Linaker nets pair in victory
Runcorn Ladies II 2 Macc’field Ladies III 0 RUNCORN Hockey Club’s ladies’ second string continued their fine start to the campaign with a 2-0 home win over Macclesfield Ladies’ thirds last Saturday.
The weather was bright and sunny for the clash with the home side keen to respond from their 4-2 loss at Wrexham the previous week.
A tight opening half between two wellmatched sides saw the hosts take a narrow lead into the interval thanks to a superb goal from Cath Linaker.
And the same player added another in after the break to confirm the win. Linaker collected the player-of-the-match honour while the players’ player award went to goalkeeper Lisa Snelson. ●
