Overall, it was an encouraging start to the EULC Ladies 1's season with a 7-5 victory over our West Country rivals, Bristol. Despite being 3-5 down as half time was called and the oranges appeared, the 1s were able to dig deep and secure the W for their first match of the 2018/19 season. Notably, not conceding a goal in the second half.
Down in D, Beccie Dunnet was named Woman of the Match for her strong leadership and stable bucket defence. Welsh lacrosse’s sweetheart and team vice-captain Isobel Woods was the other Women of the Match, as she brought home a hat-trick. Other EULC goal scorers were: Clare Jansen, Lissy Garland, Freya Hopkisson and Liv Thomas.
The evening bus back down South saw the return of fresh-factor as we joined forces with the EUHC Men's and Women's 1s. For EULC, with fresh-factor so too returned the infamous unanswered question: “Why was she born so beautiful?”
Get well soon to our goalie Katie Jackson who broke her finger in training on Monday. We hope she has a speedy recovery in time to continue our winning streak.
Beccie Dunnet and Isobel Woods
Goes to Molly Hawker, for successfully breaking her stick on a Bristol player, and getting distracted enough by this minor inconvenience that Bristol were able to score a goal.
Isobel Woods - 3
Clare Jansen -1
Lissy Garland - 1
