On a beautiful autumn day a group of 10 U9 girls travelled to Scarborough College to play their first game of the season. With a very quick warm up and a quick refresh of the rules the girls were keen to get going. The game started with great pace and they were all tracking the ball hard and trying to tackle the oppositions but this meant we started to bunch up in the middle and gave the ball away for feet, stick tackling and unfortunately in the excitement tackling our own team mate. But, with a slight rejig by myself and the Scarborough teacher we were off again and this time trying hard to keep wide. This space meant the ball was now moving more freely with Lucy, Elspeth and Mollie making some super dribbles and passes up to the D. Our attacking game was strong with Elspeth and Isla having near misses but fortunately Daisy managed to score just before half time. After a team talk and new focus of marking the opposition and looking up when we had the ball we were keen to keep our lead and perhaps even try to extend it. Sophia, Edie and Hannah were brilliant in defence and made sure they went to meet the player with the ball which helped keep Scarborough out of our D. This wonderful team work was then backed up by super midfield play by Imogen and Tilly who made good passes up the field to Elspeth and Daisy who were darting around and waiting to strike. Strike we did again with Daisy getting her second of the game and with that the final whistle went.

For the first game of the season the girls all played superbyly enjoying their opportunity to represent the school in such an excellent manner. I must however take time to mention Isla Davies, who captain the team with confidence and set such a good example to her peers, encouraging all those around her and also to my player of the match Hannah Tench who kept a super line of defence and sent many wonderfuly long balls and excellent long corner hits/passes to her waiting team mates.
