Report by Ms Bird 

Playing in the glorious sunshine the Year 7’s started off slightly rocky after the Easter holidays! As the match progressed however they found their feet and were making good progress and some great interceptions. Half time showed the score as 3 - 0 to Waldegrave and the girls were good at encouraging each other and talking tactics at half time.

The second half showed some much better play with great forward drives and better planned passes to ensure the ball got down to the attacking end. The shooters worked well, even though blinded by the glorious sunshine, and started to pull back the score. Unfortunately Waldegrave had the upper hand and came back fighting in the second half, winning the game 6 - 2.

Team: Betty, Maddy, Eleanor, Mercedes H, Caitlin, Hazel and Ola.

Player of the Match: Hazel
