Match Report
Sherborne Preparatory School Girls-1st Team vs  Clayesmore School
On: Wednesday, 08 Nov 2023
Venue: at Home

Another excellent display from the girls today and a hatful of goals. So many good individual performances to mention starting with Beatrix's four goals, she was so desperately keen to get a fifth and get a personal record but that will have to be saved for another day. Tilly subbed on as a centre forward and scored two, for me the highlight of her game was intelligent running into space as well as chasing down the opposition defenders to win the ball. All of the girls who played on the wings (Martha, Tabby, Freya and Elodie) showed moments of excellence and crossed to ball intelligently to set up simple tap ins for team mates as well as marking well and tackling hard. They all at different time ran forward strongly with the ball to take the play away from our D and into attack. Rosie played really well in the middle making excellent passes to set up crosses or tap ins as well as scoring three. In defence a mixture of Alma, Bella and wingers who stepped into the back line kept Clayesmore to very few shots, most of these were excellently saved by Hattie or Esme who kept goal for a half each.

All in all a most satisfying afternoon for a wonderful group of girls. Keep working hard, keep trying and most of all, keep smiling.
