On Sunday 12th, Thunder went to Surbiton Hockey Club to play the first tournament of the new year! What a great time we all had. The girls are looking stronger and all those Friday training sessions are paying off!
We came 1st on our group, having played 3 Surbiton teams. The first match saw as losing narrowly 0-1 but we went to win the second game 2-0 and 1-0 the last match (could have been more as we had a few narrow misses).
We played 3 more matches to another two Surbiton teams . We lost the first one with an early goal and we won the second one 1-0, playing the last match against our fellow Guildford team Hurricane and we won 1-0.
Overall the girls were fantastic. We had no subs due to last minute cancellations, so it meant the girls needed to work harder, but they did brilliantly, supporting each other and putting some much effort. I was so pleased to see the girls playing as a team, building up to the score area by passing the ball and playing widely creating space.
Chloe, Freya and Jessica worked really well at the front, passing the ball to each other and positioning themselves in the right place.
Sadie and Esme were running up and down covering the sides and attacking as well as defending constantly doing an amazing job.
Maya and Flora were very solid at the back, driving the opposition away from our D. Flora did very well in distributing the ball to her team players as well as running back to defend when the opposition broke.
Well done girls! I really enjoyed seeing the smile on your faces after the matches. It looked like you had a lot of fun and so did I!
Team: Freya, Esme, Flora, Chloe, Jessica, Maya & Sadie.
