Knole Park Women’s 2nd Team were back in action at the weekend as their stop start season restarted! On Saturday they welcomed the University of Kent 1st team to Radnor House School.
The game started very evenly, however the silky skills of Mackenzie broke the deadlock as she glided through the defensive line, past the goalkeeper to make it 1-0. From there the goals continued to come as Sarah finished off a lovely team goal to make it 2-0. Mackenzie scored three more in the first half to take her personal tally to four, Sarah added a superb backhand strike and sisters Amy and Georgie both scored one each. Alex scored a first half hat-trick too to make it 11-0 at the break.
In the second half the University of Kent came out fighting and managed to score two quick goals. However, the come back never quite materialised as Alex added two more, including a delightful backhand lob wedge, Mackenzie and Amy added one more each and Ruth netted a wonderful sweeping Knole Park attack! A late goal from the university side was just what they deserved for a very competitive second half, however it finished 16-3 to Knole Park. This win keeps Knole Park top of Invicta Division 6.
The Women’s 1st team match against Gore Court 2s was conceded and their push for promotion continues as they sit in second place in Invicta Division 2. Next week they face a keen and highly skilled Tunbridge Wells 2s side who are in third on goal difference - it should be a fantastic match!
The Men’s 1s match was postponed and they welcome Sevenoaks HC to Radnor House on Saturday.
