Following on from the 2nd team victory Nomads 1st's also played Jersey Ladies helped by a few 2nd team players with some 1st team regulars unavailable.
The game started with some early pressure for Jersey Ladies, as the new Nomads centre midfield partnership took some time to gel but Nomads continued to look dangerous on the break through the pace of Joni Gorman and Abbie Le Marquand. One such break eventually lead to a 3rd goal of the season for Joni scoring from a rebound.
Despite some chances spirited Nomads defence kept it to 1-0 at the break.
With a difficulty finding the same pace on the ball at Claremont and both teams playing in congested areas the match became increasingly scrappy at the beginning of the 2nd half with Jersey Ladies generally controlling the territory.
Despite a number of chances they could not quite find a goal and as both teams tired Nomads started to find some extra space and increase the pressure on the Jersey Ladies defence. With less than 10 minutes remaining a short corner was well converted by Steph Edge and despite a consolation goal from a penalty corner with less than 2 minutes remaining Nomads held on for the victory.
