Bridgwater College Hockey: Ladies fall to Truro defeat
9:00am Friday 20th December 2013 in Sport
Bridgwater College Ladies Hockey Academy 3, Truro College 5
This BCS league fixture saw visitors Truro get off to a strong start with several shots in the first 5 minutes but Bridgwater's GK Ellie Bowden saved everything that came at her.
Truro were awarded a penalty corner and scored from a Bridgwater deflection.
Bridgwater's equaliser showed direct hockey at its best.
Janey Ferguson stepped up to make a good tackle in her own half and sent the ball forward to Jade Barry who ran the ball into the D and finished with a strike from top D.
Truro came back scoring another three in quick succession.
Then Barry got her second - a brilliant solo run beating several opponents to close the half at 2-4.
Against the run of play Truro got a fifth.
Not deterred Bridgwater continued to press forward with runs from Millie Burridge and Ellie Massey. The pressure paid off when Bridgwater took a quick free hit and Barry shot from top D giving her a hat trick and Bridgwater a well deserved third goal.
