Match Reports - Ladies 5th XI v Southend 321 September 2014
Game : Ladies 5th XI v Southend 3
Result : 3 - 0
Date : Sep 20, 2014
Pushback : 12:30
Venue : Home - Sand
Status : Essex Div 4

The opening match of the 2014/15 season saw the Ladies 5s continue with the form that made them champions of Division 5 last season as they finished 3-0 winners against an assured Southend team.

During the opening 10 minutes Chelmsford found themselves chasing the game a bit as Southend held possession and looked to threaten the defence. Once the first game nerves settled down Chelmsford started to take control and made some great moves down both wings. Emily Bird at left half and Ellie Hay at right half were both outstanding in the attacking play but final balls into the D didn’t threaten the Southend defence so goal mouth chances were few and far between.

Two new U14s joined the Ladies 5th XI for their first senior ladies match – Connie Kitchiner and Caitlin Murray. Both came on in defence for the final 15 minutes of the 1st half and played with composure and confidence while also pushing up the defensive line. This lead to a period of sustained pressure resulting in several chances and 3 penalty corners, one of which was smashed in by Chris Cunningham tight into the bottom left corner to make it 1-0 going into the half-time break.

Southend started the second half with just 10 players, having lost a player on the stroke of half time through injury. Chelmsford were able to capitalise on this and passed the ball well around the pitch, switching from right to left and keeping patient possession. Issy Collins moved to left wing, away from her usual central position and made a fantastic run from outside the final third into the D, around two defenders before lifting the ball high into the top right hand corner making it 2-0.

Several more chances for Chelmsford went begging as the final balls into the D became stronger and more frequent and a couple of penalty corners brought very near misses that should have brought the goal tally higher. But there was one more goal in the game, this time the scorer was one of this summer’s “back to hockey” recruits Karen Gibson. She received the ball clear at the top of the D after a long corner and hit the ball cleanly in past the keeper’s right to make it 3-0.

This was a solid victory in the opening game and hopefully a sign that the L5s can rise to the challenge of the step up to Division 4.
