Under 13 Hockey vs Langley

On Wednesday 9th November the Under 13 girls had a hockey match against Langley @ Taverham . It was a windy, wet day and we started slowly. After some pressure from Langley we eventually got the ball into their half but they were the first to score. We pulled a goal back after a good passing move between Elise, Alice and Daisy. The score was 1-1 at half-time. We started with more conviction in the second half and quickly took a two goal lead. We ran out 4-1 winners with Daisy scoring three times and Alice once. Every one played their part, with Kitty outstanding in goal. All the subs made an impression, with Lily really showing an improvement in her defending. The girl of the match was Kitty for great goalkeeping.

We were all very excited about playing in our very first tag rugby tournament. We played five matches, drawing two and losing three. Matthew played very well and scored lots of tries and William was good at tagging people. Alfy, George Lantos and Angus from Div. II played very well in their first ever school matches. I think that our team was amazing and I can’t wait to play another match. Well done team!

Wednesday, 7th November

They scored straight away but then we came back and at half-time it was three tries each. Jacob and Stanley both scored a great try and I managed to get four. We ended up winning a very close match by six tries to five.

My man of the match is Joshua for a great performance in his first Under 9 match. We do need to concentrate more but apart from that we played a great match. Well done team!

We played five seven a-side matches, drawing two and losing three. No positions were recorded. Our first match was against Town Close which we narrowly lost by four tries to three.

We then played a strong Town Close 1 team, losing by five tries to one.

Our third was against Langley 3. Our tackling started to improve in this game and it ended in a three all draw.

Our fourth match was against Gresham’s. I would like to mention Benjy and Sammy for some try saving tackles in this match. I scored three but unfortunately we lost by five tries to three.

Our final match was against Norwich Maroons. Benjy scored a superb try in this game. We drew this match four all.

I scored 8 tries in all, Benjy scored three and Freddie Hawkins, Matthew, Jacob and Stanley each scored one. My men of the tournament were Benjy and Sammy for a great all-round performance. Well done team!
