U11 Hockey v Beeston Hall

On a windy Wednesday 28th of November Beeston came to our Astro for a hockey match. I won the toss and chose first push back. We started off well with some solid defending, especially by Emelia who made some excellent saves in goal. However, Beeston managed to get into the D and scored 2 goals. Mabel also scored a goal in the first half from an excellent pass from Orla. In the second half, despite our best effort, Beeston scored another 2 goals. However, in the last few seconds of play, Orla scored an excellent goal from a great pass by Mabel.
My girls of the game are Eden and Emelia for their excellent saves. Well done girls.

Under 13 Girls’ Hockey triangular against St Hugh’s and Wellow House

On Wednesday 28th November Glebe travelled to St Hugh’s for two hockey matches.
Our first game was against Wellow House and we started rather slowly. The games were 12 ½ minutes each way and half time came and we had failed to score. After an encouragingly critical team talk we started the second half with more purpose and moved the ball better. We scored two goals and ended up comfortable winners.
The weather was getting worse so we played a shortened game against St Hughs. This was a much close game and we battled well, taking the lead in the first half. St Hughs pressed forward and scored a good equaliser to leave the score 1-1.
My girl of the games was Livi, as she played an unfamiliar role in midfield and did really well.


Friday, 30th November

The under 9 hockey team travelled to Greshams to play a triangular tournament against Wisbech and Greshams.

The first game was against Wisbech. In the first half, Tabby scored a goal from a free hit, which she took very quickly. Then soon after Tabby scored another goal. At half time it was 2 nil.
In the second half we came back quickly with Orla scoring another goal, then another!
We were so good in attack that I didn’t have to make any saves!
The final score was 4 nil to us. We were the strongest team but we need to pass more to our team mates, rather than just dribbling.

The second match was against Greshams.
Greshams quickly scored. We came back strongly and Orla scored us a goal, thanks to some good teamwork from everyone. The final score was 1 all. We need to space out more and use the whole width of the pitch.

My girl of the game is Orla for getting some great goals, but the whole team played really well.
