U11A Hockey v Loretto
The U11A team were ready to take on Loretto for the return leg. They have been our biggest competition this season. The team; Lottie CB (Capt), Cecilia (GK), Athena, Emily B, Thalia, Olivia M, Beatrice DH, Zinnia and Alice B. The girls started off slow and quiet and took a while to get into the game allowing Loretto keep most of the ball possession. We lacked energy and watched Loretto play with the ball rather than going into to attack. This allowed Loretto to hit a ball into the back of the net twice before we woke up! The team then sprung into action with Athena, Emily and Alice running up and down the pitch in Midfield. The girls started to show determination and started passing up and the wings with some cracking passes into the circle. Cecilia had a very busy afternoon and saved a large number of goals, even taking on the opposition one on one and saving 5 attempts in a row at goal showing how much she has come on over the season. After the half time chat the girls continued to step up the energy and enthusiasm.
The girls have a great understanding of their positions now and this was evident, they have come along way since the beginning of the season and working really well as a team which allowed them to score a further 3 goals in the second half finishing the game 6-3, Well done!
