On Tuesday 27th September the Yarlet U9 girls' hockey team was ready for their first match of the year against The Ryleys.
The team consisted of all Form 4 girls. Both teams played without a goalkeeper and Yarlet knew this would mean a lot defence work from the back of the team. Emily Cumberbatch (Captain) lead Yarlet with the first push back straight to Yarlet's midfielders Amelia Lucas and Katie Hewitson keeping possession between them and pushing into The Ryleys' half. Freya Lloyd was ready to speed up the game by taking the ball into the D and scoring. Then all the girls in the team wanted to have a shot at goal with Raphie scoring 1, Katie scoring 1, Louiza scoring 1, Amelia scoring a hat-trick and Freya scoring another goal.
The match finished 8-0. Our star of the match was Katie Hewitson. A superb first match girls, you wowed the supporters and Miss Davis a greal deal. Well done!
