Blockley battle to win clash
7:30pm Thursday 11th October 2012 in Sport
BLOCKLEY Ladies made a positive start to their season in West Clubs Women’s Hockey League Severn Division One with a 6-4 win at Newent seconds.
A shaky start for the visitors saw them trail 2-0.
However, Blockley came out strongly in the second period and soon got a goal back through Dennie Honour following a short corner.
The equaliser soon followed from player-of-thematch Fiona Drinkwater but Newent went 4-2 ahead.
This spurred Blockley into life and a shot from the top of the ‘D’ by Donna Whitehouse kept them in the contest and soon after, a deflected shot by Sabrina Rew brought the sides level again.
Blockley kept pressing and added a fifth through Whitehouse before Drinkwater sealed the victory late on.
Blockley’s next opponents are Lansdown seconds on Saturday at Prince Henry’s High School (10am).
