Ladies Match Reports
A brief report on an amazing afternoon of hockey today - huge thank you to everyone who turned out to play and to Maggs and Mat both of whom gave up their Sunday afternoons to guide and encourage us to a great performance!
The Guildford Ladies 1s hosted Southampton early Saturday morning. The ladies have been having a tough run of it...things looked to be steadily getting better, but a win was needed. See how it turned out...
The Ladies 1s faced Henley this week. This was once again a game that the Ladies were desperate to win to keep themselves out of relegation. It was a hot day and perfect weather to go out and win!
On a bright and sunny day at Broadwater, the Ladies battled against Surbiton. A close affair but who came out on top...
The Ladies 1s were away against Spencer on the 22nd of Feb. They needed to win again to stay out of the relegation zone and Spencer are a tough opposition who can be very physical. The Ladies were expecting a hard game and Spencer did not disappoint. The pressure was on from the start.
The Ladies 1s had a home fixture against Marlow on the 15th and the weather was not looking promising! We needed to win again to stay out of the relegation zone and Marlow were trying to secure their mid-table position. Surbiton had been losing as their international players were away, so, Guildford needed all the points they could get to stay ahead of Oxford who were playing Surbiton...
The Ladies 1s were out of the relegation zone for the time being, but as two teams go down, Guildford need to make sure we win a few more to stop teams below catching up. We felt we could possibly beat Brighton and were ready for a tough game against them.
After the previous week’s win, the Ladies 1s were still 2nd from bottom and in the relegation zone but on the same points as Oxted, so needed a win to move ahead of Oxted into the safe zone. Up against Eastcote, the Ladies knew they could win this one - they felt much more cohesive team than the last time they played Eastcote...
Hard work in defence and a few short corner opportunities for Guildford and the scoreline went our way today. Great work, ladies!!!!
