U14 Girls Hockey v Convent of the Sacred Heart, Hockey District League Match. Last Wednesday, our U14 girls hockey team started their Marshland Pink Ladies hockey careers, playing their first ever match against a very strong Convent team, who are habitually one of the teams to beat.
A very fast paced match saw the first 10 minutes literally end to end. Captain Emile Raichelyte then forced our first short corner of the evening. Helena Wadlow smashed the ball out and Georgia Snape got her shot in, but it was charged down by their captain (and one of their Norfolk County players). The break was on. Our girls, the entire team, worked hard to get back and defend against the Convent onslaught. Fantastic work by Erin Campbell slowed them up a little, but they kept flooding forward. Agata Rataj and Jess Slack, sprinting as hard as they could, could not prevent another County Convent player from weaving in and out of our defenders, but Tegan Eggleton channelled her wide. Convent’s cross was immaculate, finding their centre forward in the shooting circle, a tackle by Phoebe Porter did little to put Convent’s tricky forward off.
