Fakenham Evergreens II clinch victory

11:04 08 March 2012

Fakenham Evergreens II 3, Loddon 1

Evergreens attacked from the start in this Division Two match and put their opponents under constant pressure, creating chances and several penalty corners.

Midway through the first half Trudi Moulton was well positioned to slot the ball home from close range to give the Greens a well deserved lead.

Soon after Tracy Brain added another when her shot was deflected in off a defender’s stick.

Loddon always looked dangerous on the attack and scored on the breakaway to close the gap.

Brain’s cracking shot from a penalty corner was ruled out by the umpire so the score remained 2-1 at half-time.

In the second half Evergeens continued to dominate, but Loddon’s keeper was in good form. Eventually Evergreens’ brilliant teamwork paid off, after the move of the match. Following a string of one-two passes, the ball fell to Anne Mann who calmly slotted the ball it through the keeper’s legs.
