U11 Hockey 6 Dec 17

A super way to end our season, with a good win against a very able Riley House side. We struggled from the age old syndrome of being half asleep after the long journey, and it took the girls a while to find their feet, and their structure. After the pleasing play of the week before I began to think I had brought a different team along! Thanks to our strong defence and able goal keeping, Riley’s many shots were thwarted and we went in to half time 1-0 up after a cracker of a goal from Elsa.

The girls were given a fairly stern half time talk which had the desired effect and a whole new team emerged. Feisty and ready to fight for the cause, there were some super stick skills and strong running on display. Riley were unlucky not to score and for once, in an even game, we got the second goal and ran out victorious.

A great term of hockey with 11 games played, 6 wins,4 losses and a draw, 29 goals for and 23 against.

Bravo!
