U12 Hockey V Kings Rochester (a)

On Wednesday 25th September the year 7 girls hockey team played their first competitive match against Kings Rochester. The girls started nervously but confidence grew quickly as they settled into the game and successful passes were made.  Much of the play was down the centre of the pitch but at half time CCGS were unlucky not to be in front. After a quick team talk the girls went into the second half with ever increasing confidence and were quick to get on the score board with a goal from Olivia Miller. Some lovely periods of play followed and it was no surprise when player of the match, Gemma Cathcart scored the second goal. The girls kept their concentration until the final whistle and were overjoyed to have won their first fixture and are looking forward to their game against St.Lawrence College next week.

Squad: Mia Murray, Gemma Cathcart (C), Penny Ward, Olivia Miller, Maddie Kelsall, Laura Scott, Rebecca Smith, Isabella Hyde, Sarah Goddard, Alana Fisher, Scarlett Mod-el Tarjornmani (GK)

The team started well and within 5 minutes two goals were scored by Paris Gasson using some excellent individual skill, the team then defended with some excellent pressure by Kings Rochester but unfortunately could not hold on till half time.

Amber played the ball out of defence too Paris who attacked with strength and crossed the ball into the circle to Alice Wilkening who expertly swept the ball into the goal to make it 3 - 1. With a slight lapse in concentration Kings Rochester managed to score one more goal just before full time ending the game at 3 - 2.
