Stoneygate 1, Witham 0
A good result for the girls today as Witham are always strong.
We had some particularly good ball skills from Millie in the first half and Joanna was strong in defence. A clever pass from Millie to Evie, who scored, gave us a lead before half time. Hattie worked really hard on the wing drawing the defenders away from the D.
We were a little lazy in the second half and the ball was often passed to the opposition rather than taking our time and scanning for safe passes. Witham pressurised hard, but Gizella and Joanna defended well and Katie and Amy ran the ball down the wings creating space. Tasia made an excellent save, giving us a win rather than a draw.
Players of the match: Amy for always staying in position and for making the best pass of the day, Tasia for that brilliant save!
Special mention: Hattie for excellent ball skills today
Well played everyone.
Team: Amy, Joanna, Gizella, Evie, Millie P, Tasia, Polly and Liana
Stoneygate 4, Grace Dieu 1
Yesterday the girls played against Grace Dieu. During the first half most of the attacking play was by the Stoneygate girls and Millie, Evie, Polly and Amy pressurised hard with a great goal from Millie off a big hit. The goalie didn’t stand a chance!
During the second half the girls scanned and passed more creating space and two goals from Evie. Joanna was superb in defence and had a cracking second half as left mid where she took the ball all the way down the wing and scored a very deserved goal.
Gizella and Liana both had good games in defence and Tasia saved a couple of very good shots.
Players of the match: Joanna and Millie
Special Mention: Evie for great passing, creating space and goal scoring opportunities
Well played girls.
Gizella, Joanna, Amy, Evie, Polly (Captain), Tasia and Millie
The U11 girls travelled to Wellingborough today for what we knew would be one of our toughest matches. Stoneygate took control of the game from the beginning, working well as a team and holding their positions, on a pitch that was much bigger than they are used to. Evie scored a cracking goal early on and Amy followed with a goal which she worked hard for.
During the second half Millie was unlucky not to score on several occasions and Polly had a very good shot saved by the Wellingborough goal keeper. Evie worked tirelessly at the top of the D and scored another goal for Stoneygate and Millie worked hard at finding space and attacking the goal.
Joanna and Gizella were very strong in defence, giving Wellingborough few chances to shoot, and at sending the ball back to our midfield players. Wellingborough did have a couple of good shots which were saved by Tasia who was cast iron in goal.
Final score – Stoneygate 3, Wellingborough 0
Player of the match – Evie
A really good win today girls, very well done.
U11A v Stamford
The girls had a slow start in this match and were down 3-0 half way through the first half. However, after some position changes and some much more lively play they held their own for the rest of the first half. During the second half we were very much in the game and it became a well fought match. We used the wings much better and scanned for space and passes.
Millie L had a great run down the right wing and made a good pass to Daisy who nearly scored. Katie had a great game as centre forward, working hard to move into space and take the ball into the D. Millie P was chosen by the Stamford girls as player of the match, which was well deserved.
Final score Stamford 4, Stoneygate 0
U11B v Stamford
In our lesson prior to this match we worked on using the wings, scanning and passing safely. The girls used what they had learnt to their benefit and were strong and confident throughout this match. Polly(Captain) played the best hockey I have seen her play to date, with some excellent runs down the wing and passes into Evie and Millie. Gizella and Joanna were strong in defence and Evie and Millie worked well in the centre. Annie enjoyed playing in the centre and Amy had a cracking game as right mid, scoring two of the 4 goals. Evie scored the other 2 goals and deserves a special mention for excellent ball control.
The player of the match chosen by Stamford was Gizella, for fantastic defending.
Final score Stoneygate 4, Stamford 0
Thursday 8th October
Team: Alice, Isobelle, Mia, Lea, Phoebe, Tabitha and Daisy
Stoneygate made a fast and furious start in this game and Alice scored 3 goals in the first third. Isobelle was very strong in the middle of the pitch and made some great tackles. Alice could not be stopped by any of the opposition and went on to score a further 4 goals. Phoebe was strong in defence pushing the ball back up the pitch and Lea and Mia used their wings well.
During the final third we moved Daisy and Tabitha into attacking positions and Isobelle and Alice into defence. Daisy attacked and defended with lots of determination and a great run down the wing by Mia and a pass into Tabitha, who scored gave us another goal.
Player of the match: Alice
