U11A v Kings Hawford (H)
The game started quickly with Kings Hawford pressuring our defence, and gaining an early goal. This was quickly followed up by another good goal by their left wing on the post. With Abberley being 2-0 down we had to rally to bring the game back. We did so in good form, the Hawford goal keeper caused us a lot of problems, but after a short while Emma managed to score on the post. This was then quickly followed up with Bella hitting the ball hard to level the score. Isabella and Emma worked hard on the wings to track back and mark their players as well as getting up to create goals. Sylvie was outstanding in midfield and created a lot of interceptions and distributed the ball well. Not long before half time we managed to gain another goal to give us a 2-3 advantage. In the second half the ball went end to end, and both teams fought hard and demonstrated some excellent hockey. No more goals were scored and after a tough match Abberley secured a narrow win 3-2.
