Match Report

Saturday 25th January, the Horncastle ladies 2nd team took a trip to Skegness to play their away game against spilsby 1sts. The first three minutes into the game and horncastle ladies were already one nil up thanks to Daisy Samra taking the ball up the left wing and running into the attacking D. Carrying on, our ladies had multiple chances of scoring on the short corners rewarded to them but unfortunately we were not successful with gaining anymore goals from them. Eventually, spilsby had won the ball off of us and had taken it towards our defensive D. Their players made some strong passes with the ball, finally making its way down to their only goal scorer, resulting in the score becoming 1-1. Towards the end of the first half, Lauren Bingham received the ball from Harriet Wilkinson. Lauren then drove with the ball down the middle of the pitch, taking on the keeper and went on to score her first goal of the day. When half time came the score was 2-1. After a team talk, horncastle went into the second half with confidence. Around half way into the final half, Lauren Bingham went on to score her second goal of the day with a strong, hard pass made by Steph Brayshaw. Finally, spilsby ladies had gained possession of the ball and had manoeuvred their way into our D again. With the impressive block from Sophie Hopwood made on the baseline, horncastle were not taking any chances letting their opponents getting another goal. The final whistle was blown resulting in the end score being 3-1 to Horncastle. Next weekend the ladies 2s have two matches, hosting Alford on Saturday and March on Sunday.
