editorial image

Lowick made their second trip to Redcar in the space of seven days and returned with a good win to their credit.

They started this game brightly and were rarely troubled by the home side.

Straight from kick off Lowick was in control, with Michelle Stewart and Jenny Patterson both going close in the first five minutes.

It was these two who combined for Lowick’s first goal, Stewart broke down the wing, crossed the ball into the box where the Redcar keeper spilled the ball for Patterson to tap in.

Lowick failed to take any more of their chances in the first half with Jenna Waddell, Kirstie Tang and Stewart all going close.

Lowick lost their captain Patterson in the 42nd minute with a bad ankle injury.

They had to reshuffle in the second half but still dominated the game. They continued to pepper the Redcar goal but the keeper was on form.

A great save from Jenna Kerr was saved, the ricochet fell to Stewart but she hit it just wide.

Stewart again broke free and dragged the ball back for Tang to hit a shot that flew into the top right hand corner to make it 0-2.

Straight away Lowick were awarded a free kick out on the right wing. Mel Darling placed the ball and whipped in a superb ball that left the keeper no chance to make it 0-3.

Lowick weren’t finished there and the ever dangerous Stewart, who had netted four success hat-tricks for the team, got her deserved goal when a flick by Waddell found her in a position where she was able to slot it past a helpless keeper.

Best for Lowick were Darling and Waddell. Player of the match went to Stewart.

Lowick have now won four out of five (12 points)and are placed third in the Ladies Northern League behind Gateshead (18) and Blyth Town (15).

Lowick’s next game is at home to Birtley Town on Sunday, October 19 with a 2pm kick off.
