Match Report

It was February the 1st on a bright but blustery morning at Horncastle Hockey Club. Horncastle ladies 2s were set to play a very defensively strong Alford 2nd team. Alford started the game with only 10 players and within the first ten minutes L Bingham had received a baseline pass from H Todd ( aka Gary) to sneak in a clever first goal just past the goalkeeper. Horncastle kept the pressure up on Alfords defensive line and a few minutes later were rewarded with L Bingham’s second goal on the day, through a similar pass into the D from H Todd. Halftime came and the score stayed at 2-0 through some great saves made by Alfords goalkeeper. Horncastles captain Steph Brayshaw (who was stepping in for Annabel Rinfret) gave some encouraging words which saw H Todd make a thunderous run down the pitch into Horncastles attacking D and hitting the ball into the back of Alfords goal within seconds of the second half. Shortly after L Bingham made it 4 for Horncastle through a flick into the back post of a well placed ball into the D from center midfielder S Brayshaw. Horncastle continued to pass the ball well and through that received many shorts corners creating multiple chances but not scoring off them. Horncatles 5th goal came through one of these short corners by a slip from S Bradshaw at the top of Alfords D to H Wilkinson who slotted in her first goal of the match. The final goal of the match came from L Bingham pushing the ball calmly into the back of Alfords goal of another brilliant assist from H Todd to bring her goal tally up to 4. The final whistle was blown resulting in a 6-0 win to Horcastle Ladies. Player of the match was awarded to a well deserved Step Brayshaw.
