Ladies 1s draw in only match played
CREWE VAGRANTS LADIES’ 2s 2
TRITON LADIES’ 1s 2
(Cheshire Women’s Hockey League Division One)
Only one match was played at the weekend, nine other Triton Hockey Club games were cancelled. The ladies’ 1s’ match was the only Triton game to survive the freezing conditions as the team braved the elements. In fact, it was the only game to survive in the Cheshire Women’s League Division One.
Crewe’s pitch was in great condition and from the start, Triton came out battling hard, desperately wanting to win this fixture between the two teams at the foot of the table.
Player of the match Michelle Price put away two great goals for Triton, but unfortunately a controversial decision led to Crewe scoring their second goal. This meant the points were shared, a result that didn’t suit either team in their efforts to pull away from the foot of the table.
Bad weather postponements
All of the other six senior and two junior games on Saturday fell foul to the weather with pitches being unplayable due to the frost and snow. The four Men’s teams will replay their games on Saturday, 30th March, while an announcement is awaited for the two ladies’ games.
Similarly, the England Hockey Board cup games on Sunday for the Men’s 1s and 2s together with the Girls’ U16s were also cancelled. The dates for the rescheduled games are yet to be decided.
