Match Report
Dean Close Preparatory School 7th VII vs  Cheltenham Ladies' College Girls-U13D
On: Wednesday, 09 Oct 2019
Venue: Away

Unexpectedly, I (Mrs Hunt) found myself accompanying the VIIs to CLC for a three-way tournament, which proved to be a great afternoon of hockey. With four reserves available, changes to the team at half time were made in each short match. Sienna played up front throughout and patiently waited for the ball to be brought to her, before putting it across the line herself on one occasion but better still, looking up and crossing it to Lucy who was well positioned to finish it off for the team. Natalia was strong in midfield and tenacious in her tackles. Lizzie, Bella, Anna and Lucy all held their ground well on the wing, with some tidy roll outs being used at times to pass the opponent. Annabel and Nell worked well together in defence and Genevieve made some fantastic saves and kicked with confidence. A solid win and satisfying draw were good outcomes from the work the girls did today - well done, everyone!
