The U9 team had a very successful afternoon at the Birchfield tournament, coming away with 2 wins and 3 VERY narrow defeats.
The team worked really well together in the middle, with Raphie making her debut on the wing. Lots of running and shouting from Ellen and Amelia meant we could attack with confidence, while our shooters, Ella and Sophie, were calm and didn't miss an opportunity all afternoon!
Old Hall and Prestfelde gave us some challenging competition where our defenders, Purdy and Freya, had to work hard to mark and stay with their opponents. Louiza and Tilly made some lovely interceptions and snatched the ball well. Alice intercepted the ball on many occasions and made the most of the space on the court.
With successes against Birchfield and Packwood, we were unlucky not to come away with a draw against Old Hall, as their shot went into the net just as the final whistle went.
Some very promising play from all the girls, you really communicated well and used the space to make some lovely strong passes to each other.
Well done girls!
