A large crowd was gathered at Coombe Dingle as Clifton Robinsons celebrated their 500th game in the Premier League during their match against Wimbledon on Saturday.
The match started with a Wimbledon pushback which was quickly turned over and possession was gained by the home side. Clifton carried forwards some momentum and created many chances, one of which was converted by Catherine Macaulay to put the home side 1-0 up.
Half time came and went with the away side becoming frustrated and pressure building as they were looking to find the back of the net. Shortly after half time the away side did manage to equalise but both teams were playing some great hockey and the game was all to play for.
In the last quarter both teams defended well and had chances at goal however it was Wimbledon who managed to score again and they came away with a 2-1 win. Despite the loss, other results went in the team’s favour, meaning Clifton Robinsons will spend the second half of the season fighting the rest of the top 6 for a playoff spot, ensured of survival. Congratulations to the team!
