Reading Ladies 2s 3 South Bucks 5By Reading Hockey Club • Oct 28th, 2013 • Category: L2, Match Reports
Reading were 2 nil down after about 20 minutes but 2 goals from short corners brought the score to 2-2 at half time.
It was still chucking it down when the 2nd half started and unfortunately things took a turn for the worse with the visitors snatching 3 quick goals.
But for the last 20 minutes things were a lot more positive and Reading did most of the attacking and played some lovely hockey. Indeed it could easily have ended as a 5 – 5 draw. As it was there was only one further goal for the Blues…..but what a goal. Played down the right from Holly and then on to Sophie Shakespeare who mesmerised a couple of defenders before belting the ball into the goal from an impossibly tight angle.The final score was 5-3 to South Bucks.
