DRIFFIELD LADIES 1 5 - 0 SELBY 1
Another rainy day at the astro pitch saw Driffield Ladies 1s playing Selby. Driffield started with aggression and had many attempts on goal by the forwards, Hannah Horsley, Fiona Tuplin, Emma Speake and Harriet Dobson, but without managing to hit the back of the net. Selby counterattacked but the defence held solid.
Driffield finally managed to break the deadlock with Emma Speake finding the net initially followed by a successful conversion of a short corner by Keira Dinsdale-Young on the right post. 2-0 at half time.
The rain continued to fall but Driffield continued with their commanding play in midfield with Vicky Scott, Keira Dinsdale-Young, Steph Robinson and Kate Moore distributing the ball well. Good, solid switching across the pitch by the defenders of Rose Backhouse, Eve Naylor, Holly Snaith, Henri Williams and Lucinda Collinge meant defensive play was quickly converted to attack and Driffield forward, Emma Speake slotted another in the back of the goal. Selby managed a few attacks which were defended well with Becs Lalor confidently defending the goal mouth.
A further short corner was awarded (probably as a result of Fiona Tuplin’s tenacious attempts to win these) which was successfully converted by Harriet Dobson. A further goal by Hannah Horsley was well deserved which resulted in a convincing win for Driffield maintaining their 3rd place in the league. Girlies were Emma Speake and Keira Dinsdale-Young. Donkey to Holly Snaith for not knowing the difference between an Irish and Scottish accent. Thanks to Yorkwold Pigpro for sponsorship.
