Wakefield began the game well, winning a penalty corner at the start of the game but failed to convert it. Although they dominated play they found it difficult to settle into a rhythm. As the game progressed, Wakefield began to find their form and more penalty corners followed. With Lancaster under the cosh Rachael dent caused several problems. After a good run down the left by Ash Madden, Dent latched onto her centre but hit the post. Moments later she was just wide with another shot before finally finding the net towards the end of the first half. Wakefield grew in confidence after a somewhat shaky start and began the second half at a high pace. Dent shot wide again as Wakefield pressed for a second goal. In the 14th minute, another attack lead to Harriet White doubling the score. With the game seemingly safe, Wakefield moved the ball around well and threatened to score again. An excellent run from defence by player of the match, Rachael Dent, brought a good shot from Vicki Green. Sadly, her shot went wide. Against the run of play, Lancaster won a penalty corner and scored leaving the home side facing a few nervous minutes before the final whistle blew. A great end to a very good season.
