OWBA Girls Hockey 2014

9 Oct 2014

Girls' Hockey

The hockey match between the WBS 1st Xl and the OWBA was a heated affair. Yes, we had balmy conditions and the searing heat  certainly highlighted the old girl’s lack of match fitness (!); however, the high level of competitiveness also led to some feisty (tongue in cheek) verbal exchanges between players and umpires.

It really was a great game played with a friendly but intense atmosphere. The WBS girls dominated throughout most of the first half and were left frustrated when they missed a few good chances to score. Izzy Moore (00-13 G) finally broke the deadlock and took the old girls to 1-0, much to the delight of her team! Very quickly, however, the 1st Xl equalised with a good goal from Beth Keech. The play continued at a fast paced, end to end battle and then the 1st Xl took the lead with a goal scored from short corner scuffle in the ‘D’.

Despite both sides tiring in the last few minutes of the game, the intensity grew and culminated in a sneaky goal from Susie Hill (00-10 G) in the last 6 seconds!!!!

OWBA Team: Emma Moss (04-11 F), Susie Hill (00-10 G), Issy Cairns (05- 14 C), Georgia Cope (04-14 G), Jaz Brent (07-14 F), Catherine Mitcham (00-14 B), Sophy Crane (98-13 B), Molly McKinnel (05-13 G), Izzy Wilson-North (08-13 G), Lindsey Denyer (05-10 F), Issy Moore (00-13 G), Poppy Henson (06-13 F), Georgie Markham (00-13 F), Lara Martin (04-13 F), Beth Woollacott (07-14 B)
