Cannock L1s 1 - 1 North Notts 

Cannock ladies 1s had a tough week away to North Notts. Cannock failed to turn up in the first half and struggled to trouble North Notts who were ready to take 3 points from the visitors. It looked like their rowdy supporters would have something to celebrate when North Notts converted their first short corner in the first half of the game.
   Cannock got a reality check at half time and kicked into a different gear - dominating the half and having multiple opportunities before converting a short corner through Jodie Beddow’s
   Despite Cannock’s best efforts to spoil North Notts celebrations the game finished one a piece with Cannock disappointed by their poor first half performance.

Cannock L2s 1 - 1 Boots

   Cannock ladies 2’s faced 3rd in the league Boots at home. This was going to be a tough fixture as cannock have struggled to capitalise on D penetrations for the past few weeks. Cannock started strong piling pressure on a nervous Boots defence, causing many mistakes. The cannock attacks kept coming but a goal never came.
   At half time the score was unchanged at 0-0. The second half saw cannock step up the pressure and he deadlock was broken when Lou Humphrey slotted home a cross from the left. Boots piled on the pressure in midfield with lots of running off the ball and counter attacks. After a period of pressure on cannocks defence a boots shot was deflected by a defender into the cannock goal levelling up the score to 1-1. 
   The game remained very even until he full time whistle marked a great point for cannock ladies 2’s.


Cannock L3s 1 - 1 WATs L1s

   Cannock ladies 3s travelled to WATS 1s for a 2pm pushback at Aldersley Stadium. Cannock came straight out of the gates with good intensity that put WATS on the back foot. Cannock had lots of pressure in the first half and some good shots on goal that were saved by an agile WATS keeper. Score was 0-0 at half time.

   Second half showed a more determined WATS team who tested the Cannock defence with several breakaway runs. Unfortunately Cannock conceded a short corner with 10 mins left of play which WATS converted. However Cannock were determined to knock the table leaders off the top spot and so a resilient team effort led to Lucy black being in the D showing her excellent ball handling skills and patience to put one around the keeper to take the score to 1-1 just as the full time whistle went. A great team effort and well deserved point which felt like a win.

Cannock L5s 0 - 2 Stones 3s 

   Cannock ladies 5s welcome stone 3s to the Park. Stone came out strong and score two goals in the first half. Second half Cannock found their feet and showed Stone what Cannock Hockey is all about. Cannock defence kept Stone at bay seeing a goal line clearance from Ella Venables. Cannock missed out on ample opportunity to find the back of the net ending the game 2-0 to Stone.

Cannock M1s 0 - 2 Lichfield M1s 

   This was always going to be a fiercely competitive game, as local derbies usually are, and it did not disappoint. Both squads combined experience and skill with emerging youth, which resulted in a titanic battle in midfield for possession. However, it proved to be a game of missed chances and brilliant goalkeeping at both ends.
   Lichfield broke the deadlock midway through the first half following a well worked corner and subsequently increased their lead shortly afterwards. Cannock had a couple of shots go agonisingly wide from Gooderham, Nightingale and Swinnerton – Ions, with a couple more superbly saved by the Lichfield ‘keeper.
   In the Cannock goal, Adams pulled off some dramatic saves to keep the score to 2-0 at half time.  In the second half, both sides again had chances denied by the ’keepers, but it was Lichfield who finally found the net to increase their lead. A late surge by Cannock resulted in a goal line clearance to cruelly deny them yet again.
   The game was played in a positive spirit that reflected the respect held between both clubs.
