Match Report
Marlborough College 1st X vs  The St Mary's Calne Cup
On: Saturday, 15 Jan 2022
Venue: Away

The 1sts enjoyed a momentous and record breaking afternoon of Lacrosse. The SMC Cup consisted of a 4-way round robin, including Sherborne, Cheltenham Ladies and hosts St Marys Calne. Sherborne were dispatched calmly, and although we weren't our most fluent in attack, we were controlled and disciplined with some great defence. We raised our game again for CLC, dominating and scoring some better goals. The team saved their best for last against Calne, hungry for the win and showing much greater belief in themselves and each other. And what a match it was! End to end and highly intense, Calne scored first after our first few attempts were saved but we were clearly in the game. In defence we were tenacious and forced their errors and had them rattled. Calm and more controlled in attack despite the pressure, our equaliser came from a great feed from Kitty and a brilliant quick stick finish from Molly Doherty. This only made us more determined and we raised our game another notch. Ruby Adams scored the second with a great drive from the top before Calne snatched an equaliser despite numerous outstanding saves from Maria Pia and solid defence form the team. Time was running out and the tension was palpable and with 15 seconds on the clock, a Calne foul gave us the ball on our goal line extended. With a quick pass to Liv Spearpoint who drove in from the top, she slotted it in the back of the net for the winner!
