3rd match of the season for the White team
By Cengiz Ilhan
Need to improve!
We had 14 players, with three players from the young U15s joining us (Sophie H, Ana G and Mia B).
Today, we were not hungry and were generally very sloppy with our ball handling skills. I think this is what the girls were saying too. Why? We need to find the answer to this. First half we were 5 - 1 down. During the first half, we had a time out at 4 - 0 and the girls knew what was not happening and what they needed to do, and they executed this after the time out. I think this was the best spel of the game for us.
Second half, we lost 6 - 3 with the final score 11 - 4 for Stockport. At times we played some lovely Lacrosse but not sufficient and consistent enough to win the game.
We need to put this game behind us and all know what we need to work on which we already do at trainings (catching and throwing skills). Also I will speak to Gary and Jo and ensure during training the White team gets time to train together.
Man of the match: Nina Ilhan - some great saves and good launches of the ball further up our half
Defence: Talia Baird - stuck to her task of men (girl) marking
Midfield: Ana Gree - worked hard and determined
Attack: Sophie Hurlstone - held the ball well up front and good passes
Best goal (new category), from Libby Morris. Got a ground ball in our half and dodged number of players and went on to shoot and score!
Scores and assist.
