Hockey: Slick Canterbury too good for Hunt and Co

Inside the civic complex

A WELL-DRILLED Canterbury 2nd XI disposed of Tunbridge Wells Ladies 1st XI at Polo Farm Sports Club in their first East Women’s league match following the Christmas break.

Canterbury were a side on form having put together a string of victories before the New Year.

Yet it was Tunbridge Wells who looked the more dominant side during the opening stages of their return to action.

Bertie Organ and inners Jen Hunt and Ollie Gerrett worked tirelessly in midfield, breaking down play, keeping possession and linking well with the forwards. Meanwhile in the defence Amy Hare swiftly repelled the -opposition’s attempts to enter the area.

However, Canterbury capitalised on a counter–attack to score their first goal, and soon afterwards they found the back of the net again in a slick penalty corner routine.

Tunbridge Wells maintained their fighting spirit in the second half, with player of the match Hunt looking increasingly dangerous in attack.

Ele Cairns was also causing havoc for the opposition up the right wing. But the visitors were unable to test the Canterbury keeper.
