U11 HOCKEY V DENSTONE PREP

November 25th Fixtures v Foremarke SHP and Hockey v Denstone Pr 015

We had a much anticipated game against our rivals, Denstone Prep yesterday.

We knew they would be strong on the tackle, led by our old team-mate Grace TR. The first half looked promising when we made some clean passes around the pitch and held our position well.

A disallowed Short Corner goal did not hamper our spirits as we kept fighting and eventually got a goal after some excellent teamwork from Grace D and Jessica Hood, helping Kirstie to put it in the back of the net.

Evi and Harriet continued to make some excellent lead runs down the wing but sometimes weren't quite in the right space. Jemima and Danielle worked confidently in defence but did have a habit of passing the ball straight back to the opposition.

The second half was much faster as Denstone Prep. upped their game. Jessica Hood started to pass the ball more often, assisted by Jemima, up front. We were unlucky to concede a goal after our defence forgot to mark but soon got one back from a short corner.... Only to be told that it was disallowed again!

So 1-1 and all the play for with 3 minutes left. Luckily we managed to get another Short Corner and in it went, meaning we had won the game!

2-1 and a well fought match! Well done everyone!
