Ladies 2nds 0 v 0 Rugby & E.Warks 3rds

Player of the Match:Ella Davenport
Donkey of the Day:Natalie Round

Atherstone Ladies 2s remain unbeaten this season following a nil-nil draw with top of the table Rugby and East Warks 3s. It was a gutsy performance from all, despite the pouring rain and howling wind.

The Ladies started the game with clever tactics, putting early pressure on the opposition with the half court press; however it was the second half where the ladies showed they truly wanted the win and Ella Davenport earned her Man of the Match for some awesome interceptions and passes.
Both teams had numerous short corners but none were converted; the opposition even failed to score when they faced a depleted defence as Natalie Round earned her Donkey of the Day and broke the defensive line early. Cakes and cookies from Rachel and Dan were a welcome sight to the soaking wet team after the game, but 'what a game to end on' were their parting words as we enter a second national lockdown and a rest from hockey for a few weeks (their kit may have dried out by then).
