On a blustery Wednesday afternoon Highfields welcomed Burton Hathow for the first fixture of the new year. Highfields started brightly and created several early openings before Meg coolly slotted home breaking the deadlock. However, Burton grew into the match and their pressure finally told as they poked in an equaliser from close range. This kicked Highfields into gear as Meg again capped a superb team move, nutmegging the last defender before powering past the goalkeeper. Half time, 2-1.
The second half was continued in similar vein with both keepers called into action, however it was Meg who had the final say, tucking in a rebound from Hector’s firmly hit shot, claiming her hat-trick.
Final score Highfields 3 – Burton 1.
