Report from Cults - 2nd Feb
GCW girls 3rd team arrived at Cults full of smiles, as usual, despite most of them having had a full day of indoor hockey on Saturday in Perth when playing in the Scottish inter-district tournament. The squad for the day was as follows Fay, Abby, Milly, Millie,Sofia, Anna, Lucy Kirsten and we also had Lucy Harris and Molly O'Bryne there playing for Hazlehead 2nds as requested by them to help their numbers. So with a total of 10 girls there the games commenced.
The girls first game was in fact against Hazlehead 2nds and the girls scored within the first minute with a great individual run by Sofia, which always helps get the game off to a good start and they built from there and could have scored every time they attacked scoring a further 4 goals in the first half through great goals by Kirsten, Sarah and Millie S 2. Half-time finished 5-0 to us and a great buzz and anticipation for the second half. The second half started with the same enthusiasm from the girls and it wasn't long until they added to their goal tally, through goals from Sarah, Abby, Milly M 2, Sofia, Anna R 2, and Millie S getting her hat-trick. With Hazlehead scoring twice in the second half the game finished 15 - 2 with another great performance from our girls.
Another - sit up and take notice game for the girls with 15 goals coming from
Sofia - 2
Milly M - 2
Sarah - 2
Anna r - 2
Abby - 1
Kirsten - 1
Millie S - 5
Well done girls and thank you to Sandy for his support.
Game two of the day started at 3pm which was always going to be a difficult one against a much older and experienced team,Aberdeen Ladies 2nds,but the girls are not phased and always play to their strengths. The game remained level until it was half way through the first half before Aberdeen Ladies scored their first goal. The girls found scoring a bit more difficult in this game, not because they were not making chances but because Aberdeen Ladies goalie was having a great game and making things difficult! Aberdeen Ladies added to their score with another goal which was scored from a corner which was initially saved on the line by Fay but a follow up saw the ball cross the line. The girls never lost faith and continued to play very well and their persistence paid off when we scored through Fay and added to our tally when Sofia also scored leaving the game evenly poised at 2-2 half time, which left the two teams with slightly different half time chats. The game continued with Ladies pressurising us, but the the defence stood firm only conceding a couple more goals through corners taking the game to 4-2 before we came back with a goal from Anna, they stretched ahead again taking the score to 6-3 before once again we scored through Kirsten, Ladies scored another goal as the game came to a close - game finished 7-4 which may not have been a win but it was a brilliant performance by our girls once again.
Well done all.
