On: Wednesday, 27 Sep 2023
Venue: at Home

A fantastic game of hockey for this new side against Gillingham. With both teams playing without a GK it was a dynamic and exciting game with end to end play. We scored early on taking the lead but were quickly thwarted by a strong and enthusiastic side. Gillingham quickly found there feet and scored three goals in succession.

Heading into the half time team talk we were 1-3 down, but there were lots of positives to discuss. Mainly moving the ball earlier and with pace out wide were the main aims.

We started the second half working on those principles and quickly found space moving forwards. From then on we had plenty of shots on goal and quickly moved the s ore board on. With 5 minutes to go we had pulled it back to 3-4 with goals from Imogen and Makeda.

A good passage of play resulted in a lovely goal to equalize with the match ending 4-4. A fair result in an exciting game.
