Big home win secures second spot
The ladies 2's had their last home match of the 2018/19 season against Huntington. Wise words before match from coach Shazz Holton and captain Tash Ingram explained that the Unicorns destiny was in their hands.
Bury managed to take the lead from an Arianne Dyball reverse stick shot which got a Huntingdon foot on line and went in. Bury then defended 3 short corners on the bounce but stayed strong. Only 1-0 at half time.
The second half opened up enormously as the 2's relaxed and exerted their dominance:-
2nd goal Sharon Holton from a short corner
3rd goal Arianne Dyball from 'scary' short corner
4th goal ball round back from right to left, down left wing to find Jo Thompson to score with a reverse stick shot.
5th goal Sophie Beaumont was found in D to tap in
6th goal Mel Bushell found on the right post.
7th goal after changing position to top of the diamond Frankie Konrath found the net.
PoM - Jo Thompson
DoD - Sophie Beaumont
2 quotes from the day !!
Sharon Steven - Jules what did you put in the jelly babies at half time
Jo Thompson - I dribbled round someone
After waiting for results to be posted from other matches in the league 3pm was celebration time as Ely had beaten Cambridge University 3's which meant ladies 2nd are promoted.
