ANOTHER DRAW BUT AT LEAST ITS NOT A LOSS

By Teresa Philpott

The 18th October saw Marlborough Ladies 3rds take on team Bath Buccs 5 at home.
Bath decided to have a 'kicking back' instead of a goalie, which meant an extra field player for them, keeping Marlborough ladies on their toes.
During the game, Marlborough showed good movement and passing, although Bath were very quick getting to the ball. Unfortunately for them, Annabel did a great run towards the D, hitting the ball in, for a Bath player to touch the ball which deflected into the goal! 1-0 to Marlborough.
Shortly before half time, another battle with in the D, saw Teresa's great goal hanging to score the 2nd goal for Marlborough. Half time 2-0.
The second half, both teams came out fighting. Deb Dellar's amazing return from a hand injury, didn't stop her challenging the Bath Players. Brilliant play from Fliss in left defence, moving the ball up the side line, and Karen and Daisy strong tackles holding the mid field. Joanne and Millie showing some good stick skills throughout play.
2 short corners helped Bath level 2-2. The last 10 minutes of the game was very tense, preventing Bath getting another goal.
A good result for Marlborough after having 3 weeks off. Everyone got a player of the match vote, but overall, Daisy wins.
This leaves Marlborough 2nd in the table with a game in-hand, and 3 points off the leaders!
