Matlock 3rds 3 Burton 3rds 0

On a snowy, bitterly cold Saturday morning, Matlock 3rds travelled down to Burton on Trent to face a team positioned just above them in the league. Having not won a game all season Matlock were determined to gain 3 points and taking advantage of other games being cancelled, support came in the form of Grace Day and Cath Croney from the 2nds. Matlock started extremely well with Julia Bould driving hard down the right hand side linking well with the centre midfield of Jo Boam and Jenny Kennedy and despite numerous shots on goal from Karen Garner and Becky Doxey Matlock were unlucky not to score. The pressure kept being applied by the Matlock side and when Day went on the pitch she soon found herself in the thick of the action and despite great saves by the Burton Keeper, Day slotted the ball to the left of the keeper putting the Matlock side, deservedly in the lead just before half time.

The second half saw the Burton side rejuvenated and attacks down their right hand side saw the Matlock defence under considerable pressure. Cool as a cucumber, Keeper Chris Poyser, ensured a clean sheet for the Matlock side and solid defending from Holly Maycock, Sarah Newbury and Jenny Allwood ensured any attacks were thwarted and 10 mins into the second half a break by the Matlock midfield saw Day take an opportunity and doubled the score line. A penalty corner with 5 mins to go saw a great delivered ball from Kay Price onto the stick of Day who coolly stopped and struck the ball onto the oppositions back board to score her Hat rick. Great team performance to boost the Matlock teams moral in this difficult league. Thanks to ever dependable Ann ‘Sid’ Bradley for umpiring.
