This week the U9s took on Handcross Park at hockey and Rachel was our captain. The first half saw great play from both teams. Rachel and Priya were making good links in attack while Pippa and Anna were solid in defence and coming forward to make tackles. Tianna and Jennifer were stuck into all areas of the pitch and were bringing the ball forwards nicely. After the first half the score was level at 1-1 with Rachel scoring our goal! This really was going to be an exciting 2nd half.
During the second half both teams continued to play well and Copthorne were making more and more chances to score. With great linking play from a long corner Rachel scored our 2nd goal.
All girls continued to work hard in both attack and defence and Anna was clearing the ball brilliantly from her end. The final score was 2-1 to Copthorne with Anna being voted player
