Match Reports

U11A Team

Result: L 2-1

We welcomed Wisbech GS this week for a home match which we opted to play at Horncastle HC given the larger pitch size and to allow our two U9 teams to play on our astro at school.

The U11A team enjoyed the space and over the course of the game used this to good effect. Alicia T captained the team this week and having won the toss she opted to take first centre pass - always a wise decision! St Hugh’s were expecting a strong Wisbech side but I think surprised themselves with how well they played as a team, both on the offence and defence.  

There was some lovely phases of play and some super counter attacks and it was clear that the girls were working their socks off on the pitch. Annabelle J took to the goal this week and made some cracking saves having been spotted as having great potential during training. Though we were 1-0 down at half time, the team set themselves a target to equalise in the second half. Well…..it was a long time coming BUT a cracking goal was scored by Kitty in the last few minutes of play! This was following a super early shot from Millie as she drove into the circle. 

Wisbech continued to fight back and as a very physical team were also quick to react to the umpire's whistle. This led to a second goal, ending the game 1-2 to the opposition. A super game and a real privilege to umpire. Well done, team St Hugh’s!
