U10s v The Downs Malvern
This was a much more evenly fought match with the girls gaining the majority of the possession. When they did lose the ball they managed to work back and effectively re-gain it. After a couple of attacking short corners Macy managed to score a goal! In the second half we played a wider game but forgot about the need to jump back and defend. This left us vulnerable at times. Monica made some amazing saves throughout the game and The Downs equalised when one of the saves ricocheted back into the goal. This was a much more positive game but we do need to continue working on our positional play.
This was an exciting match right from the first whistle. The girls were energetic, engaged and really looked like they wanted to win! As time went on they gained in confidence and there was some lovely hockey being played. It was fantastic to see the girls trying some different skills- we had roll outs, Indian dribbling and some shots at goal! We had the majority of the possession for much of the match and made good headway into their D. Violet scored a fantastic goal to put us on the path to victory and we managed to hold onto this lead. Well played girls!
