Matlock 3rds 2 Vs Woodlands 0

Fortunately for Matlock, only having 10 players was not such an issue when your opposition only has 9. With 2 players roaming about Derby separately trying to find the right pitch, Matlock had to start with 10 players and struggled against a strong Woodlands team. With inaccurate passing and ball hogging Matlock just couldn’t get into the rhythm of the game and found themselves defending for much of the first half, rarely making it across the half way line. Fortunately great defending by Sarah Newbury and Fleur Rhodes, ensured the score line stopped at 0-0 at half time despite the numerous short corners Matlock conceded. With more players arriving in the second half, and correct positions resumed, Matlock were able to start playing their game and found the pass and follow moves easy especially with Annalise Rowntree, Alice Harwood and Anna Rowsen Jones linking well on the left. Short corners galore followed and it wasn’t long before Matlock were rewarded and an amazing 3 touch pass which resulted in Lowri Heap slotting home a fabulous goal. 10mins later Heap scored her second goal from another well executed short corner. Matlock continued to dominated in midfield with Jo Boam linking well with Kerry Hallam and Beth Hamil-Keays and with the opposition tiring as a result of only having 9 players, Matlock were rewarded with a Penalty Flick, Unfortunately Rhodes was unable to convert it as the oppositions goal keeper made a great save but it didn’t matter as Matlock had secured the well-deserved 3 points.
