U12/11B v Mary Erskine's

A great battle in the wind and rain!

The B team girls had a sluggish start against MES and very quickly found themselves 1-0 down. This was a bit of a wakeup call and we began to play some better hockey, equalising soon after and looking more like a team. We continued to grow in confidence and made some good passes with Issy and Katinka linking well and creating some good opportunities. The play swung from end to end with both teams utilising their breaks, and we saw goals from Poppy, Rose and Clara throughout the match. The tempo dropped a bit in the second half and we failed to put in strong tackles which let the MES girls back in to the game. Despite this, we battled hard and we had a nail-biting finish and came out 5-4 winners. Well done to all for carrying on in such wet and windy conditions!
