Chesterfield travelled to Loughborough for their final game of the season and came home league champions. Travelling away with a full squad plus subs the visitors were able to bring on fresh legs when it mattered. Chesterfield opened the scoring after 10 min. with a penalty kick and two minutes later they went further ahead when Kim Hyslop scored a try in the corner. Loughborough came straight back from the kick off and ran in a try to close the scores. Chesterfield refused to get rattled and from a concerted effort Laura Falconer the scrum half went over for the second try converted by Kim. Chesterfield were now having putting in try saving tackles but from a strange decision by the ref. Loughborough went over the line for their second try. The second half saw the Chesterfield Ladies playing uphill and into the rain. Pressure from the kick off saw Chesterfield awarded a penalty on the 5 metre line. A quick tap and Kim was over the line for her second try. Once again the home side struck back and kept themselves in the game with another try. The Chesterfield pack upt the pressure in the scrums and got their reward when Elle Unwin went over the line to score a try. Not to be outdone, the backs started to get into the game, and once again from a tap penalty a try was scored this time by Liz Taylor. In the final minutes of the game Chesterfield mounted an attack on the home side's line through the forwards and clinched the game when Paula Roe scored the final try. A sad end to the day when Michelle Lord had to leave the field with an injury to the head. Well done the Ladies for great season and a big thank you to Geff Cass the coach for all his hard work and commitment
