1-1 DRAW AT COLLEGE MEADOW IS TWO POINTS LOST FOR BEHC LADIES 1ST XI

Having a 'THOROGOOD' warm up didn't seem to have the right effect for BEHC this week

The Ladies 1st XI were in a confident mood as they began their home fixture against Cliftonville on Saturday 14th October. The opposition were rather lacklustre in their warm-up - as we ran and stretched and generally exerted ourselves they enjoyed a good vape on the sidelines. However, their unique approach proved fruitful as they broke away in the opening 2 minutes and converted a penalty corner. 1-0 and everything Ceri Evans had ever suspected about the importance of a good warm-up was confirmed.

The score remained 1-0 at half-time when coach Edd Thorogood let rip on what he thought of the team's performance thus far. It wasn't great. The second half began brightly with BEHC dominating and upping their individual commitment and work-rate as demanded by coach Thorogood. In truth Cliftonville didn't threaten much and goalkeeper Sarah Masters-Bright was not tested for the rest of the game.

For the last 20 minutes BEHC were camped out in the opposition D but were denied on several occasions by the Cliftonville keeper who played a blinder.
Eventually Vicky Pitt found the backboard with a hard slap into the far left hand corner during the second phase of a penalty corner. Sue Moore came agonisingly close to a winning goal in the final seconds of the game when the Cliftonville keeper tipped her effort over the cross bar.

The score remained 1-1 and BOE certainly felt this was 2 points lost rather than 1 point gained.

Newbie Caitlin Chick was deservedly awarded MOM (and more importantly brought down the average age of the team by several years). 'Late' Kate Petherbridge secured yet another week as DOD - she just LOVES that egg outfit!
