Kendal travelled away to York and in the sunshine they started well. However, it was York who were first to open the scoring in the twentieth minute through open play, as they slotted it past the Kendal keeper. Only eight minutes later, Celia Powell positioned herself to intercept a York hit out and she wasted no time in drilling it past the keeper in a 1 on 1 with the keeper, the backboard rattled and the visitors cheered. Both teams worked hard throughout the first half when attacking and in defence, including Kendal players scrambling over their own keeper to ensure they didn’t let the visitors go ahead again.

Player of the match and Mighty Green goal keeper Ruth Sealey did her fair share of scrambling around in the first half to ensure she kept the ball out of her net, and in the second half, flawless defending from Molly Wilson meant that York rarely entered the D with any promising styles of attack despite them trying to push on. Unfortunately despite their hard work and tireless efforts across the pitch, the visitors were also unable to get ahead and the game finished a 1-1 draw. Back to the fortress this Saturday as the ladies take on Bowdon seconds.
