Hockey: Defiance of Acomb ladies dented by defeat

Published in Sport

BATTLING qualities proved in vain for Acomb ladies I after they were toppled 2-1 by Yorkshire League division two visitors Ben Rhydding III.

Acomb started brightly moving the ball well with Vicky Wrigley linking well for Wendy Watson to put strong crosses into the ‘D’.

As Rhydding countered, Acomb coped well with everything the weather and their opponents threw at them only to trail 1-0 at half-time. A sense of injustice deepened when a penalty stroke was not awarded after a goal was prevented by a defender’s foot on the goal line.

Acomb soon equalised through captain Kerry Woods, but a tight second half ended with a late Ben Rhydding winner.
