Alisha Lewis bags a brace as Blossomfield beat Worcester

Solihull Editorial 9th Nov, 2016   0

HOCKEY: A BRACE by Alisha Lewis set Solihull Blossomfield Ladies on their way to a comfortable 3-0 victory away at Worcester Ladies.

It was an early start for Blossomfield as they made the trip south on the M5 to on Saturday and they were switched on right from the start.

The visitors created a number of chances with the first influential one being created by Denise Fountain in the centre of midfield and he slotted the ball through to Lewis and the in-form player bagged her first goal of the game.

The second Bloss goal came soon after through the midfield work of Lou Davis and Kate Digby, and again through to Lewis who buried the ball past the Worcester keeper.

The second half saw the home side dominate the play as the visitors struggled win possession but Worcester were unable to capitalise.

Bloss sealed the win with a third when play packed into the D and from the byline Denise Fountain got enough on the ball for it to cross over the line as the visitors maintained their unbeaten run in the league.

Elsewhere, goals from Cameron Mowat and James Shoreson earned Blossomfield Badgers a 2-2 draw Wolverhampton Badgers.

It proved to be a game of two halves as Blossomfield produced a poor first half display that saw them go two goals down at the break after conceding two poor goals.

The change in the performance in the second half had Wolverhampton under the cosh for great spells, and a well taken goal from Shoreson after a great run from Harry Mowat really put pressure on the hosts.

All the hard work and very good hockey seemed to not be enough, despite Bloss coming close with many chances, notably from Harry Mowat.

A last minute penalty corner was given and a desperate challenge by a Wolverhampton defender was seen to be bad enough that a penalty flick was awarded.

With the result in his hands Cameron Mowat stepped up, kept his cool and slotted the penalty away to level the score.
