Bump in the Road

By

Beaten by an experienced team.

As Driffield Ladies 1s ventured over to Dewsbury for their first taste of Dewsbury HC this season, stepping onto the pitch felt like a journey into the great unknown. As the opening whistle was blown, the ladies 1s started strong, moving the ball around Dewsbury, who were well drilled and patient with their approach. It wasn’t until 15 minutes in that Driffield secured the first goal of the game, a ‘Henri Williams special’ which was hit in from a short corner and deflected into the goal by a Dewsbury body. Dewsbury soon fought back with an equaliser from their ferocious Scottish International player, who later proceeded to foul Kay Bloomfield and send her tumbling across the pitch in a superman-esque manner. At 1-1 Driffield were determined to maintain their winning streak. Hannah Langley took her chances with a fireball strike which was deflected off the keeper and picked up by Bloomfield. As she drew back composed and ready to finish what Langley had started, the umpire blew his whistle for a questionable foul. Feeling like a child who had just had its candy taken from them, Driffield marched on, confident that there would be more goals yet to come. A solid midfield performance from the likes of Keira Dinsdale-Young, Steph Robinson and Eve Naylor provided good distribution to the forward line. It wasn’t long before Fiona Tuplin saw her opportunity and proceeded to take a mammoth strike from just outside the D, which was unfortunately not picked up. Some unpredictable umpiring led to cards given which unsettled Driffield. Despite some great defensive play from the Ladies 1s Dewsbury managed to score again leaving the final score 2-1 in very frustrating game. Girly of the game was Keira Dinsdale-Young.
