On Saturday the Clifton Robinsons Ladies’ 1st XI were excited to play Wimbledon at home in the top six of the Women’s Premier Division.

The game started off with Clifton on the front foot, although Wimbledon were playing well, and the game was end to end. The first quarter ended with no goals but some high quality hockey was played and there were some great shots on goal for both sides.

Wimbledon opened the scoring in the second quarter putting them one goal ahead of the home side.

The game continued to be close, however momentum was building up for Clifton. In the third quarter Phoebe Richards fired a ball into the top left hand corner over the keeper after a smooth counter attack for Clifton, meaning the score was now 1-1.

Shortly after, Wimbledon scored again, and after this no more goals were scored, resulting in the match ending 2-1 to Wimbledon.
