Sports Report - Yr 10/11 girls hockey
Whilst Mr Chadwick was left In charge of the yr 7s( and did far too good a job!😊 ) Mrs Hedaux took the yr 11/10 team for their final fixture of the season to KAS. The girls were in usual good spirits, Eva decided to don the goal keeping kit and the girls warmed up for the first game v KAS . Perhaps too many per 6 sessions and not enough hockey practice sessions took their toll. The girls struggled to get going and the defence were put under pressure but they initially kept a clean sheet. Mrs H was imploring the girls to 'get lively' and to react quicker and eventually Jess Shobbrook and Iona got hold of the ball and linked well to work the ball into the attacking D. Alongwith Zoe Mizon the girls put pressure on the KAS defence and were soooo unlucky not to score. A couple of quick breaks saw the KAS forward two outwit Xena NM and Jess V to slam the ball passed Eva. A KAS win.
A stern team talk was needed. Mrs H reminded the yr 11s that this was their final(ever) CHilton league hockey match. There was a need to get stuck in. The girls responded brilliantly. Jasmin L , Aleigha PC hassled the Haygrove midfield and Guoda S pounced on the ball to distribute the ball into attack. Xena NM and Jess V made some key tackles and thwarted many Hay attacks. Zoe , Jess and Iona continued to link well to force saves from the Hay keeper and Kate and Alura worked hard chasing the speedy Haygrove forwards. Hay finally broke the deadlock and popped the ball passed Eva.
So despite these 2 losses the girls have been great company over their 5 hockey years.
