Hockey: Hallam edge thriller

First published in Sport

CITY of York Hockey Club women’s seconds were shaded in a five-goal Yorkshire League premier division thriller by Sheffield Hallam seconds.

Early York dominance was undone by a breakaway Hallam goal. And despite Rosemary Wilkins and top performer Amanda Blacker excelling in defence, two more goals were notched by Sheffield before Vicky Skilton replied with a reverse-stick rebound.

A penalty enabled Fiona Gemmell to convincingly score the flick and trim the arrears to a single goal, but while York applied stern pressure, Sheffield remained strong to win.
