Results from today at Durham with the U13 girls. Highly competitive finish to the season across both leagues.
A team started with a late winner against North A coming away 2-1 winners. Came back from an early goal down to draw 1-1 with Northumberland B although missed a good few other opportunities to win. Lost 3-1 to West applying alot of pressure in the second half to pull back a goal after going down 2 in the First half. Good sustained pressure chasing an equaliser with good saves from Wests keeper and other chances going wide, only to see a third against on a quick break. Final match against Northumberland A finished with a resolute battle and good focus on ball retention as a team to pull a goal back although the damage had already been with being down 3 at this time. Finished with a 4-1 loss, but kept at the task. Not as fluid as last time, opposition all very much on it today. Fantastic hockey all around with quality keeping.
The B team had a decent day, pulling together, showing good development from both individual and team aspects. Starting with a difficult match v North B starting with a respectable effort to keep the score to 5-0, 8 last time. Second game saw the girls putting up a sterling effort against West B, taking the opportunity to score themselves in a match that although lost 5-1, did not fully reflect the play with plenty of our own attacking play. This carried forward into a tense battle with Humber and a better outcome keeping the score to a 0-0 draw. Finishing off with a positive match against Durham A, going 2 up before being pulled back to a 2 all draw. Big changes from all in this section of the squad, their confidence in their abilities has started to show and the outcome from both a team point and individual has been very positive. Well done all, excellent development from all across the season. A big thankyou to James D and Ollie B for doing a sterling job with the umpiring.
