A strong second team, boosted by those girls not selected for the Dandylions matches took on a similar St Mary’s team.
It was a bitterly cold afternoon but the dynamic movement of the Cargilfield team off the ball kept everyone warm. Two early goals from Katie and Saphira put the St Mary’s team on the back foot and there would have been more goals but for the excellent performance from their goalkeeper.
I was impressed by our ball speed and selection of pass and was not surprised when Clemmie added a third before half-time. Although St Mary’s came back to score in the second half and applied some real pressure in the dying minutes (calling on Caitlin to make a number of saves), Cargilfield can be pleased with the chances they created and the style of hockey they played.
Player of the day was Katie although others made a strong case for inclusion in this year’s (or future) first teams. A super team performance and a very competitive game: the spirit between both teams during and after the game was excellent.
