Chester Ladies 1s vs Newcastle University Ladies 1s
Chester 1 - Newcastle 3
Back on home turf at Abbeygate saw Chester Ladies 1s start the game dynamically, aggressively and deservedly taking the lead against 2nd of the league with a short corner strike from Nia Hughes.
The first 20 minutes Chester looked very strong but just couldn’t sustain their lead, Newcastle getting an equaliser but Chester fought to get their flowing play back! Half time 1-1.
Hoping to come back fighting unfortunately Newcastle scored first in the 2nd half and with the game disrupted with some debatable cards for both teams we had to keep the communication high to stay focussed and keep our heads. Keeper Becs Holland also made some cracking saves including a penalty flick.
Final score 3-1 loss
We are ready to come back fighting, 2 games remain to chase 7th place with a double header against Lymm #6pointfinish #bluearmy
