Briston Ladies beat Norwich Dragons III 4-0 - a good start to the hockey season.

In the first league game of the new season, Briston had several key players missing and had to rely on injured players, retired players and non players to fill the gaps to make a team.

These players combined with the usual team and all played their socks off to gain a memorable win. This was all helped by the fantastic goalkeeping skills of Kim Love, who stood in for usual keeper Tasmin Radley, who was unavailable for this game.

All of Briston's goals were well worked, good goals which were scored after some excellent build-up play. The first for Briston came from Katie Barnard, who was in the right place to position the ball into the goal following a shot by Gail Rudd.

The other goals were an unstoppable short-corner shot from Gail Rudd, following an excellent delivery from Ellie Rivett, and Becky Amies also found the goal following some more fluent Briston play.

The second half saw Gail Rudd claim her second goal of the match after a good cross from Katie Barnard. Norwich Dragons came back stronger in the second half, which saw Briston's defence come into the game more, but the back line of Rachel Mayes, Michaela Bone and Susie Towning kept Dragons from scoring and when they did get through on goal, Kim Love was there to make sure she kept a clean sheet with some acrobatic saves and clearances.

All in all, Briston were pleased with their first week and hope to continue the good run at Sprowston on Saturday, with hopefully some of their players back into the squad.
