U13 1st VII v IAPS Tournament at Orwell Park
A fantastic day of hockey with some really strong opposition. Our first game against Felsted was always going to be a challenge but we held our own and at one point were drawing 1-1 thanks to Kaela S. Unfortunately their continuing attacks soon overpowered us and we lost 3-1. Against St.Faiths we came out with a respectable 0-0 draw and went on to face South Lee with greater confidence. This game was all ours but their goalie made some superb saves against the wrath of Hollie DR until she finally managed to slot home two excellent top corner shots. Kingshot were deceptively strong and despite again drawing 1-1 at one point (Maisy H), they managed to slip a final goal past us. Our final group game against Kings was a tough fight and with fatigue setting in, we were no match to their 3-0 win.
This put us through to the Plate final against OBH where Captain Hollie DR scored a hat trick and the whole team played with confidence and pride.
A solid team effort throughout the day and again a delight to spend time with this fantastic group of girls.
