Hockey: York Ladies valiant but in vain
10:51am Tuesday 25th September 2012 in Sport
CITY of York Ladies first XI battled in vain as they started their North Hockey League division one term with a 2-1 loss at Leeds University.
The hosts took York by surprise with a rapid opener and it needed a half-time re-shuffle to get York back into contention.
However, Leeds added a second before the visitors countered with a short corner struck neatly into the net by Annabel Lee.
Inspired by star performer Paula Clough in midfield, they applied pressure but could not find a leveller.
