U11A Hockey v St. George's U12

St.Mary’s-5: St. George’s 1
Wednesday 20th March 2019

 Captain: Skye


After a 27 year absence in fixtures against St George’s, it was lovely to be re-engaging with their hockey teams and we enjoyed playing on their new Astroturf.
The U11A team took the bull by the horns and made their way quickly in to the St George’s D;it became clear that we were up against an incredibly strong GK as our many attempts on goal were re buffed until a ball, sent to a well-placed Kate, slammed home our first! This was the lift the girls needed and they continued to play some lovely, flowing hockey. A second goal, this time a solo effort from Tiggy gave us a 2-0 lead at half time.
St George’s came out fighting in the second half, and took us by surprise, when they scored within the 1st minute. Not to be outdone, Kate netted her second which Tiggy then emulated. Sophie and Mabel continually pressured the feisty GK and must be commended for their efforts in attack, while Freyja, our playmaker, danced around the opposition, dropping the ball back or feeding it wide, took her chance and scored our 5th goal of the game. Skye and Anna were as adaptable as ever, playing in defence at first then swapping in to attack, they relished the challenge of a different positon. Lily was solid in defence, though given very little to do; it was great to hear her shout and advise from the back, as she could see all that was happening-the mark of a good goalie! The final whistle of our final game and a 5-1 victory.
It has been a pleasure and a privilege coaching this talented and talkative bunch-by jove I’ll miss them! Good luck in the ranks of senior hockey, girls!
