Ladies 3 unable to find last minute equaliser
TCL Div 2
Banbury Ladies 3s – 2 Newbury & Thatcham Ladies 2s – 3
BHC ladies 3s knew this was going to be a tough tie against top of the table Newbury & Thatcham. Banbury took control of the game for the opening quarter, but were unable to convert their pressure in to a goal. N&T fought their way back in to the game, and shortly before half time took first blood with a deflected goal from a penalty corner. Banbury were still buoyant going in to the second half, but two further quick goals from N&T pushed them 3 goals behind. In the final 15 minutes Banbury managed 2 consolation goals, both from Joanne McMeekin, the second with a great assist from Captain Becky Lee who rounded the N&T defence and set McMeekin up with a pull back from the backline. Sadly it was too little too late, and despite a last second penalty corner Banbury were unable to find the equalising goal.
