another tough day with players short


Unfortunately the 6s were down from the 11 I thought we had last night to only 8 at the pitch but we called upon the development league rule and had a couple of seniors (thanks Nina!) play a 2nd game. If I had realised we were as short as we were I may have got another one to stay but I had left the house without my phone and been umpiring/coaching for the previous 2 hours....
Thankfully we DID have a GK and Rosie was superb - dear knows what the score would have been without her. We lost a few goals before we found some shape and began dealing with the fact that they had an extra player but has the game progressed we grew into it and actually started creating some chances of our own. Charlotte and Carmen were building down the right and Holly and Zara did a load of running up front. In the 2nd half we forced some corners and managed to get one in from a straight strike. We created some really good chances through nice hockey but just didn't get the final touch. We kept them out for much of the 2nd half too and full credit to everyone for continuing to put in a hard shift for the entire 70 minutes even though we were down. 7-1 in the end but the youngsters gain experience for the future and I really believe this team will be buzzing by the end of the season... Thanks to Marjorie Watson for doing the official duties
