Clifton Robinsons vs Hampstead and Westminster started off with an end to end battle in the first half at Coombe Dingle in the rain. Both teams had some close efforts but neither team could find the back of the net and the second half was all to play for.

The first goal of the match came from a penalty flick for Hampstead which was scored by Lauren Turner. This lead to a run of solid play by Hampstead which, despite some brilliant penalty corner and deep defence from Clifton, resulted in two more goals for the away side scored by Esme Burge and Sarah Robertson.

The final quarter was more exciting for the home side with some lovely passages of play, and a corner at the last minute converted by Holly Munro resulting in the game finishing 3-1.

The L1s go away to Holcombe this week, in search of their first win.
