Throughout the term so far, the use of space on the pitch has been a key point in training. Today the team utilised their space brilliantly, with excellent decision making on when to pass or dribble. It was a great team performance but a particular stand out was Alannah in defence, who put some superb balls forwards. Captain of the day, Katinka, was brilliant in midfield and Josephine and Poppy got some great shots away up front. Although Cargilfield were fairly dominant, St Mary’s had their own attacking opportunities, one of which was successful. Valentina made some fantastic saves, particularly in a 1v1 situation. A great performance against a strong team. Final score- 6-1.
Cargilfield won this match 8-0, despite some good attacking efforts from St Mary’s. Georgia was a strong defensive player, however also grabbed herself 2 goals and was a key part in 2 others. We kept the pressure on well, particularly at hit-outs, with Bethany picking it up well in mid-field. The highlight goal was scored by Charlotte after a fantastic ball in from Cara. Charlotte stepped up brilliantly as captain; leading from the front but it was another real team effort that earned the girls the win.
