On the stroke of halftime Dragons won a penalty corner which found its way to Hannah Hardy who drove the ball past the keeper for a 3-0 halftime lead.
Just 8 minutes into the second half, Beal was on the scoresheet again with her third and Dragons’ fourth. Another great ball from Shreeve found Beal, who scrambled the ball home. Beal scored her fourth from a pin-point angled cross by Hardy.
Dragons had several further opportunities to increase the victory, however just one further goal was scored, a second for Hardy.
The home sides’ defence of Ally Windsor-Waite, Angela Murgatroyd, Louise Davis and Lucy King in goal had a few penalty corners to deal with and one or two breaks, which they coped with well, allowing the usual defenders Donna Vaughan and Lizzie Moulton to move further up the pitch to join captain Gail Thomas and Karen O’Neill-Simpson in midfield. Injury to forward Sue Cross brought a premature end to her match in the first half.
