The U14 side played with great determination against a strong Lord Wandworth College (LWC) team. The first 15 minutes of the first half were extremely close, with the score remaining at 0-0, which was mainly down to a strong defensive performance from newly appointed captain Rebekah and her teammates Greta, Matilda and Antonia.
Ottilie made her debut as Bedales’ goalie, making a fantastic save with a completely outstretched leg. Unfortunately, the relentless LWC attack were able to secure two goals before the half time whistle.
Bedales came back strong, with Sage turning the ball and making a break, scoring a fantastic goal. Bedales as a whole stepped up and applied pressure to the strong LWC side. However, with no subs, fatigue began to rear its head and LWC were able to secure another goal before the end of the game.
Although Bedales lost 3-1, they played with grit all the way to the end. Most valuable players selected by LWC were Ottilie and Rebekah.
