Hockey: Glubb’s strike keeps Tunbridge Wells Ladies in third place 

Pam Mills

TUNBRIDGE WELLS Ladies came away from Bromley as the only team in East Region Division One South not to have lost against league leaders Brom & Becks this season.

After a 1-1 draw in the first half of the season there was plenty left over from that encounter to ensure another competitive game.

Wells had decided to apply pressure high up the pitch for the first 20 minutes and a fine passage of passing led to an early goal by Ana Glubb on the backhand.

This ignited a big push for Wells which resulted in a lot of pressure in front of goal but not enough cutting edge to score another.

Bromley & Beckenham picked up the intensity late in the half and forced the visitors on to the back foot, converting a well-executed penalty corner just before the interval.

The second half was entirely different to the first, with much of the play in the middle of the pitch. Both teams were pushing hard but neither had many real chances on goal.

The draw keeps the Ladies in third place in the table with three games remaining, the first of which is at home to Holcombe at Hawkenbury this Saturday (March 3, 1pm start).
