What an afternoon for the U12 girls!
The first half was pretty even. It was clear we were the stronger team as we were using the space much better, but we kept letting our opposition into the D through a lack of marking. The score at the end of the first quarter was 4-5 to Birchfield. With a few changes, we defended much more solidly and attacked with gusto! Abigael (WD) made some fantastic interceptions and Charmaine (GD) stayed close to her opposition. Emily (GK) marked confidently and Birchfield only managed to score 2 more. The score at half time was 12-7.
Chloe (GS) went from strength to strength in the second half, making some awesome shots on goal and working closely with Kirstie (GA). Excellent links between Kirstie and Jessica H (C) meant we were able to extend the lead against Birchfield. Maicee worked really hard to intercept the ball and got into some fantastic spaces for her teammates.
We continued to put the pressure on, right up to the last second and were able to mount up an excellent win of 19-12! Well done everybody, excellent teamwork today!
