U11 Crosskeys 9 vs 15 Cheshunt Wormley 19th April 2018

The first match of the summer league and we had to take on a number of unexpected mishaps. Our umpire, Pat had to contend with her car breaking down but still managed to arrange to be available to be picked up so that we arrived just in time. Two of our usual squad had withdrawn previously. But unfortunately, and for good reasons, two of our squad couldn’t make it on the day. So we took to the court with just 6 players playing in an untried formation. But this squad is a spirited bunch. And fought hard for every quarter. We improved every quarter losing by a couple of goals in each quarter but got it together to win the last quarter 3-2.
Our defence of Kacey and Juliette, without the protection of a WD, were outstanding and showed how they have developed as a combination and how well they play under pressure. And how well they manage when decisions go against them. Milly, Darcey, Ruby and Rhiana eventually were to prove an effective attacking combination. Final score: we lost 9-15.
Thanks to all the parents for their support in the struggle on the day. Praise is due for all the team’s efforts.
POM voted by Cheshunt Squad: Milly — deservedly in only her second match for Crosskeys.
Coach POM: Rhiana showing such determination.
Our Squad: Kacey(capt), Juliette, Milly, Darcey, Ruby and Rhiana.
Thanks to Louise for stepping in to organise the team, for her coaching and encouraging the team in unusually difficult circumstances, and to Pat for her resourcefulness and her even-handed, cheerful, umpiring.
Points noted from the match for practice in next training session:
It has to be:
• How to manage and overcome feelings of frustration and disappointment, with a depleted squad, and when many decisions go against you and still maintain your game and your determination to play your best in a game.
• Passing: timing, movement and thinking — for every session!
