Under 11 Hockey triangular
On Wednesday we travelled to St Hughs to play a triangular. Our first
match was against Burton Hathow and although we were fairly switched on
and scored an early goal (Jonny), they equalised just before the end of
the half. In the second half, I am not quite sure what happened, but we
were we obviously not alert and they took advantage scoring another 5
goals. The final score was 6-1. Next we played the hosts St Hughs and
urged on by Mr Turner’s team talk we were a lot more committed all
around the field so this was a much closer fought game. St Hughs scored
1 goal in each half and we scored 1 (Theo). Although a loss it was a
much better game for us and Mr Turner was a bit happier with our
performance. We really must all concentrate from the first whistle to
the last as this has been our downfall so far this season. I would award
man of the match to Theo for scoring a goal and for a good amount of
energy in both matches.
Under 11 Hockey v Beeston
On 30th January, Beeston sent their A team to Glebe on a cold afternoon.
We knew it would be a tough one as two of our players were off sick and
Beeston are always a top opposition. In the first half we were not
really switched on particularly in the midfield which meant we didn’t
commit. They on the other hand were switched on, and their commitment
and skills allowed them to score 5 goals to our 1. After an encouraging
but firm team talk when Mr Turner reminded us to keep our sticks down we
entered the second half. We all played a lot better and Ferdie scored
our second and third goals which was an improvement. They however scored
another 3 so the final score was 8-3. We played well but next time we
need to work on being switched on from the first whistle and really take
the game to the opposition. Ferdie was man of the match for his 3 goals
and the energy he brought to the match.
U11 Hockey v Langley
The U11 boys travelled to Langley for the first hockey match of the
season. We were all excited . Giovanni who had never played hockey in
his life was in goal and did a great job! In the first half we weren’t
really switched on and allowed them to score a goal. Poor old Archie had
to to go off for a while when his head got in the way of a stick.
Giovanni made a couple of amazing saves and the first half finished 1-0
to Langley. At half time Mr Turner gave us an encouraging team talk and
told us to be less passive and attack more. We started the second half
with hope in our hearts that if we got a wiggle on we could still save
the match. After a few close calls Will finally scored and so he was
rightly awarded man of the match. The match finished as a one all draw.
A good start to the season. Well done team. P.S Archie’s head is OK!
U11 Netball v St Hugh’s
On Wednesday the 6th of February Glebe under 11 girls travelled to St Hugh’s to play a netball match.
We started well getting the ball into our third and scoring, but St Hugh’s quickly scored 3 goals. We scored again making the score 3-2 to them.
In the second quarter we pushed hard and Annabel scored another goal and we only let St Hugh’s score 1.
After a quick team talk from Miss Donpon we started the second half. We were losing focus and let St Hugh’s score a further 3 goals and ended the match 7-3 to them.
My man of the match is Annabel for scoring our 3 goals and all round amazing play. Well done team.
U13 Netball v Town Close
On Wednesday the 6th of February, Glebe U13 girls travelled to Town Close for a netball match. We lost the toss and they took first centre pass. We started off the match really well with some good passing and determination, but unfortunately they were a very strong team and were very quick. The score at the end of the first quarter was 6-1 to them. In the second quarter we continued to work hard and tried to intercept the ball, but they did some good passes and managed to score 7 more goals, making the half time score 13 – 1 to them. In the third quarter we continued to work hard and managed to score another goal. Town Close scored 5 more. We had to cut the final quarter short because of some injuries so the final score was 18 – 2. My ‘Man of the Match’ was Elise for getting into space and dodging.
Well played team.
