U9A festival at King's Hawford
Under 9 King's St Albans Hockey festival
This was our first away fixture of the term. Initially it felt as if the team were overawed by the experience. However as the afternoon progressed the team began to show some of the flair and pace that they are capable of.
In our first match, Kings Hawford were very strong; they scored 4 goals to 0. However our defending and work rate was excellent. Alice as GK made some super saves. We had some chances to score goals but struggled to take the ball round the opposition.
Our second match was against Winterfold, the team we drew against last week. This week however, Winterfold scored 2 goals and grew in confidence, which made it hard for us to get back and equalize, despite our best efforts.
The final match against King's St Albans was end to end play with Abberley scoring the first goal. King's later equalized and the match ended 1-1.
Shattered but happy, the team tucked into their picnic match tea before heading back to school.
