MoM: Chloe Plumb

DoD: Dom Masters

Game number 9 of the season and our last attempt to finish the year on a high. We did just that! The team played 4 amazing quarters of hockey, a goal we had been striving for all season to finish with a fantastic 6-0 win against Harleston Magpies.

The first goal of the game came from a beautiful defensive corner counter attack, starting with a solid save by Becca Smith which was swiftly scooped up by Mel Clewlow and sent out to Ella Jain who found Alice Brett down the line. Alice passed the ball beautifully down to Lizzie Jenkins who then attacked the circle and fed the ball to Dom Masters to slot it past the keeper. A real team goal!

The second quarter saw the Canterbury side continue to pile on the pressure in the attacking end. Chloe Plumb showing composure in the circle and sneakily getting one past the keeper. Dom Masters got a second off a corner fed by Mel Clewlow.

The half time talk was all about keeping focus and composure, and not allowing Magpies to get back in to the game. Although we knew we would be alright because we had luck on our side thanks to a bird pooping on Nicki and Lauren Martin’s shoulder!

A beautiful one time shot from Alice fed from Lizzie Neal in the 3rd quarter saw us to 4-0 up going in to the last quarter.

The final quarter finished with a couple of sweet finishes. Lara finished the scoring off with a sweet deflection in to the net from a solid feed from Kirsty Greaves, and finally Lizzie Jenkins attacking the right hand baseline, deceiving the keeper and sending one past her.

A full team performance from everyone made sweeter with the support of everyone on the sidelines. We finish this half of the season with our 4th win in a row, taking us to 5 wins overall, and finishing 4th in the league in the run up to Christmas. It seems a shame to have 10 weeks off but you best believe we will come back ready to rock the second half of the season!

Squad: Mel Clewlow, Lucy Barnes, Ella Jain, Madi Upton, Lizzie Neal, Lara Wilkinson, Kirsty Greaves, Lauren Martin, Alice Brett, Flora Brett, Lizzie Jenkins, Chloe Plumb, Becca Smith, Dom Masters
