Match Report
Saint Ronan's School U8 Sky vs  Sacred Heart School Wadhurst
On: Thursday, 28 Feb 2019
Venue: at Home

The girls opened their season with an unusual game against a team of boys. The athleticism, power, speed and agility of the boys’ game presented our girls with an exciting challenge over the course of the afternoon. We were a little overwhelmed as the game began, allowing SH far too much time and space to pick up the ball and move up the pitch. A succession of early goals gave us the wake-up call we needed and finally our game started to unfold and take shape. We became more assertive, chasing and challenging every ball, the girls winning the pickup on many occasions through pure determination. We were rewarded with 4 fine goals (Bea M 2, Jemima P 1, supported by Florence T). Lily S, Micaela M and Carlotta MvdK did a fine job of blocking any SH attacks and Tilly TY made an excellent contribution as Centre. Overall, a great team effort against a feisty and athletic all boys opposition. We can take pride in our performance and we learned much in the process. Well done.
