After a tie last week Staveley were pumped up and ready for a win in today’s Plate fixture against Matlock Sixes.
Staveley started strong with some great attacking plays and many shots on goal. After lots of pressure, Matlock cracked when Catherine forced an own goal, 1-0 Staveley!
As Staveley players (Hannah) got increasingly angry with themselves, Staveley still pushed forward aiming for another goal. After a couple of screams and balls to the body, Emma rewarded us with another shot at goal and a score! 2-0 to Staveley just at the half time whistle!
After a rousing half time talk from Hannah Curley Staveley pushed off strong again and although Matlock came back strong Staveley continued to dominate with another goal after 15 minutes from Grace. Grace’s girly air-punch was a wonder to behold.
Drama followed quickly as Andrea went down heavily with a twisted knee and had to be helped off to the sidelines. We hope she’s feeling better soon.
Staveley hung on with 10 men to finish 3-0. Well done Staveley. Told you plates were better than cups!
