Sevenoaks travelled up to Cambridge for a late pushback last weekend, knowing it could be a tricky away game as Cambridge had clinched goals off of other teams in the league.
The first quarter saw plenty of opportunities for Sevenoaks in attack, however the Cambridge keeper was quick out and they struggled to convert their chances – play was back and forth, with a high turnover rate.
0-0 at halftime meant Sevenoaks had to be patient, however the patience paid off in the third quarter when a cutting infield run by player of the match Hannah Bond set up Emily Barrett to slot a perfect reverse shot past the keeper’s left glove into the net to make it 1-0.
Keeping cool, with many more narrow chances including hitting the post, Sevenoaks’ second goal came from advantage play in the D and Kate McCaw finished it off to make the final score 2-0.
A final quarter penalty corner for Cambridge was awarded, but a big left foot clearance from goalkeeper Meg James denied Cambridge any inch of hope.
Sevenoaks were pleased with the result and also the consistency and composure shown by all players, considering the nature of the game.
Sevenoaks host Slough at Holly Bush Lane this Saturday with a 5pm pushback.
