Girls 2nds v 3rds Hockey at Copthorne

14th October 2016

With the opposition disappointingly dropping out earlier in the week the 2nds and 3rds played an internal match on Wednesday afternoon. The teams were mixed up leaving the reds against the greens in what was to be a keenly fought contest with some fierce tackling and excitement for those watching. The match was even for most of the game with opportunities at both ends. Eventually it was the greens who took the lead after some excellent approach play through midfield. Before half time though the red team struck back with a goal of their own. The half time score of 1-1 would leave both teams battling for victory in the second half.

It was the green team who struck first in the second half with a well worked short corner. It didn’t take long for the red team to equalise though in a similar fashion from a short corner. The final few minutes were played at a frantic pace with both teams looking for that elusive goal to win the game. It never came though and a 2-2 score line to finish was probably a fair result.

Well done to all the girls who took part. You made it an enjoyable game and hopefully you will all have learned from the experience of a full match in the sports hall.
