Whitchurch ladies 1s 11 Macclesfield ladies 4s 1

Katie Plant opened the scoring deflecting home a penalty corner. Jane Williamson got the second not long after deflecting home a cross from Chloe Crump on the right wing. The third came as Lisa Sullivan drove down the base line and picked out Nicola Workman for the third. With almost the last action of the half Macclesfield scored from a penalty corner.
Whitchurch came out in the second half to prove a point and attacked from the off. Katie Plant scored another from a penalty corner followed by a ten-minute hattrick from Sue Read and not to be out done Katie Plant scored her third of the game. Jane Williamson scored her second of the game shooting from the top of the dee past the stranded keeper and Chloe Crump got on the score sheet poaching off the keeper’s pads. In the final minutes of the game Ellie Windsor deflected home a cross from Catherine Gresty for her first team goal.
