Pelicans III 0, Beccles 8
FOUR goals from Annette Freeman, two from Laura Ashworth and one each from Max Gibbs and Lucy Paul, sealed this hockey match between two teams at opposite ends of the table.
This win keeps Beccles' chances of promotion alive with only two more league games to play. Beccles' experience was the key factor with this win, as Pelicans struggled to cope with players such as Ali Foreman, Jodie Smith and Annette Freeman running at pace at them.
Pelicans defended in numbers with the goals mainly coming from rebounds from the keeper or a defender. Five goals were scored in the first half. Pelicans nearly got on the score sheet, but Lorraine Greenwood in goal pulled off a superb save, deflecting the ball onto the goalpost and off the pitch. Pelicans still fought bravely throughout the second half and had opportunities where they came close to scoring. Pelicans were awarded a penalty flick during this half, however they were unable to convert, sending the ball straight at the keeper.
