The last game of the season for the U11As was away at BHHS. The team was Gabi (capt), Annabelle, Amelie, Robin, Amreet, Charlotte, Keira and Zara. It was a particularly cold afternoon and the girls got stuck in straight away. The Copthorne girls had possession for most of the first half but unfortunately could not get the ball into the back of the net. We saw some great passing between the girls but at half time they were rather frustrated. Copthorne then went into the second half determined to score and overcome their frustration. This they did and they were like a different team, dominating this half and only allowing BHHS into the D once due to Amreet and Keira’s fantastic defending! The attackers all worked hard to create chances which they used to their advantage and Zara set up a good goal for Robin who pushed it into the goal to put them 1-0 up! This goal was soon followed by a second spectacular goal by Gabi, who went for it as soon as she got into the D, shooting the ball into the corner past the goalie; it was the best goal I’ve seen all season! Copthorne then continued to apply the pressure and between Annabelle, Robin and Zara they set up another goal for Gabi to secure the win 3-0.

A great second half girls and a good way to end a successful hockey season! POM for the first half was Robin and Gabi was POM for the second half. Gabi also received BHHS POM overall too. Well done to all of the U11As for a super hockey season and best of luck for the netball season after Christmas.
