U11A v HCJS (H)
In our final match of the season on a very chilly afternoon we faced HCJS. The game started quickly, with the ball moving from end to end. Herefords goalkeeper was in fine form and made several excellent saves. Eventually we got a good rebound on the far post and put us ahead 1-0. Hereford quickly retaliated with an excellent goal from their right wing. We rallied and our defence were excellent with Emily and Frances making some very good tackles. We continued to pressure their goal keeper, although not quite as often as we should. Close to half time Minty put a second goal in on the left post for us to have the lead at half time.
The second half was end to end, with excellent skills and passes through to our attack, we had several powerful shots from Sylvie and Isabella, and eventually following pressure on another shot we scored a final goal to win our last match of the season 3-1. It has been an incredible season, with lots of highs and amazing development in skills; which will help when they rise to playing U13 hockey next year.
