On Saturday 7th December, Horncastle ladies 2s played host to CoP 4s who they previously beat 2-1 away earlier this season. The game started tensely, with Peterborough applying lots of pressure on the Horncastle defense. Horncastle remained calm, and with a turn over of possession, the midfield were able to drive forward and create a chance for L.Bingham who slotted the ball to the top corner without hesitation, putting the home side 1-0 up. Not long after, another break of play saw C.Neame drive into the ā€˜Dā€™ and draw out the keeper, before slipping the ball to L.Bingham who scored her second. Just before half time C.Neame drove into the ā€˜Dā€™ and rolled out before slipping the ball into the back of the goal. The score remained 3-0 at half time. Peterborough did not give up and created several chances of their own but failed to break the horncastle defence. Horncastle created more chances and forced saves from the Peterborough keeper. The horncastle defence remained strong and fought off many short corners and the midfield kept possession.
