Whitchurch Ladies 1st 1 Chester Ladies 2nd 3
Whitchurch Ladies 1st start the season in the Cheshire 1st Division.
The first league match was against the recently promoted Chester 2nd team. The sun was shining for the 12:30pm push back. Whitchurch started the match strong with several chances by Nikki Ellis and Sarah Field. Chester quickly counter attacked and managed to secure a goal late into the first half. Whitchurch kept composure throughout the first half and were up-beat at half time.
The second half saw Chester come out with more determination and quickly scored second goal from a deflected short corner. Chester had the upper hand after the goal and soon secured a third goal from a penalty corner.
Whitchurch Ladies continued to battle and with a stunning performance by Sarah Field secured an own goal late into the second half. Whitchurch bounced back but was not enough time to pull the game back. The man of the match went to well-deserved Sarah Field.
Craig Hockenull (Coach) said ‘Whitchurch Ladies 1st will take many positives from the match and look forward to grow from here on in we look forward to the next game’. The next game is away at Northop Hall Ladies 1st push back 13:30 at Hawarden High School.
