Derby delight for Spalding Hockey Club ladies first team
Charlotte Maplethorpe’s hat-trick earned three points for Spalding ladies at Bourne Deeping.
She dribbled past the keeper and slotted in the early opener but the hosts soon got back on level terms.
Just before half-time, Maplethorpe scored again by chipping it over the keeper after getting onto a through-ball.
Bourne Deeping equalised again but Spalding showed some great play in the middle from Jess Ball and Evie Maltby plus strong defending at the back by Sally Pilgrim and Mia Dewing.
The winner came from an assist by Ellie Holland with a powerful pass to Maplethorpe who finished it off.
Spalding men’s first team lost 7-0 at Blueharts.
The visitors made a slow start and conceded two early goals.
They were 4-0 down at half-time and couldn’t get back into the game.
Ed White and Alex Canham were on target in Long Sutton’s 3-2 home defeat to Harleston Magpies 3rd.
Connie Gittins fired a treble as Sutton ladies won 3-0 at Cambridge Nomads.
