    TUNBRIDGE WELLS travelled to Sevenoaks on a snowy morning but the services of a tractor enabled the match to go ahead even with the constant flurries of snow.

    The East Region Division One South game started positively for Wells, with aggressive closing down of the ball from the forwards and insides. But a quick turnover from Sevenoaks allowed them to score an early goal.

    Wells were quick to recover when Ele Cairns overlapped and struck a fierce shot from the edge of the D which the goalkeeper parried only as far as Perdi Knight, player of the match, who smashed the ball into the backboard.

    Oaks grabbed two more goals to go into half-time 3-1 ahead. But in the second half Georgia Whitaker’s through ball enabled Annie Wilson to round the keeper and slot the ball from a tight angle.

    Despite the efforts of the tireless midfielders Bertie Organ and Ollie Garret with the defensive back up from Amy Hare and Pip Ross, it wasn’t enough to stop Sevenoaks scoring another four in quick succession as Wells’ concentration lapsed.
