Copthorne looked strong from the onset as they soon converted the first centre pass into a goal. Although our shooting was not as accurate as it can be it. The girls attack was unstoppable and it wasn’t long before they were scoring. Lancing’s shooting was very accurate but our defence was too strong to allow them the opportunity.
Although we finished the first quarter at 5-2 it was in the second quarter that Copthorne showed why they are such a strong team. Both the passing and defending were excellent and there were some great interceptions from all the girls. Lancing were only able to score 3 more goals whereas our girls roared ahead with another 11.
Five minutes into the third quarter the girls had scored another 5 goals so it was decided that some of them would be moved around. However, as our players are quite versatile we continued to score thus ending the match with a total of 24 goals to Lancing’s 6.
So well done girls; Alys, Liliana, Jemima, Harriet, Karina, Elizabeth, Hannah & Zillyan. LD
