HHC Ladies 1st XI vs Southampton University Match Report - 7-0 win
On Saturday, Haslemere Ladies 1st XI took to playing Southampton University. With a couple of our players not feeling up to scratch the team knew it was going to be a tougher game than the last time we played them.
The first half started slowly. We didn't communicate as well as we had been doing before Christmas which led the beginning of the match to be a lot more difficult. However, we didn't conceive any goals thanks to great defending by Bex Mitchell, Kate Hutchings, Mel Knight, Abbie Walhen and Eleanor Abrahams in goal. After our scrappy start we managed to find our feet again when Heidi Wells secured the first goal. With great use of the target ball down the line, and great balls being fed through by the inners Sarah Elworthy and Hannah Enticknap, we managed to put a second goal in the back of the net, scored by Alex Hardy after Donna Reed selflessly played it into her path. The forwards, Celia Hall, Alex Hardy and Alice Toynton managed to sort the press out, making it very effective in enabling the inners, Sarah Elworthy, Donna Reed, Heidi Wells and Hannah Enticknap, to turn the ball over. Our third goal was scored by Hannah Enticknap leading us to a 3-0 lead at half time.
After a quick team talk from coach Pete Crook, we took to the second half in which our performance was a lot better. Our goals came quicker with Alice Toynton giving us the 4-0 lead. Alex Hardy scored her second and the teams fifth goal in and a second for Heidi Wells gave us a score line of 6-0. Our passes were connecting much better in the second half with a better use of transferring the ball and attacking down the opposite half of the pitch. In total, 10 short corners were won putting them to good practice for the games ahead. Kate Hutchings managed to get a goal as our short corner broke down, securing us our 7-0 win.
The first league match after Christmas and having two weeks off due to bad weather meant we didn't play our best however we still managed to put 7 goals away securing us our 3 points. Well played ladies
vs Trojans 3s - 19 Nov 2016
Home Score: 3 - Opposition Score: 1
Match Result: Win
Haslemere Ladies 1st XI made the journey to Trojans to take on their Ladies 3rd XI knowing it would be a challenging match as the opposition lay 4th in the table.
The match started in rain but an alert Haslemere were able to adapt to conditions and started the game as the better side. The first fifteen minutes were dominated by Haslemere and the continued pressure resulted in a goal.... a perfectly weighted line ball from Abbie Whalen to Meg Davies who carried the ball and delivered a great pass to Donna Read who then deftly passed the ball to Heidi Wells to slot the ball past the goalkeeper.
Haslemere stepped off the gas slightly and allowed Trojans back into the game. The home side were able to convert a short corner leaving the score locked at 1-1 at half time.
Haslemere knew they had to start the second half exactly the way they did the first - short sharp passes and using the forwards speedy skills. Again the defence of Haslemere was solid and there were no clear chances for the opposition to covert any goals. Haslemere on the other hand....Donna Read pounced on a rebounding ball saved by the goalkeeper to score Haslemere's second goal.
Continued pressure and brilliant interplay throughout the entire team allowed us to execute an excellent high press and great dedication from Lucy Brownrigg - who was floored by the goalie - resulted in fierce determination from Alice Toynton to score betwixt a goal mouth scurry.
Final score 3-1 to Haslemere and the ladies currently lie second in the table one point behind the leaders.
A great performance from the whole squad - from goalkeeper to centre forward Haslemere were excellent. A special thanks to Meg and Pea who were called up and both had a great game.
We look forward to welcoming Yately next week and hope to continue our winning ways.
