Newmarket Ladies 2s v Ely Ladies 2s – Saturday 6th April – away at Ely

Newmarket ladies 2s took a strong squad of 16 to Ely on Saturday for their last away game of the season and it was an intense game from the push back. The first half saw Newmarket with most of the possession and a goal from Kerry O Hara which came from a pass from Ruth Godden and Loren Davenport on the midfield to Kerry on the left wing saw them take the lead before half time. With Sam Brooke as sweeper and  the other players in defence which comprised of Sarah Ganiford, Anna Parker and Nikki Boyle, Ely struggled to find an equaliser until well into the second half. Great individual performances from Donna Keates, Harriet Briggs and goalkeeper Sue Bullimore showed just how much the team are ready for the promotion into the league above next season.  It was when Ely had found the goal  that Newmarket upped the ante again and with Zoe Bailey finding some great passes to Verity Mac Mahon on the right wing who was named man of the match, there were several chances for Newmarket to take the lead again but the goal never came and the score remained a draw at 1-1.
