On Friday 10th November, the U11 hockey team played the Buchan School from the Isle of Man. AKS played well from the off, passing the ball quickly and creating lots of scoring opportunities. It was not long before Jessie scored her first goal with a lovely reverse flick. The team continued to play attacking hockey, with runs down the right and down the left side of the pitch and Jessie soon slotted her second past the keeper. Jessie, Carly and Charlotte pushed forward and put the Buchan School under a lot of pressure throughout the game.
Jessica, Lisa and Anya provided a solid defence, quickly winning the ball back from the opposition when needed, and they provided good forward passes. AKS were awarded a penalty corner, and Carly cleverly passed a short ball to Charlotte who scored the third goal. Mr Hodgkinson then made some changes with Anna and Priyanka coming on to play. The team continued to play well and three more goals were scored, one each for Jessica, Jessie and Priyanka. At the end of the first half, the score was 6-0.
The second half very much mirrored the first half, Mr Hodgkinson made more changes but the team continued to work well together and supported one another. More goals were scored, another four for Jessie, and two for Charlotte. The final score was 12-0.
Overall, this was a great team performance and the U11 team remain undefeated this season. We would like to thank Mr Hodgkinson for all his advice and support, to the parents for watching and most of all to the Buchan School for coming to play us.
