L1 v Holcombe – 8th February 2020

Holcombe – 1

Old Bordenian Ladies 1st X1 – 1

As the sun set on Holcombe Park, the game kicked off with some excellent play by OBs, putting pressure on the Holcombe defence. However, some good individual skill from Holcombe players allowed them to go 1-0 up, but Old Boys kept their heads in the game to see out the half at 1-0 down. Sloppy play from Old Bordenians meant that they did not capitalise on the game’s opportunities but kept working hard to get a goal back. The goal came following a succession of short corners won from hard work by Jackie Woodhouse and Jenny Stephen and put away by Becky Elgar. The whole team know they need to improve if they want to get results and cement their place in this league, and, with a week off next week, OBs will work hard in training and go into their next fixture with determination to pick up more points.
