Girls' Hockey - U11 C VII vs Felsted Prep
Playing a Year 6 team could have been intimidating for the girls as we had only one, the remainder being year 5s with one year 4!!
However, the girls did not let this get to them and they played a very positive match despite having had no training sessions since the start of half term.
Although the score finished 3 - 0 to the opposition, the score did not reflect the match as we more than held our own.
Alexandra M and Sophie P made some excellent tackles to win the ball on many occasions and behind them, Maia A read the ball well to make many good saves.
Our forwards, Sophie H, Olivia R and Isobel B all made some good runs down the pitch with Olivia in particular holding her position well making it much easier for the defence to feed the ball to her.
Centre Half Keira W was voted Holmwood's player of the match by the opposition and this was well deserved. Throughout the match she worked tirelessly to link the ball between the defence and the forwards and she kept her passes wide to open the play out making it much easier for us to make progress down the pitch.
A great match, girls. Well done!
