Thame ladies cruise to Christmas victory

Thame ladies’ first team ensured they enter the winter break on a high with a 3-0 home win over Aylesbury.

The victory means Thame have won all 12 of their games so far this season and sit nine points clear at the top of the table, with a goal difference of plus 110.

The home side had been hoping for a competitive game against their local rivals and were not disappointed as Aylesbury fielded a very strong defensive team that set up behind the ball and remained solid.

Such a negative emphasis was not enough though as within the first 10 minutes swift passing in midfield between Jenny Alexander, Rosie Corby and Vikki Dawson created gaps that Lizzie Greenwood-Hughes was more than happy to exploit with a great goal.

Thame settled into their rhythm and started to play really well played really well with Mia Brunner unlucky on a few occasions as her powerful strikes seemed unable to find the target.

Sarah Sawrey-Cookson kept a cool head in what became a very physical game and to beat three defenders to claim Thame’s second goal of the half.

After the break Vikki Dawson showed her stick skills and strength to bring the final score to 3–0.

Thame are now not in action until January 14 when they face Amersham and Chalfont. They will be hoping to continue their success into the new year.

Thame Hockey Club train at Thame Leisure Centre on Wednesdays from 8.45pm.
