Result: Win 4-1
The Junior 2 hockey team played a highly competitive match against RHS. Woodbridge came out on top winning 4-1. The first half was end to end with both teams having opportunities to score. Beth Turner was up to the test in goal when RHS broke through, making numerous important saves during the match. Lack of composure in the circle from Woodbridge meant that the score remained at 0-0 at half time.
During the second half Woodbridge managed to transfer play more effectively, creating more space and moving the RHS defence. This very quickly resulted in more scoring opportunities. Captain Emily Buchanen was rewarded for her work up and down the pitch when she shot from the left for the ball to sneak into the far corner of the goal to open the scoring.
Katherine Bye made a welcome return to the team after injury, starting off in her usual defensive position. In the second half she tested the waters up front and what a revelation she turned out to be. She controlled possession that came her way, passing the ball and repositioning. Katherine scored a hat-trick in 10 minutes calmly finishing passes into her in the D!
Charlotte Dinwiddy and Sarah Barker had very good performances in defence, making important tackles and marking very well. Charlotte provided a player of the match performance, showing good decision making, distribution and making crucial tackles and interceptions.
