Although Copthorne lost the first centre pass It was soon obvious that they were in control of the game. There was some great passing between Freya, Chloe, Tori and Prisha who kept the opposition on their toes. Both Prisha and Chloe worked well in the D and as a result the score was 5-0 by the end of the first ten minutes. In the second quarter Handcross found it difficult to escape the tight marking from our defenders with Emma, Amanda and Micki impeding any attempts at shooting. Our marking was strong and there were some lovely interceptions from all the girls. We reached half-time 8-0.
Despite a couple of changes in the team Copthorne continued to maintain possession of the ball and there was some great shooting from Micki and Rebecca. Handcross scored twice despite the strong defence. In our final quarter the girls changed positions again however it was evident that they have become versatile players with Freya and Rebecca scoring 3 more goals between them.
Well done girls your hard work this term has certainly paid off. Your marking and passing have really improved and your commitment to the game has been commendable. Let’s make the next half of the term even better. Go girls! LD
