Mills writes EHL history with EG winner

Biba Mills’ late goal earned East Grinstead a first ever EHL Women’s win while also writing her name into the history books as the youngest ever goalscorer in the competition.

The 15-year-old guided in Lily Walker’s bouncing ball at the right post with nine minutes left to earn a 2-1 win over Gantoise in their RANKING MATCH, boosting England’s chances of getting a second place next season.

The win was also down to huge performances from 18-year goalkeeper Isabel Field and Laura Roper in midfield. Field brilliantly tipped an Alix Gerniers shot onto the post before Walker calmly put the English club in front from a corner second phase.

Field then saved an Ambre Ballenghien stroke before half-time but did get Gantoise back level in the third quarter with a low penalty corner.

They had further corner chances but EG were the ones to capitalise from their set piece, again on the second phase, with Walker picking the ball up on the left and Mills did the rest.
