Lancaster 1sts  1  Wakefield 2nds 0

As with the first team, Wakefield 2nds lost their unbeaten record but remain top of North Division 1 as second placed Whitley Bay, also lost. Wakefield had the better of the play in the first half, putting the home side under pressure. Against the run of play Lancaster won a penalty corner which was saved on the post by Claire Berry. Wakefield counter attacked down the left but Julia Butterworth’s shot was well saved by the keeper. Lancaster stunned the visitors mid way through the second half when careless defensive work allowed them only their second shot on goal, which beat the Wakefield keeper. Wakefield worked hard to find an equaliser with Gabby House having a shot saved. In the dying minutes Tilly Morgan’s shot went agonisingly wide. Wakefield host Lymm at 3,00 pm on Saturday.
