The under 8s took on Great Walstead this week at hockey. Today’s Captain was Isabella White. The girls were a little nervous but after watching the A team play they were ready to score some goals!
The girls started off well making good use of the walls however they seemed a little afraid to make a tackle letting Great Walstead run with the ball. At half time the score was 4-0 to Great Walstead.
After a good team talk the girls were ready to play. This half was much better and the girls went after the ball and made some good tackles. Lila Bellamy and Callie Benedict were strong in defence and made some goal saving tackles between them. The final score finished 5-0 to Great Walstead.
Despite losing the girls showed how well they can play with a little bit of confidence.
