Today was the first hockey fixture for the season, the first fixture for our year 5 girls, and the first fixture for the year 5’s and 6’s together. The girls had only 2 hockey lessons prior to the match and they played fantastically.
The new Year 5 girls have learnt quickly how to play in a competitive situation, with Phoebe and Ruby supporting Izabella brilliantly in defence, clearing the ball time and time again to stop The Park girls scoring.
We were playing on a very different 4G pitch which is not what our girls are used to, and although they found it difficult to get a lot of power behind their passes, Amelie and Victoria were able to both score for Moyles Court, and Lola was unlucky to have a further goal uncounted during the second half.
A fabulous start to the season, and I look forward to seeing this team progress over the term.
Final Score U 11 Moyles Court – 2 The Park – 4
Captain : Lola Cuckney
Players of the Match: Amelie and Victoria
