York capitalized on an anxious Lancaster performance to edge out Lancaster in the women’s Indoor Hockey firsts.
York were far more comfortable on the ball in the initial stages. However, despite York’s confident start, Lancaster took the lead in the fifth minute. After neat and tidy play down the flanks, Lancaster’s number one turned and shot swiftly into the bottom right corner.
Lancaster’s lead only lasted a couple minutes, however, as York began to dominate the game, with their number 77 in particular showing exemplary passing and control.
With Lancaster seemingly anxious with the ball, York turned their commanding possession into goals, scoring two before half time.
With the score at 3-1, Lancaster got stuck into the second half, going close on several occasions. Shortly after a goal-line scrap in front of the Lancaster goal, the away side’s number 21 struck an excellent pass off the wall to number three who instantly swiveled to score.
Shortly afterwards, number 21 scored the goal of the match with a high shot into the top left corner to put Lancaster on level terms.
However, Lancaster’s comeback went no further and it was York who finished the game strongly, scoring the winning goal two minutes from time – number seven dragging the ball from the right wing into the bottom left corner. 4-3 was a fair result in the end, with the white rose gaining a much needed two points.
