U13 hockey girls played at home against Worksop College. Following the previous day’s disappointments we discussed and worked on our weaknesses before the game and we started strongly. Our press was high and we played fast and direct hockey. Despite being the team on top, it was Worksop who scored first in the 8th minute of the second quarter as they broke into our D and shot to the side of Amelia. We kept a good pressing game and kept getting into the area but were unable to get some clear shots at goal.
In the second half Jasmine took control of the right wing making direct runs to the line, Lucy was decisive with her clearances, Aurora was taking faster passes of dead balls, Alice was defending well as well as attacking and Kelsey and Annabel were both harrying the opposition’s defence and creating opportunities. In the 3rd quarter we scored from a penalty corner, only for it to be ruled out for not having left the D.
In the final quarter spirits and energy levels were still high and we continued to press and finally we scored as Jasmine pushed home at the back post after 4 minutes. We continued to push for the winner and the ball was stopped on the goal line. With 7 seconds to go we got the winner as Annabel reverse hit the ball past the goalie. A 2-1 final score line was well deserved and greatly received. Girl of the game as chosen by Worksop was Lucy for stoic defence as well as a mazy run forward.
