Kettering ladies 4ths travelled north to face Oundle 2nds on a bright autumn morning.
From the off Oundle started attacking strongly and the Kettering defence were under constant pressure. We rallied and managed to put in a few attacking runs but eventually Oundle were able to break through the Kettering defence, giving them a two goal lead by half time.
Following the break Kettering came out in much better shape and began to fight back. Some great attacking moves were put together and were rewarded with Ola Bednarczyk firing home a great goal from the edge of the circle. At that point, with the score 2-1, the tide of play appeared to be changing and Kettering felt they were back in the match with a chance. However, Oundle resumed their onslaught and in the last 10 minutes Kettering, perhaps with some legs tiring, seemed to lose their focus and let in two more goals.
This was a closely fought game with both teams pulling out all the stops, but Kettering were unable to take their chances and gave Oundle too many opportunities, resulting in a disappointing 4-1 loss.
