U 11 vs Loretto

This was the first match of the season for us and for more than half the team, their first match ever!  We where up against a very experienced team so it was always going to be a bit of a baptism of fire. The team had a bit of a shaky start as they felt their way around the pitch and built up the team work. Alexandra P did well to follow coaching and did a great job of being always up front to revive the ball. In defence Tally M really stood her ground and was the player to get pass. Naomi T also did well in her first time as a defender.  But the real workers of the team were Isla F, and first timers Daisy M and Willa G. They really fought for every ball and gave it their all. I was very impressed by their comment and determination. They made real progress in the second half and showed some great teamwork, using the side lines to advance the ball up the pitch. There is still much to learn and progress to make but it is upwards and onwards from here!
