Rare Defeat

[Driffield 1st team match report 12/01/19

Driffield first team got off to a bit of a rusty start for their first game of 2019 after the long Christmas break and maybe a few too many mince pies. Leeds Adel were a strong team from the whistle and pressed Driffield closely on the ball but with strong defence and tackles from Molly Coombs, Henri Williams and Lucinda Collinge, the score remained even at 0-0. The first goal of the match unfortunately came from Leeds as they were awarded a penalty flick just before half time, for an accidental stop on the line at a short corner, which saw them lead into the second half 1-0. Driffield went into the second half improved and more determined with more accurate passes and plenty of opportunities created by midfielders Keira Dinsdale-Young, Eve Naylor and Steph Robinson passing it out to wingers Vicky Scott, Alice Walker and Ash Gate. Leed’s second goal unfortunately meant they increased their lead to 2-0 but Driffield never gave up with some good saves by keeper and captain Lucy Wilson and the forwards Fiona Tuplin, Harriet Dobson and Hannah Horsely had some close shots to try and bring Driffield back into the game. Unfortunately none of them were successful and the final whistle blew at Leeds Adel 2 Driffield 0. An unfortunate loss for Driffield but a friendly atmosphere from the opposition as preparation takes place for next week’s game.
