Hockey U13 vs Culford

Final Score: Lost 6-2

Despite the heavy score line this was a fantastic match for the Holmwood girls. The first five minutes were disastrous as Culford continued to break through our defence but finally Tammi E and Misha B sorted out the marking and Charlotte H woke up in goal and for the ten minutes leading up to half time we were stopping them at halfway and having several attacks of our own. The second half was a completely different game with Hollie DR's goal giving everyone a well needed boost we began to play with confidence and, when Kaela S swept in a first time shot from the left post, the girls grew two inches and started to scare the opposition. From being 4-0 down in the first half we finished the second half 2-2 against a physically stronger and more skillful side. Every girl improved during the match and I was thrilled with the outcome - imagine how ecstatic I will be when we win a match!!!
