Match Report
Saint Ronan's School Girls U9 Navy vs  Dulwich Prep Cranbrook
On: Thursday, 24 Jan 2019
Venue: Away

The girls in the Navy squad put up a good fight in their match against DCPS. There were lots of promising moments but we lacked the speed and confidence to move the ball powerfully enough into space for our team mates. In training, we have been doing a lot of practice in triangles, staying and passing wide to stretch the opposition’s defence, but under the pressure of match conditions we reverted to old habits, collapsing the space around the ball and making it very difficult to connect any passes. DCPS were a little more assertive and moved the ball well, outwitting our defence on four occasions. Despite this, the girls gave everything right up until the final whistle and learned a lot from the game. Well done.
