Today we faced Wallsend a contest that was unknown territory for Hull United. Hull United started the game promisingly, with lots of good movement and stringing together good passages of play.

United started with Cone between the sticks, debutant Lucy playing right back and Millie, Eleanor and wardy making up the back for.

United started off strongly with some great football being played across the entire pitch. Hull found themselves 1-0 ahead from a great Lauren Tate goal, from deep free kick. Lauren managed to free herself from the defenders and tap home the opener. United continued to push the Wallsend Defence back and capitalised on a mistake from their defence at the back. Lois intercepted the ball and slotted the ball passed the on rushing keeper. Hull continued to defend well, a mistake from Hull allowed Wallsend to intercept and this resulted in Wallsend gaining a penalty. Wallsend player stepped up to take it, but unfortunately put the ball wide of the right hand post.

Minutes before half time, Lauren Holmes picked the ball up on the edge of the area unleashed a canon, this trouble the Wallsend keeper and made it 3-0 to United. United went in 3-0 up and the happier of the two teams.

The two teams came out with United making one change with Newlove coming on for Kim Ward. United continued the game as they started, some periods they looked nervous but continued to defend well. Wallsend gain a corner and they managed to capitalise on this. United continued to apply the pressure and Lois bagged her second of the game. Within the remaining moments of the game, Tate was put through one on one with the keeper and gained her second of the game.

A well contested game between both games. We face Wallsend again next week which sees the ladies travel to Wallsend where we hope to take three points and finish the season positively.
