Hockey: Promotion-chasing Doncaster ladies extend unbeaten run
A three-goal blitzÂ in five minutes earned Doncaster ladies a 3-1 win over Didsbury Northern and extended their unbeaten run to seven games.
Quickfire goals fromÂ Camryn Dias,Â Charlotte Dodds and Bexx Woods wrapped up a sixth league win of the season for the Town Field girls.
They currentlyÂ sit third in the Northern Premier Division as they continue their bid to return to the National League.Â
Doncaster made the better start but itÂ wasn't until the 21st minute when Ellie O'Neill intercepted a poor pass out of the Didsbury defence that the game changed.
She found Dias in the D who turned away from two defenders to fire an excellent reverse shot across the goalkeeper.
Doncaster won the ball back straight from the re-startÂ and excellent link-up play by O'Neill and Dias foundÂ Dodds who scored at the second attempt.
Moments later it was 3-0 from a short corner when Woods was on hand to lift the ball over the goalkeeper afterÂ captain Hannah Rockliff's shot was saved.
Didsbury reduced the deficit just before the break but Doncaster defended resolutely to see the game out.
They host Kirkby Stephen on Saturday (noon).
n Doncaster's men went into their winter break on the back of a 6-2 win at Alderley Edge.
Alex Kerly scored twice early onÂ and Matt Gibson netted either side of the break.
The hosts responded but goals fromÂ Matty White and Josh Pettinger sealed the three points for the visitors.
