Match Report
Dean Close Preparatory School Girls-U8 Green vs  Berkhampstead School
On: Wednesday, 09 Oct 2019
Venue: at Home

Wow! These girls have improved so much in a week. There was some really impressive hockey today. Willow tackled and stopped the ball strongly; Chloe was solid in stopping and passing the ball when it came her way; Alice was sound in defence and then pushed forward hard in attack, chasing everything; Martha and Bethany really got ‘stuck in’ and understood the game much more; Ellie hit the ball really powerfully; and Emily and Beth used a ‘roll out’ so effectively to move away from opponents and into space. We were unfortunate not to score more, in the second half especially, but despite numerous attacks Berkhampstead’s tactic of having 3 players on the goal line made it difficult to get the ball through. Well done, girls - you are proving to be a joy to teach as you are improving with every minute you play!
