On Saturday September 22. a Year 6A Squad attended their first match and tournament of the season at Godstowe. This is always an excellent early test, with strong schools taking part.
First up was The Manor and our girls started strongly from the minute the whistle blew. There was some excellent defensive play and the girls took their shooting opportunities well, winning the first game 2-0. This gave them confidence to carry on playing in the same manner, with two excellent results: a win last year’s tournament winners, Yateley Manor, 9-0, and then a fabulous 10-0 win over Maltman’s Green. Both shooters were in superb form.
Next up was Berkhamsted, a strong team to beat. It was very close with good play from both teams but High March just pipped Berkhamsted to a 4-3 win. The girls continued their winning streak with a 7-1 win over Godstowe Bs. Finally, the decider to win the tournament was a match against the Godstowe A team. The match was very close and exciting, but Godstowe just managed to beat High March 5-3 in the end.
Godstowe won the tournament with 26 points and High March was a very close runner- up with 25 points.
Well done, girls! A great start to the season.
