Match report:

U19A vs REDDAM U19A

Score: 2-0

Scorers: Francesca Palmieri and Hannah Schaefer

This was a game in which we dominated with respect to ball possession and attacking circle entries, resulting in earning 11 penalty corners. We scored two field goals through Francesca and Hannah but showed that we need to capitalize more on our penalty corner advantage. We are getting better at playing sensible hockey down the sides of the field but still tend to run with it too much, getting dispossessed in the mid-field. A good result that helps in building team confidence which will put us in good stead going forward into the season – Coach Andi.
