Ladies 1's v Leeds Uni 3's - Match Report - 11th Nov 2018


Won 4-1

Driffield 1s V Leeds Uni 3s won 4-1

Off the back of a league topping win yesterday against Leeds Uni 2s, Driffield were determined to maintain their winning streak and make this their 6th consecutive win.
With the opposition winning first push back, Driffield set out strong, the whole team putting pressure on the Leeds side which was soon rewarded by Driffield’s first goal. Some well-linked passes through the midfield of Steph Robinson, Keira Dinsdale-Young and Hannah Horsley up to the forwards Ash Gate and Fiona Tuplin who played the ball around the defenders for Hannah to slot the ball away taking the lead. Keeping up the tempo, this was closely followed by a second close range goal for Hannah after some great passing up the pitch, taking the score to 2-0 to Driffield. Driffield continued to look dangerous winning several short corners which were unfortunately blocked by the Leeds defence.
The wings, Eve Naylor and Vicky Scott made some great runs creating many more opportunities for a goal. Driffield finally capitalised just before half-time, with the team linking together well, some textbook passing led to a great strike from Fiona who found the back board for 3-0.
Any advances from the Leeds attack were quickly closed down by the defence of Henri Williams, Rose Backhouse and Lucinda Collinge with Goal Keeper and captain Lucy Wilson making some great saves to keep a clean sheet in the first half, a solid 3-0 lead.
Expecting Leeds to retaliate, Driffield came out strong in the second half, keeping composure under the pressure from the opposition. Hard work from the defence and midfield kept the score line at 3-0. Newly recruited forward, Lauren Dinsdale-Young put a lot of pressure on the Leeds defence and made some perfectly-times runs to pick up the long balls down the line. Three wasn’t enough for the goal-hungry home side, their effort and team spirit was deserving of another, a short corner was the perfect chance. Defender Henri Williams rose to the challenge with an un-saveable drag flick increasing the lead to four goals.
Leeds however were not phased by the four goal lead and continued to fight back, managing to score a breakaway goal making it 4-1. Driffield re-gained control and dominated play for the remainder of the game.
Two very convincing wins this weekend secured the top spot ahead of next weeks home fixture against Leeds Adel 2.
Girlie of the game went to Henri Williams and donkey to Fiona Tuplin.
