The U12 girls team had an outstanding triangular to start 2018, not bad after an extended Christmas break and 6 weeks of not playing together. The girls and parents made their way to Colfe’s for this tournament against 3 Blackheath teams, 2 Ashford teams and a team from Gore Court. Luckily most of the opposition had lots of players so all 8 of the girls were able to play all of the games.
The girls played so well as a team with quick passes, speedy runs down the wing and marksman accuracy in finding the back of the goal. They showed great strength, stamina and determination in each game which showed them outwitting their opponents on many occasions. The midfield of Hannah, Olivia and Caitlin played superbly to enable the forwards to score the fabulous goals they did. The girls versatility was shown by them playing in different positions throughout the games and meant the goals were shared around.
Game 1 vs Gore Court, 3 – 0 win. Hat trick for Isabella
Game 2 vs Blackheath Swifts, 1 – 0 win. Scorer Isabella
Game 3 vs Blackheath Scarlets, 6 – 0 win. Scorers: Caitlin (hat trick), Isabella (x1), Elizabeth (x1). Elyse and Isabella were both on hand for the 5th goal but the goal mouth scramble made it too difficult to see who had the final touch!
Isabella kindly swapped with Libby to go in goal so Libby could play some hockey!
Game 4 vs Ashford Locos, 3 – 0 win. Scorers: Caitlin, Elizabeth made a powerful shot for the 2nd which was going in regardless but Anna gave it a touch to ensure it went in! The same happened again with the 3rd goal but this time from a strong shot from Caitlin
Game 5 vs Blackheath Lightning, 9 – 0 win. Scorers: Anna (hat trick), Caitlin (x2), Elizabeth (x4)
Game 6 vs Ashford Colts, 1 – 1 draw. Scorer Caitlin. This was a hard fought game, dominated by SV. In the dying minutes Ashford used their physical strength to gain the ball and power their way through to score ... not sure the England keeper could have stopped that ball!
Great Day out for Girls and Parents, Well done.
