HOCKEY MATCH REPORT – WOODBRIDGE SCHOOL VS IPSWICH HIGH

5 Dec 18
Molly takes up the story: As our last game of the season we decided to try lots of new things that we had practised in our games sessions and hockey practices. We started slow lowering ourselves to their level and not playing our usual fluid style. However, after winning a flurry of short corners we eventually put one away with Clara injecting to Molly who passed it out to the right to Ella who passed it back to Molly who put it away from the penalty spot. After this our game play improved as we set the press better and won the ball higher up giving us lots of attacking chances. Another goal followed as Ella shot from the top of the D and Clara deflected it in from close range. We continued in attacking form from half time winning a short corner quickly after the restart. Clara injected it out to Molly who passed to Ella who was free on the left who slapped (yeeted) it into the bottom right hand corner. We then reverted to an attacking half court press which meant Ipswich High could barely enter our half which led to more attacking chances: Clara and Ella had some beautiful play up the right with lots of 1-2s which eventually resulting in Ella flicking it into the back of the net to make it 4-0. We then subbed our goalie Lakisha off to have a kicking back as an experiment which allowed us to retain the ball better and have more players to pass and transfer between the defenders Myla, Olivia and Ariane. This allowed us to work our way up the pitch and win a long corner which was quickly taken by Molly catching them off guard who eventually slotted it into the bottom corner. This meant we finished the season on a high with a 5-0 win to cap off a brilliant and enjoyable season.
