Newmarket Ladies 1’s v Peterborough Ladies 3’s: 8-0 win to Newmarket
Newmarket put on a solid performance against a young Peterborough side last weekend.
From the off Newmarket dominated possession and were quick to make tackles forcing Peterborough into their defending D.
Isabel Hooley and Jazz Wombwell were quick to mob up and spilled balls at the back. Sue Bullimore in goal had little to do but was still constantly on her toes communicating with the defense.
From a scrappy section of play Newmarket managed to prod over the line courtesy of Lucy Brown.
Tania Fisher, Gail and Claire McDonnell were virtually unstoppable, not allowing anything to get through midfield. Claire McDonnell was next to strike, retrieving her own re-bound to slot home. Hayley Stoneman was also on target and hit in from top D.
Excellent leg work kept Martha Crowhurst ahead of her opposition; she was a constant threat down the wing. She provided a cross for Claire McDonnell to get her second bringing Town to 4-0 at half time.
Hungry for more Newmarket were looking to double their score in the second half and on form Lucy Brown got another 3 in quick succession, a sweep, a mid D shot and a deflection.
Jenny Richards and Zoe Bailey were looking strong down either side of the pitch allowing Newmarket to free-flow with the ball with no danger of letting their lead slip.
Peterborough showed a lot of promise and did occasionally catch Newmarket off guard; despite this the game was firmly in Town’s control. Newmarket’s final goal came from Di Thomas who made contact with a cross to sweep home giving Newmarket an 8-0 win.
