Match Report
Sherborne Girls Girls-U18B vs  Millfield School
On: Saturday, 30 Sep 2023
Venue: Away

The 2nd XI came up against a very strong Millfield team and we played some of the best hockey I have seen. The game started with us being very composed on the ball and transferring the ball well through the defence and midfield. We held our shape and looked liked we were well in control. The game turned as the strength of the Millfield midfield and forward line started to make inroads into our D. The power and precision of their shooting was too much for the girls, and for a period of about 10 minutes we seemed to be in a state of shock, Millfield scored a number of goals quite quickly, but suddenly the girls regained their composure and closed off the channels that Millfield were playing down. The second half was much closer, we closed the door on their scoring, and defended numerous short corners. I am exceptionally proud of the girls, they played with passion and aggression, they didn't back down from the challenge. We didn't manage to create much opportunity to score, but we did play some excellent hockey. The result doesn't matter in this match - they way we played and fought in the game was extremely impressive. Well done girls.
