We all knew that this was going to be a tough game, having trained on grass for the past 3 days playing on the GW astro was going to be a different story!

However, the Copthorne girls started the match off really well with some good passages of play. Katherine, who was making her debut in goal made some lovely saves with Catherine and Maddie being made to work very hard in defence.

Khushi made some good runs and had a couple of chances to score, but she just couldn’t find the goal.

Hermione worked tirelessly in the mid field and she was rewarded with the first goal of the game with a lovely quick side line pass from Khushi.

The Great Walstead girls regrouped and soon came back with their own goal, after a goal mouth scramble. They scored again just before half-time to go into the lead 1-2.

During the second half the Copthorne girls started to wilt in the heat and make silly mistakes. The GW team had 3 more players plus a spare GK to sub on and the flurry of goals soon came.

Credit should go to all the girls who fought to the end. Huge thanks to the mums who came to support and congratulations to Hermione who, quite rightly, was voted Player of the Match. MJ

Team: Hermione (Capt), Khushi, Katie, Tasha, Maddie, Madison, Catherine , Katherine (GK).
