Northop Hall 1st 5 v Whitchurch Ladies 1st 4
Whitchurch travelled away to Northop Hall this weekend and were hoping after a recent victory in the Cheshire tournament to secure a win away.
Whitchurch took the game to Northop Hall from the beginning and were rewarded when Lisa Sullivan pounded the ball into the goal from the top of the Dee.
Whitchurch continued to attack and good passing from Sullivan and the runs of Jo Dimelow down the right saw Nikki Ellis and Sarah Field (2) score three further goals giving Whitchurch 1-4 lead at half time.
Northop Hall did not take their first half performance lying down and quickly responded with two goals in 5 minutes. Whitchurch lost their momentum from the first half and found it hard to keep Northop Hall from running at them with pace.
Northop Hall grew from strength to strength and scored two more goals in twenty minute period before Whitchurch rallied towards the end of the match in an attempt to get a draw but it was a too little too late.
