Winscombe’s 4th XI came up against Burnham first team, a physically stronger, more experienced team.

However, it was a positive Winscombe team who were prepared to battle every step of the way and who defended valiantly, absorbing pressure for the first 15 minutes before one of several attacking moves resulted in a surprise early lead for the home team.

Jo Sawtell, Lucy Knapman and Joely Dewy put in a number of important tackles in defence, to eventually win the ball. Lucy Kindred, Gail Izzard and Hannah Glossop helped work the ball into the Burnham D and eventually Becky Matthews managed to push the ball over the line for Winscombe to take the lead.

This seemed to fire Burnham on whose applied pressure led to the equaliser, when keeper Shas Bracknell was beaten. A second followed shortly afterwards, but Winscombe held the defence well after conceding two penalty corners.
