Match Report
Roedean School Girls-U16A vs  Ardingly College Girls-U18B
On: Saturday, 09 Sep 2023
Venue: at Home

In a highly-contested game, the U16 girls played in their first competitive match of the season, against a very physical and well-drilled Ardingly team. The opposition went ahead early, with a penalty stroke after a strong challenge from a Roedean player. The girls were fighting throughout the first half, and had the ball in the goal twice, but both were unfortunately disallowed.At half time, the girls were disappointed with the scoreline, but determined to push on a save the game. With our girls pushing forward, it left our defence open, with Alice and Evie having to make key tackles – if Ardingly got through, there was no stopping Fen in goal, who made a string of 1-1 tackles, which motivated the girls even more.Going into the last quarter, the message was all or nothing! The girls stepped high up the pitch, and Erin ended up in between the goal with the ball on the end of her stick, and she placed the ball into an empty net, to finish of the game 1-1!
