Hockey - 1st & 2nd VIIs vs RHS (Away)
Holmwood started the match a little tentatively allowing RHS to rob them of possession every time they approached the goal but a cracking shot from Beth I that ricocheted off the post was cleverly slipped under the goalie by Sarah B. At half time this was our only goal but, with the decision to keep possession and slow the game down in order to maintain the lead, suddenly passes were more accurate and shots on goal were strong and skilful. Evie D went on to score four, Annabel H two, Beth I one and Olivia R her first goal of the season. It was an incredible game to watch against a physically strong opposition whwere this incredible team managed to pull off yet another stunning team effort. What a way to end the term!
Final Result: Holmwood 9 - 0 RHS
The girls played exceptionally well, especially as unbeknown to them they were actually playing against the U12A RHS hockey team. The standard was of the highest faced by our girls all season and once again they rose to the occasion. The individual skill of some of the RHS players, meant that every ball we won or took was most definitely earned. Holly H held the right side of the pitch. So much so RHS put two players on her most of the match. However she still managed to hold on to the ball and charge down the right wing to form an attack. We did have opportunities on goal, some from great passing and set plays, but we just could not find the back of the goal. The final score was 3-0 to RHS, which unfortunately does not reflect how close the match was. The girls showed great tenacity and determination. Each and every member of the squad has improved and they should all be very proud of themselves. They have been great to coach. Thank you and well done !!
