Team and Opponent: U13 Hockey v Sherfield
Result: A Team drew B team lost
Most Valuable Players: Venisita, Caitlin, Daisy, Grace
Travelling to Sherfield, a challenge was certainly ahead on their brand new astro, which would prove to provide a slower surface than we were used to. Playing 7-a-side matches on a half pitch was great and allowed every player a full match and plenty of space. There were many positives to take from both A and B matches, and as we develop to having GKs too, there is no doubt this will have huge positive influence in the future. Well done to all fourteen players and particularly those selected as the opposition’s MVP and Coach’s MVP this week.
Goals scored by: Amelia (2) Ramona (1) Cadence (1)
Man of the Match: Cadence & Ramona
Report: The U11 girls played 5 aside against Churchers. They demonstrated excellent control of the ball and passing across the pitch. Cadence and Imogen displayed some excellent skills throughout the game using the reverse stick to control more difficult passes. Imogen and Melody worked as a great team in defence and continuously performed accurate tackling and clearing of the ball. Izzy played superbly in mid field, switching between attack and defence effortlessly. Amelia remained disciplined in attack to ensure she was in effective space to receive the pass and finished with scoring two goals. Ramona and Izzy worked tirelessly in attack to both score a goal, Ramona having several attempts and never giving up.
Team: U11 Lions and Tigers
Score: Lions Lost & Tigers Lost
Report: U11 Lions all played very well and are progressing with every match. However, a very strong Churchers team showed them how far they have to go and what hard work in training can produce.
U11 Tigers played an outstanding match. They started the game with real power and determination and scored a couple of tries without reply. The passing and link up play was a real highlight for Mr C and it showed just how hard the boys have been training. Unfortunately, the team were unable to maintain this high tempo game and although they stayed in the match they lost in last minute. A great performance and they should all be very proud.
Man of the Match: Radoslav, for dominant running with the ball and putting 100% effort in to his tackling.
The U11 Tigers came up against a strong Churchers side this week, but they were undaunted with the team quickly putting on several tries from Yohan and Radoslav. Boundary Oak went in to half time 3 tries to 1. Boundary Oak completely rucked Churchers off the ball and were able to turnover the ball on multiple occasions. However Churchers number of players and their fitness allowed them to continue to attack BO’s defence after we started to tire. This lead to several tries being scored against us in the dying phases of the game. However a massive effort from all involved as the team continues to grow in its confidence and ability.
