Lancaster 3s staved off relegation from the Lancashire Central Women’s Hockey Association Division One with a 2-0 victory at Witton Warriors 1s in the final game of the season on Saturday.

The hosts started well but found goalkeeper Sian Moreland in fine form pulling off a string of saves to keep the scores level.

With the game goalless at the break Lancaster were much improved in the second half, Lauren Case giving them the lead.

Shannon Davey then doubled the advantage as a hard-fought victory ensured safety for the city side.
