had a break down the left side with a player running top D who received the ball and was immediately closed down by Neame who ferociously slid through clearing the ball. Horncastle had a short corner which narrowly missed. The score was 0-0 at half time. Going into the second half Horncastle continued to dominate using lots of short, sharp passes to get round the Bury players. Bury stepped up their game, leading to a couple of short corners against Horncastle, however Horncastle defended well, and their attempts did not result in a goal. In the dying minutes Horncastle conceded a short corner, with bury breaking into the D, their shot rebounded off the post, with their follow up shot being saved on the line by a committed A Tokelove.
