Ladies 1's v Wakefield 3's - Match Report - 27th Oct 2018


Won 4-0


Driffield played Wakefield Ladies 3's on Sat looking for their 4th win in the Premier Yorkshire League where they are sitting 5th at the moment with a game in hand.
Driffield looked strong from the start with some good attacks building up from the defence. Sometimes when the ball is in the attacking half so much it almost makes it harder to score but a surging run down the right wing and round the back line from Fiona Tuplin who pulled the ball back to the Penalty spot for Hannah Langley to slot the ball away for Driffield to go 1 up proved it to be not so.
A good practice session on short corners at training proved valuable as after getting one short corner given for a foul in the D a strong fast injection of the ball to the top of the D to the waiting striker Henri Williams who had a clean hit to the right post for Kiera Dinsdale-Young to deflect the ball in the back of the net - making it 2-0 before half time.
Unfortunately Wakefield came back out with a strong 10 min spell but the Driffield defence soaked up the pressure then the ladies got their shape back and once again applied the pressure. Eve Naylor worked the ball well down the right getting the ball across the D to the waiting Fiona Tuplin who was completely shoved out of the way of the on coming ball, which resulted in a penalty flick given and duly put away by her, 3-0.
The final goal came as a result of another foul in the D this time the ball was slipped to the left to the waiting Ash Gate who smashed the ball across to right post where again Kiera Dinsdale-Young was waiting this time with a lovely turn, slipping the ball through a tight slot to score her second goal and getting Girlie of the game.
This was a good 3 points for the ladies who are building strength in this league.
Donkey of the game, Fiona Tuplin .....?.
