We were keen to put the events of last week’s game behind us and play some good, competitive and enjoyable hockey and Folkestone rose to that challenge amply. Folkestone’s attacks down the wings were absorbed by Maddy and Ali keeping a watchful eye and deftly channelling any threats away from the D. Kathryn was very much a pair of safe hands dealing with attackers swiftly and making good passes from the back. Folkestone were awarded a number of short corners which were expertly defended. They did manage to convert one short into a goal despite Zoe expertly saving the initial strike on goal. We demonstrated our competitive nature by going after the equalizer and more. Karen and Netty both made some fantastic passes into the D which were narrowly missed by our strikers. Karen grabbed an equalizer from an almighty wallop of the ball at goal from a short, which spurned us all on further. Hannah Morrell’s helpful words at half time helped us to take ownership of our game in the second half. Kat and Rosie commanded the middle of the field making crucial challenges when needed and creating attacking play. There was some great connecting play and one to ones on the attack. Hannah Richmond and Emma impressively worked at getting the ball into the D and Folkestone did well to keep out a second goal. Folkestone also tried to steal a winning goal. However, Zoe showed her prowess as a keeper and kept strong at the back. PoM – Karen and Kathryn TFC – Yanoulla Votes are already coming in for this week TFC before the game has even started!
