Maidstone Ladies 1s
|Date||Sunday 20th November|
Maidstone travelled to Ipswich this week with an opportunity to climb up the Investec Hockey Women's Conference East league table.
The visitors started well and the game saw action at both ends. Both sides worked hard for possession and chances were created by both teams.
Although Maidstone were having the better of possession, it was the home side who managed to breach the deadlock against the run of play two minutes from half time with a wide cross-come-shot sneaking in at the near post to make it 1 – 0.
Maidstone responded well and after the break came out strong with the determination displayed in last week’s win. Ipswich pressed high and hard, allowing the Kent side very little time on the ball. The remainder of the game was played out at a high intensity but unfortunately Maidstone were unable to grab the point they felt they deserved, thanks in part to the Ipswich goalkeeper’s last minute save.
Player of the match went to Donna Shalders for some excellent work in defence.
Maidstone host league leaders Surbiton at home at 12:30pm next Saturday, looking to take some points into the winter break.
