Hockey Fixture vs Aylestone - review

A great first game back for the U16 hockey team, with a successful 6:0 win against Aylestone this afternoon. The match began quite slowly but it didn’t take long for our girls to quicken the pace of things with lots of lovely passing and dribbling in the opposing half. As a result of our constant pressure, we took our chances, going 3:0 up at half time; thanks to our first goal from Esther W and Beth C slotting in the other two. Following Mrs Walton’s motivational and tactical talk at half time, we started the second half with the same intensity as before. Aylestone began the second half stronger than the first, so our defence had to stay strong throughout and managed to keep a clean sheet with lovely sweeping from them all. We soon had more of the possession in their half and were rewarded with three more goals: two from Harriet A and the last from Tara M. A special mention to our ‘Player of the match’, Haf R, awarded by Aylestone for her constant effort throughout the game as an attacker and being fearless in any challenges and tackles that came up against her. An overall amazing result and positive start to the hockey tournament, as we are now through to the next round. Well done girls!!!
