Ladies' 1s Win to go 4th in League

 19th Oct 2019

20190921-Ladies1s-TeamA bright start by the Guildford a lot of the early possession which resulted in several penalty corners that, unfortunately, were not converted.

Reading were struggling to settle into the game and each time they started to attack, Guildford broke down the play and countered. From a free hit, Kate “Wooly” Wooldridge passed the ball from Guildford’s 25 across the pitch to Issie Francks who drove to the Reading D where she found Kelly Taylor who scored to give Guildford the lead.

Reading fought back with Guildford keeping them at bay until the 27th minute when they were awarded a penalty corner that they converted to bring the scores level. Guildford continued to have much of the possession but did not capitalise and the scores remained level at half time.

The start of the second half saw Guildford with a stronger focus and determination and within 2 minutes they had forced another penalty corner. Maddie Richardson flicked the ball across the goal with Niamh Mann tapping the high ball into the net. The game continued with opportunities for both sides with both keepers being kept quite busy.

Guildford maintained the upper hand and played the game out to take the win 2-1.
