Burnham Ladies 1st XI 7
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.

Winscombe started the second half with renewed determination and won a penalty corner, but were unable to convert their chance. Oceanne Shears also had a good opportunity but could not score.
Christina Ford and Haniya Jarman made their debuts in the team, both showing good determination and promise. However, the final score was 1-7 as Burnham proved to be the more mature team.
