Match Report
Saint Ronan's School Girls-U9 Sky vs  Vinehall School
On: Thursday, 08 Nov 2018
Venue: at Home

Following an extended warm up session, due to Vinehall's late arrival, the Sky team put in a much-improved performance on Thursday. The whole team displayed enthusiasm, energy and commitment from the start. As a result, throughout much of the first and second quarters, the ball remained in our attacking half. However a combination of Vinehall's GD and GK (who both marked tenaciously) and the bright sunshine made it difficult for our shooters to convert possession advantage into goals. Following a number of attempts from both shooters, Alice M scored in both Q1 and Q2, putting us 2-0 ahead at half time. Mid-court play continued to be fast and, when the girls remembered to hold their space, most impressive. Any sideline pass (to our advantage) allowed the girls to re-position and create much-needed space. Mischa W worked hard at C and Athena M showed excellent game awareness at WA. Once again, Michelle VDB defended splendidly at GD. With the sun behind us in Qs 3 and 4, Issy A scored 3 lovely goals and the game finished with a well-deserved win for the Sky team. Well done, team Sky! Player of the Match: Athena M
