WILMSLOW Hockey Club's women were beaten 3-2 on City of York's first visit to Oakwood Farm.

York broke the deadlock in the North Division One encounter with a deft deflection in front of keeper Lang.

This spurred on the orangetops and they began to assert greater pressure.

After the award of a penalty corner Hannah Kelman, who had put in a great shift in defence, stepped up to slot home the equaliser.

York converted a strike from a penalty corner shortly before the break, which was harsh on the hosts' efforts.

After an extended period of possession York tucked away a scrappy goal which seemed to suck the life out of Wilmslow.

Amelia Poole was unlucky to see her shot rebound off the post

A well worked move involving Wortley, Cooper and Poole saw Rachubka finish coolly, her fourth goal in three games.

Player of the match Maddy Troup put in a tireless performance in the second half.

Wilmslow's men maintained their 100% record with a fine 5-2 win in Sheffield against Chapeltown, who opened the scoring but Joe Booth soon struck back with a reverse stick shot.

Further goals from a David Boddy deflection, Joe Booth from a penalty corner and two solo efforts from Pete Hallinan put the game to bed before a late consolation goal from the home team.
