Hockey: Seeley runs show but Tunbridge Wells Ladies denied at end

2nd November 2018

Bishop’s Stortford 3 Tunbridge Wells Ladies 3

TUNBRIDGE WELLS Ladies were denied victory by a late equaliser and had to settle for a draw despite taking a two-goal lead in East Region Division One South.

The visitors got off to a strong start and broke the deadlock with Poppy Seeley’s fine strike from a well-worked short corner routine.

Wells extended their lead when a clinical pass from Annie Wilson found Harriet Alexander at the far post to finish clinically.

The hosts became more dominant on the ball as the half wore on, however, and pulled a goal back ten minutes before the break.

Bishop’s Stortford came out fighting in the second half and managed to notch another goal to level the scores.

Player of the match Seeley then capped a fine all-round performance with a deserved goal after a fine lay-off from Wilson.

So it came as a disappointment to the Ladies when the home side snatched a point at the end from a well worked move.

They will hope to carry their form into the next game against East London at Kent College, Pembury on Saturday [November 3, 1pm start].
