U13 V Moreton Hall 

The U13 girls played Moreton Hall who were on a sports tour and had stayed in the boarding house on the Thursday evening. The game started off quite evenly with both teams passing the ball well and creating scoring opportunities. Moreton Hall slowly began to get the upper hand with Ava in goal being kept busy and producing some good saves. As the first half progressed we began to tire and perhaps did not pass the ball as effectively. The defence struggled and Moreton Hall scored five goals before half time.  The girls re-grouped at half time and were set the target of not losing the second half. With renewed energy St Hugh’s started the second half well and Bridie scored an impressive goal, soon followed by a second when Pippa converted Bridie’s cross. Ava continued to make good saves in goal and we restricted them to only one goal in the second half until the final seconds when they scored their second. The girls drew the second half 2-2 which was very encouraging.
