Ladies 1's v Leeds Uni 2's - Match Report - 10th Nov 2018


Won 4-3

Driffield 1s V Leeds Uni 2s won 4-3

Driffield Ladies played top of the table Leeds Uni 2s and were looking for their 5th consecutive win in the Premier Yorkshire League. A big match where a win would land them top of the table with a game in hand.
Driffield knew what they were up against and went out strong from the first whistle, with great support from the whole team and perfect attacking runs from our forwards Fiona Tuplin and Ash Gate managed to slipped the ball to Hannah Horsley in the D to score the first goal. Driffield were 1-0 up within the first 5 minutes. The Leeds Uni ladies retaliated quickly and within minutes managed to equalise. The Leeds Uni pressure didn’t stop however Driffield defenders Henri Williams, Molly Coombs, Rose Backhouse and Lucinda Collinge played a solid back line and cleared all oppositions attacks into the Driffield midfield. Some great distribution from our midfield Keira Dinsdale-Young and Eve Naylor managed to find Hannah Horsley who surged into the D and slotted the ball past the Leeds keeper again. This put Driffield ladies in a solid 2-1 lead for half time. A grounding team talk from Goal Keeper Captain Lucy Wilson gave the Driffield ladies focus and determination not to let this game slip away in the second half.
Second half and Driffield again came out strong with some great work from Steph Robinson in the centre who helped keep wingers Vicky Scott and Fiona Tuplin room to power up the pitch and attack the Leeds Uni defence again. Driffield finally won their first short corner of the game where Henri Williams managed to find forward Harriet Dobson who powered the ball into the goal. 3-1 up and Driffield were not finished, the fitness and effort of the home side really pulled through with everyone supporting as a unit. A text book run down the right wing from Fiona Tuplin pulled the ball back into the D for Harriet Dobson to finish another ball into the net, 4-1 up and Driffield felt comfortable a win was in sight. Leeds Uni had not given up yet and a dip of concentration for Driffield allowed the away team 2 goals within quick succession, the game now at 4-3 with 10 minutes to go Driffield really needed to stabilise and hold their own game. Driffield Ladies did just that, the sweet sound of the final whistle ended the game at 4-3.
Donkey and Girly of the day both went to Hannah Horsley
