1st Xl v OWBA

Score – WBS 1st Xl Won 2-0       
Scorer – Beth Keech (Yr 11)

Beautiful blue skies and radiant sunshine welcomed the ‘Old Girls’ back to their familiar stomping ground on Speech Day this year. Much was made of this enticing battle as many of the OWBA team consisted of a number of our talented leavers from the summer of 2013; players from our most successful 1st Xl ever included, Izzy Moore, Molly McKinnel, Verity Marsterson and Charlotte Woodman. The rest of the OWBA were no slouches either with the likes of Katie May, Alice Lancaster, Diana Webber, Jess Ravenhill-White, Tabby Fox and, a real ‘golden oldie’, Charlotte Knight fancying their chances!!

As usual, fitness played a big part in the end result – or lack thereof, in the case of the OWBA!! Despite this, the match was played with a good deal of intensity, competitive spirit and humour.

Unfortunately for the visitors, however, the WB 1st Xl were on a mission to prove themselves as the new kids on the block, after a difficult loss in their early warm-up game against Exeter School the previous Saturday. Their communication and two-touch work in the midfield certainly kept the old girls on their toes and, notwithstanding some flashes of superb flare from the veterans, the 1st Xl’s teamwork and bonding enabled them to set up some very slick attacking moves for newcomer Beth Keech to successfully convert on two occasions.

Better luck next time OWBA!
