Points dropped afterpoor showing
East Kilbride ..... 2 Ardrossan ......... 5
A poor second half display for EK Ladies Hockey Club cost them dear in their league clash with Ardrossan.
After a solid first half the gameplan went to pot in the second, as the local side handed the game to the visitors, who won 5-2.
Paula Richmond stayed composed one-on-one with the keeper to score a lovely goal, but Ardrossan replied with a deflected shot high in to the net from a short corner to leave it 1-1 at half time.
The visitors went 2-1 up only for EK to rally and get one back through Kate Finan’s goal from the post to finish a nice short corner move.
At that point EK had all the pressure and seemed the more likely to push on and win.
But the visitors went in front after being allowed to roam in EK’s 25, and never looked back.
They over-ran EK twice more to win 5-2 in a game EK should really have done better.
