FIRST HOCKEY MATCH OF THE SEASON

UNDER 13A STONEYGATE SCHOOL V OAKHAM

TEAM; Gracie (Captain), Molly, Freya, Gina, Ellie, Pippa, Antonia .

Player of the match; Gina for her excellent tackling ability in defence.

Special mention; Freya for making her debut as the 1st team goalie and making some excellent saves.

On Wednesday 23rd of September the U13 A team had a hockey match against Oakham School. This was our first match of the year and we were all a bit nervous, especially Freya, who was playing goal keeper for the first time EVER! However, Freya played amazingly in goal and surprised all of us with her brilliant kicking.

At half time we were 3-0 down but managed to stay positive after our team talk and brought the score up to 3-3. Gina and Pippa were very strong in defence and were a big help in both the scoring of goals and saving them, with the help of Molly in the centre. On the wings were Antonia and Ellie, running their socks off to perform in defence and attack.

Unluckily, we let in two clumsy goals at the end of the match, but overall the team played very well.
