Marlborough 3s vs Devizes 2s


Marlborough 3s vs Devizes 2s By Shahla Davidson

On a glorious hot sunny day, Marlborough gathered for a local derby against Devizes who were lying 2nd in the league.
The game was keenly contested through the 1st half, but it was Devizes who got the upper hand by scoring the first goal during open play. Devizes dominated for most of the first half, but it was some tough defending from Debs, Jane and Jodie and that stopped Devizes from widening the gap and scoring any more goals. We were also kept in the game by some excellent saves from Emma.
Half Time score 0-1 to Devizes.
The second half was completely different and Marlborough started to play some much better hockey and the midfield of Karen and Kirsten, who had an excellent game.
Marlborough had the upper hand throughout the 2nd half and eventually the pressure paid off when we won a number of short corners on the trot. We managed to score from one of the many short corners we had, when Debs scored from a strong straight strike from the top of the D.
1-1 Game On! We continued to dominate and had many more opportunities and short corners, but we failed to convert them.
We had a lot of ball time and the flow of passing between Darcy up to Micah, Bea, Elsie. This resulted in a few near goals, but unfortunately Devises had a couple strong defenders. However, we never gave up and it resulted with us still smiling and fighting until the end!
At the final whistle we were delighted with a 1-1 draw. But there was a mild tinge of disappointment at that the thought of a missed opportunity to get one over our rivals and a team near the top of the league. A better conversion rate at out short corners might have made all the difference. Overall, it was a great team effort by everyone.
