A Weekend Win for Woodbridge Against Wymondham and Ipswich

7 Oct 22

Our hockey 2nd team played against Wymondham on Saturday 1 October, playing superbly and winning the match.  Our match report has more details of the game, players and the score. 

Woodbridge 2nd vs Wymondham – Match report: Mr Brous 

For the first match of the season the team played superbly.  On a warm Saturday afternoon we took on the Wymondham team.  We controlled most of the first half but really struggled to find the goal, shot after shot was saved or shots missed their target.  We were a little slow at recovering in the mid-field to start, but the back four of Year 11’s Lola, Rosie, Violetta and Charlotte ensured that nothing got past them.  Backed up by some superb keeping from Year 12’s Kitt our draw was at least secure at the end of the first half.   It was in the second half that we really got going.  The team upped their work rate and defensibly were superb.  This gave us the platform to launch counter attacks, which we did at superb pace.  As a result we got three quick goals, two from Year 13’s Iris and one from Year 11’s Violet.  Some great saves from Year 11’s Freya  at the end helped keep the oppositions scoresheet blank.  Player of the match was Year 11’s Charlotte  for her superb defensive work and control of the centre of the pitch.  All in all I was impressed by the team’s efforts, their work rate and their eagerness and determination to keep working hard throughout the match.  Well done team, a 3-0 win.  

Our U14A team also played Wymondham as well as Ipswich School last week, winning both matches and celebrating some great play.  Match reports from Mrs Johnson below. 

Woodbridge U14A vs Wymondham  – Match report Mrs Johnson 

Making the journey to Wymondham on a Saturday afternoon totally worthwhile were the Year 9 U14As who played some excellent hockey as a team to come home victors.  With some stellar defending (meaning that our goalie Freya didn’t actually touch the ball all first half!) from Millie, Lyrah and Liya, and great midfield wizardry from Charlie, Margot, Ellie, Lily McK and Valentina, we were ahead at half time by four goals.  These were scored by Bea who then went on to score a 6th in the final minutes of the game.  Eloise, Bea, Scarlett and Lily F were all putting pressure on the Wymondham goalie and played brilliantly supporting the mid-field and making good leads up the pitch.  A great goal from Lily McK and performance from all, well done!  Final score, Woodbridge won 6-0.

This was another great team performance by our Year 9s, illustrating leadership, support, tactics and hard work which culminated in four goals being scored before half time.  The first goal was scored within a minute – a ‘Champagne goal’ which came from a fantastic ball from Meda into the D with Charlie getting on the end of it.  The other goals were scored by Bea, Scarlett and Aurelia.  We started the second half with a few people on the bench due to injury, but we passed the ball fantastically, and supported the play well up the pitch.  Lily F snuck in to score a great goal in the last five minutes and her smile summed up the afternoon – amazing!  Final score, Woodbridge won 5-0.
