Hockey U12D vs Handcross U13E – 5-3 LOSS

The U12D’s put in a determined performance against a strong and physical Handcross side. Their team really put the pressure on our girls; defensively they were stopping everything we were trying to get past them, making it difficult to get the ball in their D. However, we did manage to do a few big hits down the pitch and get it into the D, where Lily D was waiting to tap the ball in. They scored an early goal against us, in the first minute! But the girls didn’t let it get to them, showing great perseverance. Saskia and Lily in defence had a tough job against a strong attacking side but worked hard to clear the ball out the D. However, they were creating a wall around the ball, making it very difficult to get the ball into their half. Midfield – Amara, Anna, Olivia and Dixie were working super hard, trying to get round the defenders and find gaps, they did have a few chances and we did capitalise on these, scoring 3 goals in total. They played their hardest against a tough team, so well done to the team.

Player of the match: Lily Dance

Coache’s player: Amara

Highlight of the match: Amara hitting a powerful ball into the D from a long corner and Lily D getting on the end of it and scoring a goal.
