NAILS BITTEN TO THE QUICK AND THAT'S JUST THE UMPIRES!

A tense game leading to a sweet tasting victory

Main Blackheath tactic for this match against Sevenoaks 5, was to prevent Sevenoaks from gaining short corners, from which they historically score. During the first ten minutes, four or five were won by Sevenoaks but they failed to capitalise on them as Blackheath’s goalie Rebecca Ward managed her defence line perfectly, inspiring her team mates into attacking mode.

Firstly, Blackheath’s captain Jeanette Grabham passed a wonderful shot to Amanda Layton in the circle who scored a beauty. Then, a great shot from Karen Stevenson was greeted by the stick of Robyn Redbreast who scored another. Meanwhile Sevenoaks tried their best to score and score they did, despite some heroic and exhaustive play by Kathryn Allix and Karen Stevenson in both defense and attack and Juliet Laycock in attack. Just as supporters thought they could not take any more, Karen Stevenson worked her way up the pitch and hit a beauty into the Sevenoaks goal to secure a well-deserved and exhilarating Blackheath victory.

Kathryn Allix was voted Man-of-the-Match. Karen Stevenson and Mandy were Thanks-for-Coming joint winners.
Final Score Blackheath 3-1.
