On another snowbound weekend for NHC, the only fixtures to go ahead were the Ladies’ 2s on Saturday and Ladies’ 1s on Sunday (thanks to the herculean efforts of a number of volunteers).
Ladies’ 2s: 2-1 win vs Cambridge Nomads 2 (Away)
Newmarket Ladies’ 2s stormed to victory despite the snow as they scored two late goals after being behind for almost the entirety of the match. Tracy Cockerill was the heroine of the piece as her brace lit up the aptly-named Coldhams Common and sent the Yellow & Blue Machine home with three points in the bag.
Ladies’ 3s: 5-0 win vs Ely City 3 (Home)
Ladies’ 1s: 0-2 loss vs Harleston Magpies 2 (Home)
The brave and hardy volunteers of Newmarket Hockey Club showed they’re just as good with broom sticks as hockey ones and managed to clear the snow-covered pitch in time to host Harleston Magpies at 12pm. The Ladies went down 0-2 in a good game with plenty of quality on show from all.
