Under 11 Girls’ Hockey v Mount Kelly
Wednesday 28 November 2018
Team GB played first on the astro at Truro School. They faced a stronger side from Mount Kelly, consisting of only Year 6 players. Our mixed Year 5 and 6 team were unlucky not to score, despite several breaks with the ball for both Eva and Isabel. Zara, Eva, Beth and Izzy all stood out in this match for their sheer determination and movement into space.
Team Holland were on impressive form, showing real potential for their county tournament next term. Anna B and Kyla were outstanding in defence, clearing the ball wide nicely and moving forwards to meet the ball. Sophie was chosen by the opposition as their player of the match – she showed great composure on the ball and helped to set up the team’s only goal. A number of players stepped up and played in Team Holland for the first time all season: Myla, Anna F, Beth, Zara and Ella. Anna F played particularly well in goal, saving several shots from the opposition.
This was a high quality game, between two very similar teams, in which Mount Kelly finished winners 2-1 at full time.
