AKS welcomed a touring side from Methodist College Belfast on Friday 16th November. This was a tough game against a very skillful and strong squad of girls. The game was played at a frenetic pace and the Belfast side scored two quick goals from two well worked short corners. However AKS started to attack down the right and Hattie R made some fantastic skillful and driving runs to set up chances and win corners with Lily H, Nyah H and Ruby W being unlucky not to get a goal. The team began to pass the ball round with greater speed and power and this enabled AKS to really compete and put the pressure on the opposition. In the second half the work rate was phenomenal from the whole team and the man to man marking improved hugely, restricting the movement and breaking down the play of the opposition. The second half was much more of an even battle with AKS passing the ball with greater confidence. The final score of 0-5 was a brilliant attempt against a very strong team. Methodist College is a much bigger school with over 300 girls to select from so the AKS Y9 team did us proud. The hosts enjoyed the coca cola cake and refreshments before heading off for their final night before the flight home. Special mention to Sydney G who has played in goal so far this season but had her first match out field and to Grace S in her first AKS A team match. Player of the match: Hattie R for her determination, pace and skill with which she was driving with the ball down the right.
