Comets matlock 2015

  The Comets were in action in Matlock last weekend playing the last two matches of Phase 1. The first game against Tyldesley, saw the Comets, despite some excellent defending lose 12-6 (3-0,4-3,2-1,3-3) with goals for Jodi (2), Maisy (2) & Izzy (2). Special mention must go to Niamh for some excellent goalkeeping and also to Jodi who scored with an incredible lob from a near impossible angle close to the corner ( a feat she repeated in the second game ). Being the first match of the day it was an early start for those choosing to travel both days with the Comets facing a tough final match on the Sunday against an experienced and physical Hucknall team. This difference in strength and experience showed as the Comets struggled to retain possession and make the most of their opportunities. However all the team kept going and were rewarded with goals for Jodi (2), Izzy (2) & Anna (1), the Comets eventually losing 16-5 (6-0,3-1,5-3,2-1). Next for the Comets is Phase 2 with them facing Liverpool Liver Birds, Birmingham, Sunderland & Polytechnic for a chance to remain in Division 2. Team: N COD, J Adams, A Barrington, M Clapperton, I Larder, E Pritchard, T Simpson, A Ticehurst, E Tunick, M Warrilow, R Yates.
