Sports Report - Girls Hockey
The yr 10 girls took to the field - astro pitch, last night for their first games of the season v Haygrove and King Alfred's. In a cross pitch game against Haygrove the girls soon found themselves overwhelmed by the speedy, strong and determined Haygrove girls and were 2-0 down within minutes. The reality of the reactions, strength and determination they needed was a shock and they lost by lots. 😞
However rather than just put the blame on the opposition being 'too rough' they acknowledged that they needed to 'man up' and go for it.
The next game saw Haygrove just beat King Alfreds in a tight full pitch game.
In the last game of the triangular tournament chilton faced King Alfred's. What a difference. The girls followed Zoe M's lead of speedier attack and within minutes Jess S had got on the end of a cross from Iona B and scored past the KAS keeper. The defenders stepped up and with more confidence made solid tackles AND then solid passes. Olivia Kamin stood strong at the back using the width of play . Xena N-M was quicker to the ball, Eva was marking strongly with Charlotte M and Aleigha P-C working so hard to chase the ball down. This allowed many more chances in the the attacking area for Maddie H , Jess and Iona to trouble the KAS defence. Jess and Iona scored with strong shots to leave the final score 3-0.! a great victory.
Team practice on Tuesday before their next matches the following week will stand them in good stead to reach the Millfield Somerset finals in December.
