The crowds gathered for a hugely important match for the ladies 1st XI against Banbury HC at home. It was a strong start from Havant Ladies with some dominant play going forward but they were unable to convert anything in the attacking 25.
There were quite a few breaks from Banbury, which saw some hard work from the Havant Ladies to get behind the ball to defend 5 short corners in a row. Sadly, the defence could only hold them out for so long and Banbury scored to make the score line 0-1.
Knowing the importance of the game the ladies came out hard in the second half with much greater possession of the ball. There was a great break away from Sophie Forrest who kept fantastic composure on the ball, and slotted a pushed ball bottom right hand corner of the goal.
After much fighting th score line remained 1-1 meaning the ladies match against Epsom next weekend is extremely important in their league campaign.
