TOTW – Round 12

TOTW is being split between the Ladies 1s and the Ladies 2s. The Ladies 1s were given a huge boost this weekend when they picked up 3 vital points at home against Lincoln Roses 1s; winning 5-1. Although they are still placed last in the table, there’s only 3 points separating the bottom 5 so it’s going to be very interesting on how it all unfolds in the coming weeks. Another performance like today next week against Cambridge Nomads would probably see them move off the bottom spot. Nomads have lost just once at home this season, so the ladies are in for an excellent fixture.

The Ladies 2s beat Ipswich 6-2 at home with Beth Wombwell scoring a fab five to go first in the scoring charts. Sarah Ganiford also scored her first for the club and the side now sits 2nd in the league.

The men were away against City of Peterborough 7s and having beaten them 8-1 earlier in the season, the side must have been keen to bag a load more goals. However, a freak accident in the opening 5 minutes saw top goal scorer Mark Pears leave the pitch and requiring stitches when he was hit with a ball just above the eye. Despite this, veteran Lee Blades was on hand to bag his first hat-trick of the season and with Josh Dawson adding another made it a comfortable 4-0 win.

The Ladies 3s lost 1-4 at home against March.
