U11 Hockey v Loretto

Wednesday 9th November 2016

St. Mary’s 5: Loretto-1

U11 Hockey 91116 
Captain: Mhairi

Another fine performance from this talented bunch of young ladies. Playing 8 a-s ide on a full size pitch did not appear to pose any problems-to the contrary space was used well and the girls had room to show off their considerable skills. It was lovely to receive a compliment from the Loretto umpire about the power of our hits and sweeps (for those of you who follow the team, you will be aware we have worked hard on this aspect of our game!)

After 3 goals, in our favour, I swapped the attack and defence around and those at the back (bar Anna, in goals) got a run around. This formation, despite working well, did not go down well with the girls-perhaps they are getting too familiar with their current position…!

Two more goals in the second half saw us again victorious. All credit to Loretto who at no point gave up and fought to the bitter end.

Goals: Hannah C x4, Molly S x1
