This was it, one point between us and promotion!!! Saturday the 18th was the day buccaneers played away at Clifton. After a few wins under Buccs belt Buccs had their heads held high going into the game. Buccaneers were composed from the beginning and had majority of the possession. After Olivia Hamilton's stunning goal Buccs shocked Clifton into a panic. Buccs managed to get a few short corners but this time were not successful. Courtney Hansford hit the ball towards Netty Pellow on the baseline winning a penalty stroke. Tess Hannah stood up to the mark but unfortunately the goalie saved it. The half time whistle went and Buccs were happy for their solid performance in the first half.
Second half of the game, Buccs remained strong, Clifton managed to get a few short corners but Buccs amazing defence wasn't going to let anything go passed them. The most important and magnificent goal came from Lydia Thacker.
The final whistle blew and Buccs get that important point to lead us into promotion to National league next season.
