It was an encouraging start to the season for The Abbey girls’ hockey teams away at Littlegarth.
The A Team were two goals down in the second half and then with ten minutes left to play they suddenly improved their structure, fought hard and went on to score 2 goals. Littlegarth responded with another attack but The Abbey team defended well and turned the game round with their third goal being scored in the last two minutes of the game. A tremendous team performance, great start to the season and encouraging to see a fantastic comeback, whilst under pressure.
At half time the C team were 1 – 0 up. They dominated the first half and were unlucky not to score more goals. In the second half they kept the lead right up until the last few minutes when Littlegarth managed to score. The final score was 1 – 1.
The B and D Teams had a lot of possession, but were unable to hit the ball past the GK. Both teams worked hard and their positioning improved. An area for improvement is to hit the ball harder.
