The game started with an even amount of possession from both sides, soon leading to Alnwick gaining a penalty flick through the opposition blocking advantage on goal. Shona stayed calm under pressure and took Alnwick into the lead with a great penalty flick in the bottom right of the goal. Play continued with to the opposition putting plenty of pressure on Alnwick who had to stay strong in defence to keep the lead. Another penalty flick was awarded to Alnwick, once again Shona approached with confidence and secured a second goal this time into the bottom left of the goal, causing the opposition goalie some confusion. Soon after Alnwick secured their third goal this time by Steph taking Alnwick into a confident lead at half time.
The second half saw no more goals, but even with some fatigue starting Alnwick managed to defend their goal well and keep their lead, still making plenty of attacking opportunities at the goal.
