Sudbury Ladies 2

Broxbourne Ladies 4

A brace from Chloe Hunnable was not enough to prevent Sudbury Ladies from slipping to a 4-2 defeat at home to third-placed Broxbourne on Saturday.

Despite Sudbury starting positively, the disappointment of a disallowed goal for the home team opened up the pitch for Broxbourne to counter-attack, winning a short corner which was converted into a goal.

The visitors then began to stamp their authority on the proceedings, with two more goals in quick succession.

Sudbury had to work hard to get a grip on the game and their efforts were rewarded when Hunnable smashed home with a superb reverse stick shot.

The comeback was short lived, however, as Broxbourne delivered the killer blow of a fourth goal.

But Sudbury came back with Hunnable grabbing her second goal of the game from a short corner.

The hosts continued to fight until the final whistle, but once again they had left themselves too much to do in the second half.

Sudbury started strongly and were quickly rewarded with a short corner, followed by a strong 15-20 minutes when they pressed high into North Norfolk’s half.

Towards the end of the first half, Sudbury unfortunately gave away a short corner, one of many, and Norfolk scored what proved to be the winning goal.

Despite the visitors going 4-0 ahead, Peter Thorogood stood up well to a seasoned and experienced opposition attack during his second match in goal.

But some periods of good play in the half saw Sudbury pull two goals back, through Simon Hardingham a smashing strike from Will Bevan.

The second half was very even and Sudbury had a few chances, yet couldn’t quite execute them, leaving the team in the bottom half of the table.
