The U11 B team found their feet very quickly at the start of this match and established a pattern of play that gave them the edge over Fettes: moving the ball quickly and dynamically up court and creating lots of shooting chances. Indeed, Cargilfield dominated the first half and were six goals ahead as the teams turned round.
Isla G and Gabriella were initially a fine attacking pair and, but for some casual footwork (which she corrected later in the game), Isla really dominated the D. When Shriyaa moved into Goal Attack, she took a little longer to get control of the ball but did a great job of feeding Isla and finding space for herself. Isla C was a strong influence at Centre and the rest of the team played well around her.
Fettes did come back into the game but Cargilfield pressed hard in the last quarter and made it difficult for their opponents to create many chances. As we discussed between the quarters, the team fought hard to steal the ball and break up play and were then decisive going forward.
A really enjoyable game from the whole team who supported and encouraged each other to maximise their performance. Well done, girls. Won 12-9.
