Match Report

 Ladies 1’s vs Sevenoaks 
Surprise surprise it’s an away game far away so it’s another early meet, only this time in the rain. Now on the way to the pitch we took an accidental detour but we were still going to arrive on time so it doesn’t matter right? We are about 5-10 minutes away from the pitch when we get a call from our captain “the pitch is flooded” well that sucks... we arrive at the pitch and it isn’t looking good.

Our push back was meant to be 10:30 but as it draws nearer a decision still hasn’t been made about whether we will play or not. Finally the water is cleared off the pitch and it becomes barely playable and because we are now starting at 11:00 we have to sacrifice 5 minutes off each half just to get a warm up. 
Finally to the game. They bay are back to their old ways of conceding first... and second... and third. However, there was some good play in the first half just not enough to score leaving the half time score 3-0 to Sevenoaks. 


With a kick up the arse at half time the bay were determined to not let a bad pitch get in they way of a goods day hockey. 

The second half was a lot better than the first. Rachel was the one to kick off the goal scoring slotting the ball into the goal and suddenly there was a light at the end of the tunnel. Jade scored the second goal giving the team more motivation to score again. Unfortunately the opposition scored another meaning we had to work extra hard to get even. Jade scored the third goal after sophy slipped the ball. Sharon scores our 4th goal so we were drawing 4-4 and in with a chance of winning this game. That was not to be, however, as in the final 2 minutes (which didn’t really feel like 2 minutes but you know I’m not the umpire) Sevenoaks scored their 5th and final goal. 
This leaves the final score at a 5-4 loss for Herne Bay.
