U9B Girls Hockey v Pennthorpe U9B

Score: Lost 4 – 0

Players Player – Francesca
Lady of the Match – Victoria

Pennthorpe were only able to bring one team on Thursday afternoon. The A team played first, 2 halves of 8 minutes. It took the team about 4 minutes to get into the match. It was a very attacking game, with lots of possession and shots in the D. They tried hard as a team and showed a Positive approach throughout.

The Bs then had a tougher challenge against the same Pennthorpe team, again it took a few minutes to warm up into the game and by this time Pennthorpe had scored a couple of goals. The girls showed good determination to limit Pennthorpes possession and some excellent defending, despite the final score being 4-0.

Under 8A Girls’ Hockey v Pennthorpe
Drew 1-1

Lady of the match: Libby Bald

The girls worked incredibly hard today in a very well matched game against Pennthorpe. The girls dominated the first half, with some fantastic block tackling seen from our defence; Annie and Anya certainly earnt their place in the team thanks to their perseverance and determination to win the ball. Libby showed some lovely ball carrying skills as she took on a number of Pennthorpe girls with great success, managing to use her reverse stick at times too. Libby’s hard work was rewarded in the first half with a lovely goal to give us the lead. The second half saw Pennthorpe fighting back; they tackled well and had some lovely chances on goal. Thankfully we managed to clear these shots well to retain the lead. Amelia, Poppy, Tilly, Freya and Ella also worked hard here to gain possession and our passing improved over the game. Unfortunately Pennthorpe had a breakthrough in the dying minutes which followed in a goal to equalise.
Well done girls on a good game today.

U9B’s hockey v Feltonfleet
Score: Amesbury 4 v 0 Feltonfleet
The opening game of the hockey season was a great success. Having had a couple of weeks of training the boys were quick out the blocks with a relentless attack. With a solid base at the back Feltonfleet had little views of the Amesbury goal. The midfield and centre forward combined beautifully and regularly caused havoc in the opposition D. With a two- nil lead by half time the boys were in the driving seat. The second half was much the same with improvements in the wide attacking game. A superb performance by all the boys and a positive start to the season.

Under 8B Girls Hockey
Amesbury v Penthorpe
Score: 1-3
Lady of the match: Honor and Ottilie

The U8B team had a great game today! They played inside today, a first for the team against Penthorpe. It was a good experience for Amesbury as the ball was able to be played off the walls which was certainly different and it took us a bit of time to adjust to this type of play. We conceded two first half goals but our tackling was stronger in the 2nd half and both the teams scored a goal in this period. We used the pitch and wall space well in defence and scored a great goal. Our passing is improving week on week and the girls are certainly determined and were tenacious in today’s game as they never gave up. Great work girls!

U8b’s hockey vs Feltonfleet
On a lovely Thursday afternoon away at Feltonfleet, the U8b’s had a thrilling match. It’s started with waves of attacking play from Feltonfleet resulting in us going 1-0 down, but we bounced back with two quick goals from Felix, we lead at half time. After the break Feltonfleet fought back with a quick goal making it 2-2. But the U8b’s cruised to a 4-2 victory with Felix completing his hat trick. In a game showered by goals, it’s was there stellar defensive work that lead to a great victory.
