Stoneygate School V Fairfield School
TEAM; Alice (captain), Isobelle, Roisin, Daisy, Tabitha, Mia, Phoebe.
This was the Year 3’s first hockey match of the season. The girls were very excited, but also very apprehensive. Fairfield had first push back and started the game brightly. Stoneygate were a little tentative at the start, however soon pushed forward with excellent dribbling skills from Alice who took the ball all the way from the defensive circle to the attack circle, allowing Mia to score Stoneygate’s first goal of the game and to put us ahead. However, Fairfield soon stepped up their game and equalised, to make the game 1-1. The match proved to be end to end hockey with lots of attacking play from both teams. However, it was Fairfield that scored the final goal that marginally put them ahead to win the game.
A great start to the hockey season from the Year 3 girls.
Player of the Match went to; Alice for her excellent stick control and dribbling.
This was an unlucky result, but a fantastic performance from all the Year 3 girls. Well done girls!
