U11 B Hockey Triangular matches v Framlingham and Ipswich
1st Match vs Ipswich School
The long coach journey seemed to take its toll in the first match and we struggled to demonstrate the excellent form we had found in recent weeks. The opposition capitalised on this and were soon 2 goals up in the first half. Sophie D had an excellent half as Centre Forward and both Anna B and Georgia P had to work hard in defence against the onslaught of the Ipswich High attack.
In previous games we have risen to such a challenge, but in the second half our determination and resilience was not to be found! The opposition capitalised with a further 3 goals and it was a very despondent group of girls who walked off the pitch after the final whistle.
2nd Match vs Framlingham Prep
After rather a stern talking to after the first match the girls came out for the second a different team. Pearl P had a very determined game and demonstrated some strong tackling. Holly C worked hard as Centre Half and linked well with the defence and forwards. Davina M capitalised on one such pass and scored, but Framlingham were quick to fight back and finished the half 2 - 1 up.
The second half remained very evenly matched and neither team were able to score again. Sarah E had an excellent half in defence, repeatedly clearing the ball hard to the wings. Ava M also maintained a clean sheet in goal.
Final score 1 - 2
