Harrogate Ladies 2’s v Driffield Ladies 1’s
With this fixture in doubt it was a yoyo morning but eventually (20mins late for some) we set off for Harrogate where our opposition were chomping at the bit to scalp the table toppers.
To summarise the whole game in a sentence would be to say ‘Driffield were on the back foot and Harrogate were hungry for victory’. An excellent game from captain Lucy in goal and girlie of the game Molly at sweeper (ably assisted by the whole team) kept the match level until late into the second half when a fierce shot broke the deadlock.
With no shots on the Harrogate keeper and no short corners awarded for Driffield it was a lean match for the forwards.
Despite this second defeat of the year, Driffield are still 3 points ahead at the top of the table and hopefully the tides will turn next week and confidence will return. At home to Sheffield Hallam at 12:30pm.
Thanks to Ash Gate for supplying a spare stick to donkey Henri who ‘forgot’ hers and various other catastrophes that struck ‘on one of those days!’.
