Hockey - Girls U11 A, B & C VIIs vs Ipswich High (A)


The girls played brilliantly and were an absolute pleasure to watch and umpire! The first half ended 0-0 although it was incredibly exciting the girls were only playing to about 90% of their potential! However they really pulled it together in the second half!! Well done girls!

Final Result:  Holmwood 2 - 0 Ipswich High School


The girls played really well today. I have seen so much improvement in their teamwork and general play. The girls played their hearts out despite their defeat.

Special mention to Poppy A who really gave it her all in goal and Lulu G for showing constant persistence in her play. Well done girls!

Final Result:  Holmwood 0 - 2 Ipswich High School


The girls enjoyed a thrilling and very fiercely contested game at Ipswich High School on a very murky Wednesday afternoon. After last week’s very heavy defeat, the girls were determined to try harder and show that they can play well as a team. This they did magnificently in the first half with some excellent interceptions and passing of the ball between them. Hebe W & Sapphire BG made a good partnership up front and Honor D and Lucy P put in some good tackles in midfield to regain possession. At half time there was no score but Holmwood had shown themselves to be a strong team with greater skill than their opponents.

We set out for the second half hoping to maintain our standards but just get the ball into the goal! It looked promising shortly after the restart with Olivia B, Sapphire BG and Hebe W all in the D having shots at goal, but the ball just could not go over the line! Then, with about 3 minutes left to play, Ipswich broke away down the field and managed to dribble the ball into our goal! There was hardly any time left for us to make a comeback but the girls played on with determination and were desperate to even the score, but they were not given any further shots at goal. It was a shame that the girls lost as they were the better team technically, but we played so much better this week so well done Holmwood!

Final Result:  Holmwood 0 - 1 Ipswich High School
