Phoenix ladies drop points in race for promotion

First published in Sport

Phoenix Hockey Club ladies’ firsts dropped points in their quest for promotion in Essex Women's League division one.

They are now six points behind leaders Southend and Benfleet after a 1-1 draw at Old Loughtonians fourths.

However, the ladies’ seconds continued their push for promotion with a solid win against Oakway in division three.

There was no early goal, but patience was rewarded on 20 minutes when a solid strike from Kim Smith opened the account.

The pressure continued and Karina Tarling pounced on an errant clearance to bring the score to 2-0 at half-time and Rebecca Maybanks executed a clean strike from the edge of the D to cement a 3-0 victory.
