Junior Hockey at Stonyhurst
Our girls’ hockey teams continued their fine form with an away Saturday fixture at St Mary’s Hall Stonyhurst.
The U9 team’s game was a close encounter with both sides having opportunities in a competitive first half. Lisa bossed the game at the back with Ruby and Esther defending well too. In midfield Layla played superbly, breaking up attacks and feeding our forwards with accurate passes. We created a few chances in the first half but were unable to take the lead.
In the second half we dominated more and created several decent chances. From one of these the ever skilful Kirtika hit the post. However, we were not to be denied and Kirtika got her just rewards with a well taken goal half way through the half. Zara and Connie played well too in supporting Kirtika up front, and in the end a 1-0 win was deserved.
The U10 team continued their superb form completely dominating the game. Our dynamic trio up front once again linked the play with free flowing hockey. Charlotte, Carly and Jessie shared eight goals between them and this led to our second 8-0 victory in a row. However, it was also pleasing to see Jessica play with great composure in midfield, and Anna and Priyanka continue their development too. Keeper Maisy and sweeper Lilly had very little to do in the game.
Well played to both our teams and thanks again to our parents for their great support and for Stonyhurst for their lovely hospitality.
