Keeper is more than Abel

HARRIERS came up against a very good Thetford II hockey side and lost 4-0.

Thetford took the lead early on through an unstoppable lifted shot blasted over the keeper into the top corner.

HARRIERS came up against a very good Thetford II hockey side and lost 4-0.

Thetford took the lead early on through an unstoppable lifted shot blasted over the keeper into the top corner.

The forward three of Jodie, TJ Allison and Maxine caught Thetford on the break a few times but were unable to equalise.

The Harriers' defence was under a lot of pressure for most of the first half.

Goalie Kim Abel made some first-class saves but was unlucky to concede another excellently-taken goal.

The second half was a tight affair for the first 20 minutes. Harriers went on the attack several times with great inter-play from Marie Philpott creating great chances for the forwards but the Thetford defence were too strong. They caught Harriers on the break, scoring twice.

Abel was in sensational form to keep the score down, making at least 10 sublime saves in the second half alone and deserved her PoM award from both teams.

Harriers are looking for new players. If you are interested in joining a small, friendly club call TJ on 07878816556.
