Our B squad played against a strong Loretto team today. The match started well for Cargilfield in the first quarter. Loretto then made some swaps and managed to score more. The girls remained in the lead the whole game but it was not a done deal and they had to work hard for their win. They did loose the ball to some footwork issues but most of the game went with a good communication between our players and they did not lose the ball to other mistakes such as contacts or not marking properly, as they had in previous matches.
Cargilfield had 11 players today, so the girls had a chance to swap positions and have a break during one or two quarters. They started with a strong attack with Bea, our captain, in WA, replaced by Rowan in the second quarter. We had Amalia in C, Julia in GA and Amenah in GS. Amenah’s shooting was very accurate and she managed to score most of the balls she received in the circle. In defence we had in turns (in the first two quarters) Emilia and Lexie in GK, Lyla and Anne in WD and finally Lara and Tessa in GD. Those two really used their height to their advantage to defend the Cargilfield net.
The girls got more freedom in choosing their position after the first half of the game as they were winning. Well done, girls, on a very good game against an excellent team.
