U18s Hockey vs Bloxham School

1 - 3

Goal scored by Molly Williams.

Player of the match went to Abi Evans.

It was fantastic to see hockey being played after everything that has happened in the last couple of months with the global pandemic. However, after a rusty start which was understandable, we conceded two sloppy goals in the first quarter. In the second quarter we started to dominate possession, with Olivia Jacklin-Chatha, Hannah Channing and Poppy Fenton getting on the ball more and the whole team really getting stuck in which was great to see. Also, defensively Abi Evans and Ella Hurley made some crucial tackles to keep us in the game.

The team really stepped up in the second half and early on Freya Nicklin slipped a defence spitting through ball that the speedy Molly Williams got on the end of and went around the keeper to score and cap off an excellent team goal. Unfortunately, we conceded a well-rehearsed short corner at the end.

Overall, an excellent and a very competitive first fixture and even though all the players enjoyed playing again are determined to improve and bounce back with a win in their next game.
