The girls had a wet and windy match against Mary Erskine this week. The match was fairly even for the first 5 or 10 minutes and despite and early goal from Laura, both teams fought hard to keep in the match. Emma L captained the team today and she was outstanding in defence, staying calm and clearing the ball away wide. What impressed me today was the build-up of play; we didn’t panic and we worked hard at getting the ball played in to sensible positions on the pitch so that our forwards could make a run to receive the ball. Saphira and Laura worked very hard up front and Laura was rewarded by a hat-trick today. Our midfield fed some lovely balls through and it was great to see Rosanna looking strong in there, with Alannah pulling her opposition wide before bringing the ball back in to play. Hannah had some good work in the circle and she scored in front of goal in the second half. Catherine made some cracking tackles today and practically nothing got past her. Clemmie played a bit in midfield and picked up players well in defence too to stop the MES girls scoring. As always, Flora ran her socks off and worked extremely hard, being one of our stronger players. Amy had quiet then busy spells in goal and it was great to see her have the confidence to come out her goal a bit more and really close down the opposition.
