On Wednesday 10th February we played Denstone Prep in the glorious sunshine.
We had a slow start, as usual, making our opposition look slick. During the first half Grace D and Kirstie only managed one goal each to Denstone Prep's four. Luckily we woke up in the second half. Jessica and Jemima made some amazing interceptions, passing fluidly onto Kirstie and Grace D. Their shooting was confident and Grace managed 3 overhead shots from the edge of the D... how does she manage it?! We scored 5 in that quarter and Denstone Prep. didn't manage to get any... Jessica C at GK didn't even touch the ball!
We were on fire in the last quarter and were determined to hold our lead of 7-4. Denstone Prep brought on the reinforcements of our old friend, Grace TR, who managed to stop quite of few balls to Grace D (with the unfortunate height difference, DD didn't stand much chance!) Anyway, that didn't stop us as we managed to get 5 more and Denstone Prep only got one, thanks to excellent defending from Evi, Harriet and Jessica C.
The final score was 12-5 to Yarlet.
Well played today girls, you dug deep and worked well as a team!
