Ludlow Hockey Club
Kington v Ludlow 1:1
A strong Kington side came out attacking from the start, but Ludlow stayed calm, good defence and skilful play kept them out of our D for most of the first half. Kington scored early in the second half, but Ludlow replied with a well worked goal, skilfully set up by Emma and put away by Shaunagh. Kington were frustrated by fantastic saves from goalkeeper Tanya and solid defence from Tracy, Davina and Laura. We also continued to push up into their half, with some lovely play by Emily and Gina out to the wings. A well fought game and great result.

Sun 22nd Oct Ludlow v Bishop's Castle 5-0
Our Sunday ladies team played away at Welshpool. Ludlow made an impact right from the start, with some confident play, accurate passing and consistent pressure. Exceptional skills demonstrated by Verity, Georgie and Aerin up front, secured 2 goals before half time. Georgie scored first, with a strong accurate shot into the corner of the goal. Then tenacious play led to an own goal.
During the second half, Ludlow kept the pressure on throughout. Lovely skills from Ella, Tracy and Clodagh kept Bishop's Castle out of our D effectively. The occasional attack on our goal was skillfully dealt with by Tanya. Great distribution from Evie, Leahana and Helen in the middle, was picked up beautifully by Pip and Ruth and lead to 3 further goals (Verity 2, Evie 1). A real team effort and well deserved win.
