Girls U13B Hockey v Bilton Grange
On Wednesday 8th October – Away
Our team: Joni (Capt.), Pippa N, Sophie E, Caitlin G, Molly J, Antonia V, Freya A, Charlotte N and Eleanor B.
After waiting for about 20 minutes for a very heavy thunderstorm and hailstorm to pass, we finally began the match. After a bit of a slow start, we began to tackle more and challenge for the ball. Joni had a very near miss half way through the first half. The ball missed by inches. Caitlin in goal, saved three superb attempts by Bilton, kicking the ball clear on each occasion and keeping us in the game. Both Antonia and Joni worked tirelessly working with the ball and travelling the length of the pitch. Molly and Pippa, in defence, prevented Bilton having many shots at goal and chances to score, as they intercepted well and took the ball off their opposition.
Even though it was end to end stuff, the match remained scoreless throughout. Probably a fair result in the end.
final score Stoneygate 0 – Bilton Grange 0
Player of the match – Caitlin for her superb saves, keeping us in the game.
Special mention to Molly for her consistent hard work and perseverance in defence.
