Despite the cold the girls were raring to play their first match of the year. Copthorne won the first centre pass and although were unable to score in the first quarter they kept possession of the ball for most of the time. The second quarter was fruitful with Maya Roberts scoring two and Antonia scoring one. By the third quarter Hurstpierpoint were working hard to even the game and their GD certainly kept Antonia working hard to get into a position to score. There were some very good interceptions from Charlotte, Abigail and Amber and our WA, Nia, kept her opponent busy on the wing. Although Hurst managed to score four goals they were prevented from scoring more by some fantastic defending from Ella and Hannah who were relentless with their defence. Our player of the match was undoubtedly Maya who worked hard in the D and managed to score 4 of the goals. Well done girls: a great start to the term.
