|Team||Ladies 2nd XI|
|Venue||Penair School (TR1 1TN)|
|Result||W 3 - 2|
|Scorers||Emma Good, Francesca Small|
After a good warm up on the muddy carpet the starting whistle blew and away we went. After a great first few minutes, forwards Sarah Rawle and Emma Good were quick to attack with Emma slotting the ball calmly past the Newquay goalie. 1-0 buccs.
Buccs continued to put pressure on the Newquay defence with Abi Johnston, Ali Davies, Anna Clarke and Non Roberts making great runs along the side line and through the middle, 'penetrating ' the D. Before long the ball found its way to Chessie Small who executed the most perfect reverse hit into the goal. 2-0 buccs.
Newquay came out hard in the second half but the outstanding defence of Janet Gubbin, Sophie Swaile, Claire Widger and Emma James were amazing. Buccs defended 7 short corners well with Jess Amps taking multiple shots to the body. Gk Hayley Oliver was on fire saving shots form open play and shorts all over stopping Newquay from taking the lead.
Buccs managed to relieve the pressure and were finally awarded their first short corner of the game as the final whistle blew. Emma dragged the ball out to Abi who perfectly stopped the ball and Sarah smacked the ball onto the backboard.
Sticks went flying (much to Widger's concern) as we all piled in to celebrate. 3-2 Buccs.
