U13's @ Millfield Prep Tournament
It is two very different tales to tell.
The A team arrived to play 'giants' in their tournament. The opposition teams all felt at least a foot taller than us, and that meant playing around them was going to be tough. The girls tried hard in every match put tall opposition meant long arms that intercepted are passes. Our defence of Hattie, Arabella, Kate and Francis must be commended as they were busy for 80% of the time, and they defended with skill but we just fell short (excuse the pun!) when the ball was moving into our attack. We scored a couple of goals, and they learnt a lot.
The B team had a very good day at the office. They won two of their three games in the group stages, advanced to the semi finals, just lost out and had a terrific 3rd/4th playoff game against Redmaids. Redmaids took an early lead but by the end of the game the girls fought back and only lost by two goals. Our Spanish girls, Mercedes and Leyre, played superbly, Minty and Apolline shot well and the centre court play of Bella, Molly and Aggie connected our solid defence of Daisy and Georgia. Well done the B's.
