On 16th September 2010 our under 16 girls hockey team played St Margaret’s.
We started the match very brightly, forcing several fine saves from the St Margaret’s goalkeeper. Captain Georgia Price was particularly dominant during the opening phases demonstrating good ball control and a fierce determination to win.
As the half progressed St Margaret’s started to come into the game more, forcing fine saves from debutant goalkeeper Soraya Babolhavaeji. St Margaret’s managed to score two late goals to enter half time with a two goal lead.
During the second half, fatigue set into the St Wilfrid’s team and they conceded five goals. Freya Steggall introduced some drive from her role as substitute but unfortunately this was not enough to stem the waves of attacks from St Margaret’s.
With more practice and better fitness levels there is no reason St Wilfrid’s cannot compete on equal terms with St Margaret’s. Remember you achieve excellence through practice!!
