The U11s were up for the match today after their Christmas break. Captain, Keira unfortunately lost the toss and chose our shooting end instead. However, it wasn’t long before the Copthorne girls turned over the ball and scored from it … and this was the trend throughout the game!
We were strong in all areas of the court with Gabi, Keira and Charlotte working really well together in attack and Annabelle always moving to find space for a good shot on goal. Zara had a great first quarter in the GK position; strong when contesting for the ball and offloading really well; together with Amreet they prevented the Lingfield shooters from any chances on goal. A ball in the face injury to Keira at the end of the first quarter meant changes in the second.
During this quarter the Lingfield girls were more confident and managed to win by 3 goals to 2. Our play was rushed at times, and we lost our shape for a while. However, the Copthorne girls came out firing on all cylinders in the third quarter and put the game out of Lingfield’s reach. With Annabelle and Keira getting fabulous service from Gabi and Charlotte to score 8 goals between them. Ava and Amreet were excellent in defence and Robin was always on the edge of the D to help bring the ball down to our attack.
Well done girls, an excellent win! Thank you to our supporters and congratulations to Amreet for being voted player of the match!
