Rowley fires Kitchen home

COUNTRY Kitchen turned in a solid performance to beat EOP 27-19 in the Darlington Winter League.

In the first half, Country Kitchen took the first centre pass and got off to an excellent start by scoring from it.

Kitchen then intercepted EOP's centre pass and good play from Kate Mighall and Shellie Rowley in the shooting circle began to reap rewards with early goals.

With the half-time score putting Kitchen 11-7 ahead, the Northallerton side continued their good work in the second half.

Country Kitchen started off brightly and shooting in the circle by Kate Mighall and Shellie Rowley continued to be excellent, while some good defending from Hilary Conway, Karen Ellam and Becky Hardy kept EOP largely at bay.

By the final whistle Country Kitchen had racked up their 27-19 victory, and EOP awarded Player of the Match to Shellie Rowley for her afternoon of accurate shooting.

Country Kitchen Team: Wendy Patterson (Coach), Sammy Coulson (Asst Coach), Becky Hardy (GK), Hilary Conway (GD), Karen Ellam (WD), Polly Enevoldson (C), Amy Pattison (WA), Kate Mighall (GA), Shellie Rowley (GS).
