Match Report
Saint Ronan's School U9 Navy vs  Sacred Heart School Wadhurst
On: Thursday, 28 Feb 2019
Venue: at Home

At their first pop lacrosse fixture of the season, the U9 Navy team faced a fast and capable mixed team from Sacred Heart, who had just been narrowly beaten by the Sky team. SH returned to the pitch full of running and were quick on to any ground balls. Our girls were surprised by the speed of the boys’ game and hesitant to block or challenge for the ball. The first half went clearly in SH's favour and the score was 0-7 at half time. A swift change of positions and an encouraging half time chat and the girls played a much better second half, no longer giving SH a free run on goal. Our counter-attack was also more positive. We drew the second half, with each team scoring 3 goals and Oriel M, Jess T and Bea E scoring for StR. There was also much-improved defensive play from Bea E, Alice M and Amelia B - well done, especially for the positive second half, girls! Player of the Match: Bea E
