Venue > University of Bath Sports Training Village
Team Bath Ladies took three well-earned points from the visit of Lydney on Saturday.
A high tempo start yielded a series of early penalty corners and a well-worked switch enabled Lizzie Cox to sweep the ball home to give Team Bath the advantage.
The home side continued to dominate with Hattie Lloyd and Pippa Barnes dominating possession only resolute defending from Lydney prevented Team Bath from extending their lead before half-time.
The second half followed a similar pattern with Team Bath winning a series of penalty corners without adding to their lead and an energetic press ensured that Lydney’s attacks were limited to long balls that were easily dealt with by Nicky Wilson and Rachel Clarke.
Eventually, the Team Bath pressure told, with a neat pass putting Vicky Sage in behind the defence and her neat cut-back was well taken by Susie Barnes to secure the result as 2-0.
