Hockey - 1st VII vs Moreton Hall (H), Wednesday 17 September 2014

This was a stunning performance from the Holmwood girls against a team who were much better than the score suggests. Holmwood scored early with Evie D slipping the ball past the goalie.  Spirits rose and by half-time Evie had scored again and Beth I had continued her scoring streak with two strong hits.

In the second half, the girls tried out lots of changes in position which gave the defence a chance up front, in the hope of limiting the win, but the goals kept on coming.  Annabel H was solid in midfield and managed a great goal herself.  The final goals came from Emma d’A and Sarah B, with the climax to the match being a half-volley first time shot from Millie C – a long time coming but worth waiting for!

A great game played in good spirit and demonstrating the true sportsmanship of every one of the girls.

Result:  Holmwood 8 - 0 Moreton Hall
