Matlock 3rds 1 v Staveley 1sts 0 19/10/2013

Facing a tough physical Staveley team, Matlock started the game well with some attacking play from midfielders Mary Liddiard and Chloe Farmer. Matlock pressured the Staveley defence and had many opportunities to score in the first fifteen minutes. Staveley then started to attack more and the experienced midfielders Tess Mitchell and Cath Croney maintained composure in the centre whilst the defence of Jenny Kennedy, Jenny Brown and Jenny Allwood held Staveley off. Matlock were awarded several penalty corners and it was a strike from Jane Proctor to the left of the keeper that put Matlock ahead.

Matlock held firm in the second half against constant pressure from the opposition. Keeper, Amanda Jaques, made some magnificent saves, one flying off the top of her helmet, to ensure Matlock kept a clean sheet.

Claire Croll, stepping in as sweeper, kept the defence in order throughout the game. Matlock’s younger players, Becky Doxey and Becca Knowles, made some great runs up the pitch to trouble the Staveley defence.

This was a great team effort against a side, who were joint top of the league.
