Slazengers 3 4 - 1 Sheffield Hallam 4
By Karen Milbourn
So glad there's two halves to this game.
We are just going to ignore the first half of the game, point to note when the ball is struck outside the D there is the chance of it getting a feather edge touch of a stick so always play ball. 2-0 down at half time.
We started afresh in the second half with our 'Sheffield Shout Out 'coming out more focused and determined. Slazegers got a quick third goal but then the Sheffield were on the attack and within the first 10 minutes we had a flurry of short corners but unfortunately not able to convert any to goal. The attack continued with lots of action in the Slazengers D and after some great battles from Harjar and Hannah R a lovely cross from Hajar found a sprinting Vikki Beavis, practically diving with her stick outstretched to get the last tap to secure the goal.
During the match a number of people found themselves lying on the Astroturf, not all through any fault of their own, well done Nina for getting back up after that disgusting foul. Hannah R what we can we say taking on the on keeper, both feet left the ground in a spectacular cartwheel.
Sheffield had some lovely periods of play: great passing, kept the width, some lovely defensive deflections to prevent further goals and we still came off with a smile on our face.
Girl of the game to Hannah Richardson followed by Nina Sanderson.
