Diss Ladies 0, Sprowston II 0

ON a windy afternoon Diss were hosts to a strong Sprowston hockey side.

With a number of regulars missing Diss had to make some changes from last week, including a change in goal.

Diss started strongly but found it hard break down a strong Sprowston defence. Tanya Chenery came closest after 25 minutes when she raced clear only to be thwarted by the Sprowston keeper.

Diss piled on the pressure but couldn't find a way through with the Sprowston defence having an exceptional game.

On the stroke of half-time Sprowston almost scored but where denied by a fantastic reflex save by stand-in keeper Charlotte Everett.

The second half started with Sprowston finding the net, but it was ruled out after the Sprowston player sportingly said it had hit her leg. For the rest of the half neither keeper was troubled.

Diss' midfield trio of Brown, Chartier and Howard started to control the game but couldn't find the decisive pass.

Just as the final whistle was about to be blown Olivia Cates was a whisker away from scoring the winner when she couldn't quite steer in a Lucy Kershaw cross.

Diss Ladies player of the match was Pam Keeley.
