U13C hockey v Bromsgrove
What a fantastic first game of the term! The sun was shining and Abberley C team were raring to go. I was really impressed with the girls’ movement off of the ball today; they were creating space, using the width of the pitch and supporting one another. We had a lot of possession in the first half and were 1-0 up for the majority after a great goal from Harriet. Unfortunately, Bromsgrove scored right on half time but after a quick water break the girls were keen to get going again. We wanted to stick to our plan from the first half; simple, strong hockey.
The second half started brilliantly; Poppy scored one of the best goals I have seen in a long time! She was poised on the back post to flick the ball in from a deflection off the keeper. Olivia followed it up a couple of minutes later with a fantastic strike. Bromsgrove managed to get another goal but Abberley held on for a well deserved win. A fantastic game!
