Sports Report - Year 9 Girls Hockey
The Yr 9 girls hosted King Alfreds school for their first match of the season. A group with 'raw talent' took to the field after a short pre match training session.
A few were rusty about the rules and it took a while for the team to settle into their roles but the enthusiastic play of Erin, Jodie and Morgan forced the ball into attack and a shot just outside the circle slotted into goal- unfortunately this couldn't count. KAS counterattacked and soon Chilton were behind 1-0. Crunching tackles by Jodie, Ella and solid defence by Heloise,Grace and Gouda soon saw Chilton score after a good run by Morgan. A further goal by Erin took CHilton ahead.
Following half time though KAS looked stronger and quickly KAS drew level. Chilton lost focus and despite the solid work of Hollie D, constant running of Erin, Morgan and Ella, KAS were able to capitalise on the gaps and scored to take the lead. An exciting 'move of the game' saw Erin cleverly dodge the defender and slip the ball towards goal. Unfortunately the pass ran agonisingly away from Morgan and the 'goal' was disallowed as the ball had not been touched in side the shooting circle. Final score 2-3 to KAS.
More at training, more focus and listening rather than chatter, will help the group reach their full potential..Lets go for it!!
