For a team that had never played together before, I have never seen such a beautifully played game of hockey! All the coaching advice Kevin Boniface and Mariela Walton gave at training were actually put into action, making it look like this team had been playing together for years.
Two players from the U15 team, Lally Arengo-Jones and Anna, stepped up and fitted in with the team well, providing many opportunities for a goal as well as Anna scoring a terrific goal in the second half. Sage Bidwell and Rebekah Leach stepped up from the U14 team and played magnificently.
Rebekah kept calm and opened up the game from the back of the pitch and Sage was a noticeable force in attack scoring the first and last goal of the game. The regulars in the U16s played like professionals, with Esther Stewart as acting captain rallying the troops from the defence. Sasha Arney, Mabel Watson, Gala Pearson, Etty Bratley, Sammy Smith and Nell Freeborough added to the score scoring a goal each (Nell with 2).
A brilliant afternoon out with committed and talented players. Final score 9-0 with Sasha selected as Most Valuable Player.
