The Woodbridge team was up and running from the word go, putting pressure on the ball right from the push back to win a short corner in the first few minutes. Clara injected the ball to Molly who drag flicked it into the bottom left hand corner: what a start! The play went on nicely with Woodbridge passing the ball round the back three of Ariane, Eleanor and Olivia B, waiting for a gap to appear. We eventually attacked down the right-hand channel with Cecily cutting inside to win a short corner which she herself converted through the goalie’s legs. The forwards of Emily W, Emily O, Julia and Ashleigh made some beautiful arching leads for the midfield to target, and soon earned another penalty corner. Clara to Molly as before, but this time she slipped it to Ella to score. But New Hall riposted with two quick goals from breakaways.... all still to play for. The second half started with a new-found energy: the midfield of Clara, Cecily, Ruby and Molly used width brilliantly to create a gap for Clara to drive into the D: 4-2! The defenders held firm, and, with confidence growing, the team tried the new half court press we’d practised at training. We won another penalty corner and Molly Mscored again from the top of the C. Thanks also to the Year 9s of Ella S, Ella P and Maddy who played extremely well a year up. The nominations for man of the match were Eleanor, Molly, Clara and Cecily and it was narrowly won by Molly. It was fantastic game that showcased our whole team's talents.
