Hockey: Revenge is sweet for Tunbridge Wells as Wilson scores twice

Hockey: Tunbridge Wells Ladies aiming for the top
TUNBRIDGE WELLS Ladies were keen to make amends at Hawkenbury after being narrowly beaten by Upminster in East League Division One South earlier in the season.

The home side had an excellent first half and scored early on. Fast passing and movement between Ollie Gerrett and Becky Bradbury led to a smart finish by Annie Wilson.

Wilson scored again after another well-worked move soon after, arriving on the end of a cross from Ana Glubb after good play down the right.

But too much individual play saw Upminster fight back to 2-1 and Wells suddenly had a lot of work to do at the back.

But excellent work from the defence and player of the match Georgia Whitaker in midfield and a few well-worked breaks on goal changed the momentum again.

Perdi Knight beat the keeper with an excellent shot after Nelia Bekker fed her a pass during a quick counter-attack.

Upminster managed to score another goal towards the end but Wells kept their concentration to close out the win.
