Ladies draw against Saffron walden 1's
having drawn against the opposition 2nd team week before
Shefford and Sandy Ladies 1s travelled back to Saffron Walden for the second week in a row, this time to face their second team. With 14 players being selected for this weeks game they were ready to work hard and make lots of substitutions. Shefford dominated the first fifteen minutes with some excellent passing down the line between Cullip Wood and Green. The ladies kept piling the pressure on Saffron Walden’s defence however were unable to convert. The defence of Martin, Grainger, Cullip, Gravell, Bartram and Chiswell worked tirelessly to deny Saffron Walden any attacking opportunities. Shefford began to relax and drop the pressure which meant it wasnt long before a Saffron Walden attacker worked around the defence to beat Martin in goal and give them the lead. Shefford were now more determined than ever and won a short corner just before the half time whistle. Injection from Cullip to Green, found Atkinson before being fed back to Green and Hart slapped the ball in the back of the goal. They were now level 1-1.
Second half Shefford continued to press the opposition however were extremely unlucky not to convert. Short corner after short corner were saved. The Midfield of Irvine, Tipper, Fell and Wood making some short sharp passes between themselves to beat the opposition and find the forwards of Gudgin, Atkinson and Green. However Sandy were unable to take the lead.
