Hockey Match Report – Girls Under 18 Indoor Tournament

With only four teams entered but only 3 teams showing up, it was all to play for. We played against Newquay Tretherras in the first game, it was a good warm up game before we played against the college. The girls worked the ball around well, getting use to using the rebound boards work them to our advantage and won the game 3-0 even though it should have been a lot more, Tretherras keeper definitely kept the score down!
With Tretherras and Truro College playing in the second game, we watched to see what our rivalry opposition was like as we were due to play them in the final game. Tretherras and College ended 6-1.
We were on against college knowing that it would be a tough game and who ever got the result would be County Indoor Champions. With fast, paced end to end stuff it was a while before the goals started to come. Finally it happened and Billie went on an amazing individual run down the middle of the pitch to slot home goal number one. We continued to pile the pressure on but College had one quick break, catching us on the back foot to bring it back level. With only a couple of minutes left we had the majority of the possession but couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net, as Colleges keeper was playing a stormer. College really piled the pressure on for the last 30 seconds and got awarded a short corner which they slotted home to win the game 2-1. Our girls played very well and deserved to win it as we had all the play, but it wasn’t to be. Well Done Girls!
