Match Report
Saint Ronan's School Girls U11A vs  Marlborough House School
On: Wednesday, 07 Nov 2018
Venue: Away

The girls started well and were trying to play the ball to each other using short balls and moving into space. Lizzie H, up front, made sideways moves to pull the defence, giving space and options to the others. However we have not had to defend seriously for some time and forgot that Ruby A needs some help occasionally. Ruby was not able to keep a powerful MHS attack at bay and they drilled the ball past Cordelia E in goal. We kept our heads and Kitty H and Rachel B interchanged, passing well on the left and then linking with Lizzie H. We had the ball in the D but were not able to get clear shots at goal. Millie DH and Ruby M tried to thread the ball down the right side but ran out of room. MHS had another couple of breakaways and again scored from both. We were unlucky not to score: Lizzie H had a shot at goal, which was saved by the goalie coming off her line, and Rachel B had strong hits from corners blocked. A gutsy effort, girls. Well done.
