Newcastle Uni beat Whitby earlier in the season so the squad knew they had to work hard to gain a positive result.

The game started well, the ladies team used space well and passed accurately.

Whitby gained several chances early in the game to score but their goals were saved by Newcastle’s keeper.

Strong link-up play on the left wing soon led to Danby’s second goal from Issy Hogarth who ran the ball with Chloe Wilson with pace to beat the Durham defence.

More strong play from Danby led Bronwyn Hodgson to chip the third goal past the keeper off the post.

With Alice Hogarth putting in some strong tackles in the middle and playing the ball high and wide it wasn’t long before Josie Bowes crossed a strong ball across the D for Wilson to knock home to make it 4-0.

In the second half Danby continued to play well but struggled to beat the Durham defence . With a short corner given against Danby and some defending on the line from Kathryn Hogarth Durham were awarded a penalty flick leaving the final score as 4-1.

Player of the match was Issy Hogarth.

Danby play Norton 2s away this Saturday.
