Sports Report - Yr7 hockey
On Tues the yr7s played their first tournament in very chilly conditions. In the first game the girls were dominant despite still finding their feet as a squad. Katie Escott controlled the midfield with Bethan Hambly learning quickly and working hard. The defenders of Morgan and Lauren were shivering at the back whilst Enya Cresswell and Sky Frost scurried around in attack. Unfortunately they just couldn't quite get the ball into the goal. Haygrove had a break away and managed to against the run of play , bobble the ball over the goal line.
In the second game v Haygrove a change of positions and a turned ankle, alongwith Haygrove suddenly 'clicking' saw a more even game. Haygrove stood hard in the tackle distributing the ball wide and CHilton lost a little structure . Both teams battled hard and Haygrove managed to pop a goal in as did Katie . A Haygrove 2-1 win
The game against King Alfred's under floodlight saw Bethan Hambly fighting hard for the ball . She linked with Ophilia Curd resulting in a lovely goal. King Alfred's quickly replied with a goal of their own. A little later another good linking move led to a goal form Katie. Resulting in a 2-1 win .
A great start ...next game next Tues at Chilton...
