The girls first match today was against Hurst and despite losing the first push back and allowing Hurst to score first, the girls heads never went down, in fact it spurred them on and there was no stopping Ffion and Lowenna today who dominated the pitch! Ffion got on the scoreboard first to level up the score and then right when the half time whistle went Hurst managed to sneak another goal past our defence, putting them at a 2-1 advantage at half time. Copthorne then came out a totally different team in the second half and dominated the play with great defence work from Mona, Tayla and Bella and the attackers Katie, Marissa, Ffion and Lowenna all kept trying to convert continuously throughout the the match, with Lowenna being rewarded in the end with 2 great goals, which lead Copthorne to win this match 3-2!
Copthorne then had a well deserved rest whilst Lingfield played Hurst, with Lingfield being triumphant 1-0 in this match.
Once again Copthorne came out fighting against Lingfield and remained very much the team we had seen in the second half of the previous match! The girls dominated most of the possession and Mona and Tayla were solid in this match in defence, allowing only one opportunity in the D in this whole match! The attack again worked hard and Ffion and Lowenna were not going to stop, until Copthorne had got on the score line. Again they were rewarded with another great goal from Lowenna, which won them the match 1-0!
All in all a great afternoon of hockey for the U10Bs, it is nice to see the progression you are all making each week. Keep working hard hard girls, as it all pays off in the end!
POM today was Lowenna picked in the Hurst match and Tayla in the Lingfield. I think all of the girls played well today but my POM have to be Ffion and Lowenna who both were beetroot by the end of the match! Well done girls.
