Hillside 6 Homefield 7
We were invited to our first match of the season away at Hillside this evening. It was scorching hot but fortunately so was Adam Platten's shooting. Maisie scored a cracking goal too at a crucial part of the game.
It was end to end action and proved very difficult to watch as the final quarter drew to a close. This was our first ever match with this group of children and although we went ahead 3-1 after the first quarter it did feel as though we needed more time to settle into the game.
Congratulations to the whole team, including Louis (who kept score) and Joshua who came to support as a reserve, who held their nerve to clinch the victory.
We had Adam and Maisie shooting, Evie then Abigail and Ethan in defence. We had Marissa and Rhiannon on the wings with Bethany holding it all together in the Centre. I'm very proud of the team's conduct. Adam was an excellent captain. Well done team Homefield!
