This week the U8s took on Caterham in their games lesson. Due to various illness we had to borrow some Year4 players to make up the numbers.
My Captain this week was Emily Goodfellow who got us off to a good start by winning the toss and choosing the first centre pass. The girls started off really well and within minutes Annabel Preen scored a fantastic goal. The girls continued to play well throughout the first half linking the ball down court and defending brilliantly in the Caterham circle. At half time the score was 1-1. The girls were definitely warmed up now and ready to play!
Both teams continued to play well with good passing, footwork and lots of interceptions! Copthorne had a few chances on goal in the second half but the Caterham defence were really good. The girls didnt give up and kept dodging for the ball. Their hard work paid off and the winning goal was scored by Callie Benedict! The final score was 2-1 to Copthorne!
Well done to Jemima Caldwell and Sheen Dullo for their great defence throughout the match!
A well deserved win girls … well done!
Thank you to all players and supporters.
