The Junior 6s travelled to Harleston to play Norwich School for their first match of the season – and for some, their first ever hockey match. Although a little nervous, the girls were excited. The team took a few minutes to settle in to the game and understand their positions and job roles, but after 5 minutes, confidence grew which enabled the girls to dribble the ball into space. Our passing was not as strong as the opposition, but the determination was definitely stronger; chasing our opponents to try and gain possession of the ball. Grace and Eleanor worked tirelessly in defence to ensure the opposing attacked did not reach the goal every time they entered their attacking D and midfield players Hannah and Phoebe, chased the ball up and down the pitch, supporting both in defence and attack. Well done to Imogen and Ariana who played in goal for the first time ever and both made some great saves. We were unlucky to go down in the first half 1 – 0, but we managed to keep the score line the same in the second half. Well done to everyone in the team, we look forward to playing RHS away after half term.
