Ken­dal trip a piece of cake for the ladies

The Chronicle - - Grassroots Sport -

WHIT­LEY Bay and Tynemouth Hockey Club’s se­nior ladies’ team en­joyed an em­phatic 7-0 vic­tory at Ken­dal.

Af­ter a minute’s si­lence to mark Re­me­brance Sun­day, Bay pressed Ken­dal from the bully-off and en­joyed fan­tas­tic pos­ses­sion.

Alex Plum­mer, worked tire­lessly from the back and made great con­nec­tions down the right with Har­riet Moore, Faye Gar­land and Cailtin Newby.

The first goal came af­ter eight min­utes of great for­ward play.

Fur­ther strikes were reg­is­tered from two fan­tas­tic drag flicks by Lot­tie Gill and fine fin­ish­ing by Joss Plum­mer, So­phie Ward and Caitlin Newby.

Bay went into half time with a 6-0 lead.

Ken­dal found their touch in the sec­ond pe­riod.

Use­full young play­ers up front meant Bay’s de­fend­ers had to make sev­eral cru­cial tack­les.

One fur­ther goal was scored by Kerry-Anne Hast­ings.

Bay travel to Dids­bury North­ern this week­end hop­ing for a sim­i­larly pos­i­tive per­for­mance.

■■BAY’s se­nior men’s side suf­fered last-minute agony as they con­ceded a penalty stroke to draw 2-2 at home to Wake­field HC.

The first half was a close af­fair with both sides hav­ing chances.

Chris Traynor missed the opor­tu­nity of the half when he put a penalty flick on to the cross­bar.

In the sev­enth minute of the sec­ond pe­riod the vis­i­tors took the lead as Sam Shute’s shot slipped un­der Jor­dan Thomp­son in goal and drib­bled over the line.

How­ever, when a sin bin left Wake­field with 10 men Whit­ley Bay took full ad­van­tage and laid siege on the York­shire side’s goal for the next 10 min­utes.

Traynor drew the teams level as he fol­lowed up a re­bound of his own ini­tial shot, slap­ping the ball high into the top corner.

It was then Wake­field’s turn to have the man ad­van­tage as Jack­son and Ithur­ralde were both sin-binned.

How­ever, on the break Bay took the lead again with just a minute left through Ethan Skirv­ing.

The drama did not end there, though, as Bay were caught out with a quick restart, Jonathan Stod­dart not get­ting five yards and be­ing im­me­di­ately sin-binned.

Down to nine men, Bay could not stop the ball be­ing played high and wide and a penalty stroke was awarded for the ball hit­ting Mike Pollock’s leg. Greg Moore­house dis­patched the re­sult­ing flick.
