Starter and Key Questions:
Q: It’s raining and cold, but do we go home? No, we can do this!
Q: How do we start a match?
With a strong pushback and looking for the easy passes.
That’s just what we did, for the first half the South ladies held most of the possess keeping the ball in our attacking half. We earnt ourselves a few short corners and made many shots on goal. Braintree, had a great defence who made strong passes to their midfielders, allowing them to make a few breaks towards their attacking goal. Nevertheless, the L4s finished the first half 2-0 up. Not a bad start to the first match after Christmas.
Q: What’s the most important thing in hockey?
Communication! In the second half we stepped up our communication and increased the short fast passes as we travelled up the pitch. We began to pre-scan resulting in 5 more goals.
Forwards: Many chances for shots on goals. Great runs to the baseline. 3 short corners and looking back for a pass.
Midfield: Great runs, interceptions and positioning.
Defenders: Excellent tackles and play round the back opening up the play and creating space to drive the ball up the pitch.
A special thanks to Cantabs, the wood burner was greatly appreciated. Great pizza, great chat!
