The first league game of the season finally arrived and it happened to be against our 3rd team who we train closely with every week!
We haven't played together much as a team so far this season and there were also quite a few new faces so there were obvious nerves going into the game but after a good team talk we all started feeling positive and up for the challenge. There was little between the two teams during the first half. The 4s defended well helped by the experienced voice of Summer from the goal who had an excellent last game with the club before she heads off to uni. There were also numerous attacking plays that resulted in a couple of strikes on goal one of which lead to a flick being awarded. Amy bravely stepped up to the mark but unfortunately it wasn't to be and the ball just hit the post.
At half time spirits were high as we had held the 3rd team to a draw in the first half and we went back out after the break with our heads held high ready for another 35 minutes of hockey!
Although we stayed strong as a team the 3s managed to break us down and score two goals in the second half. Despite this not one player ever gave up, we didn't make it easy for the 3s and we played as a team right until the final whistle. Special mentions go to Kitty for a great return back to NCHC hockey and also to our player of the match, Jess, for a fantastic performance in what seemed like every position on the pitch!
A great team performance girls, we look forward to seeing more next week!
