U11A Hockey v HCJS (H)
A very blustery day, but we started well with confident movement of the ball, and good use of the pitch. The first half showed excellent skills from both teams, Monica saved many goals, and Anastasia and Darcey were solid at the back. We did concede one goal, but we also came close to scoring ourselves on a couple of occasions. Kitty, Molly, Tilda, Grace, Olivia and Sophie worked well in attack and our wing players really did well on keeping the width which gave us space to play in. It was a very pleasing half and we had a fighting chance for pulling back the score.
In the second half we continued to be strong in defence, but Anastasia, Sophie and Darcey had more to deal with even though they were extremely tenacious. We didn’t manage to up our energy levels in attack however, and so HCJS made the most of this to increase their lead with some strong breaks and effective short corners. Real promise shown in the first half, it was a shame we couldn’t step up a gear in the second half.
