Wellingborough Ladies, proudly sponsored by Prop-Search, came away empty handed from their trip to Oundle today conceding a cruel last minute goal to go down 4-3.

Boro' started strongly and played their best hockey of the season, scoring an early goal after a nice move down the right involving Kelly Rust and Megan Sanders was finished expertly by Charlotte Redden. Redden scored her second goal after good midfield play from Jo Chapman was supported brilliantly by player of the match defender Lizzie Mead. Oundle got a goal back before half time but Boro's defenders Pauline Woodthorpe, Ella Valentino, Karen Patmore and GK Sheila Nunn played superbly to keep Oundle at bay.  Score at halftime: 2-1 to Boro.

In the second half Boro continued their great attacking play with a third goal to put them 3-1 up. A swift attack was finished nicely by striker Emily Plant. At this point Boro were controlling the match, but Oundle came back with a goal and a penalty flick to bring the match back to level pegging. Despite their best efforts Boro were cruelly robbed of a point by a controversial late goal from Oundle, leaving Boro with nothing to show for their hard work.  Despite this, Boro remained optimistic after the game: Oundle's excellent teas provided some consolation to what could have been a confidence knocker for the ladies.

Wellingborough squad: Jane Valentino, Sheila Nunn, Ella Valentino, Lizzie Mead, Jo Chapman, Pauline Woodthorpe, Emily Plant, Megan Sanders, Kelly Rust, Charlotte Redden and Karen Patmore.
