Girls U13B Hockey v Wellingborough – Away
On Wednesday 12th November
Milly G (Capt.), Sophie E, Pippa N, Charlotte N, Caitlin G, Antonia V, Eleanor B, Molly J, and Freya A.
Wellingborough had twice as many girls to choose from and with more than half of our team being year 7s compared to their team of all year 8s, we knew we were in for a battle. We began positively with great determination. Milly competed hard throughout, battling and tackling to fight for the ball. Ellie made some super passes linking the play. Caitlin in goal, was absolutely awesome. She made many significant saves, kicking the ball clear from the goal. She covered the goal so effectively, following the play carefully. The improvement in her play has been quite remarkable. With the game still scoreless halfway through the second half, Wellingborough got the chance to shoot for goal and their accurate placement into the corner of the net, finally beat Caitlin.
It was unfortunate for our girls as a draw would have seemed fair but it was a good goal.
Congratulations to all the girls for their super spirit and effort.
Final score: Stoneygate lost 0-1
Special mention to Milly for her hard work and contribution throughout
Player of the match – Caitlin for her excellent goalkeeping
