This week the U9A team took on a U10B team at Notre Dame. The girls were very nervous as they were playing up an age group but they were ready to play. Captain this week was Sophia who won the toss giving Copthorne the first centre pass.
The girls got off to a bit of a shaky start as Notre Dame scored 2 goals very quickly but once they had adapted to the bigger ball, higher posts and being in the sports hall they began to play how I knew they could. At the end of the first quarter it was 2-1 to Notre Dame. The girls were determined to get all loose balls and grab them in! During the second quarter the girls played brilliantly making good interceptions and passing accurately. The score at half time was 3-3 with an amazing goal from Shriya.
During the second half the girls stepped it up another level again. Jemima and Sophia were solid in defence while Abigail and Emily worked hard to feed the ball into the shooters. Belle scored the winning goal bringing the final score to 4-3 to Copthorne. However this could not have been achieved without the great teamwork from all the girls!
A very exciting match girls and a fantastic win! You have a very proud coach – Well done!
