Yarlet School | U12 GIRLS' HOCKEY


U12 Hockey v Denstone Home 004

On Wednesday 5th October our Form 5-7 girls played host to Denstone C team captained by Jessica Cartmail.


Yarlet got off to a flying start with a goal in the 5th minute by Kirstie Shiner on the left-hand side which she quickly followed up with a 2nd goal in the 7th minute.

Denstone came back with their first effort 10 minutes into play which was confidently kicked away by goal keeper extraordinaire Jessica Cartmail who received high praise from the Denstone coach at the end of the match.

The final piece of action in the 1st half was a short corner which Yarlet failed to transfer into a goal but we ended the first half 2-nil up and feeling confident.

Once again, Yarlet got off to a flying start in the 2nd half with a goal from Alice Beardsmore after 10 minutes. This was quickly followed up by a Dentstone goal making the score 3-1 despite a constant strong defence from Tilly Capewell.

Yarlet took control once again with Kirstie adding another to the Yarlet total with a goal in the 20th minute of the 2nd half and Denstone quickly got a consolation goal 2 minutes later.

The final scoreline was 4-2 with Denstone giving player of the match to Kirstie Shiner.
