Both teams were equally matched: our girls were a bit nervous in the first half, and it showed in their performance. The first half went to Herschel with a score of 4-2. In the second half Wynberg got into rhythm and intercepted one of Herschel’s centre passes. We had loads of opportunities, but just couldn’t score.

The final score of the game was 8-7 to Herschel. It was  a narrow defeat, and we are certainly happy with the improvement our girls have shown.

Starting off with anticipation, our girls let the speed of the game get the better of them. With the ball getting to Wynberg’s circle. our shooters were unable to secure each shot taken. At  half time, Herschel was leading 7-4. In the second half, our shooters lost steam only scoring 3 goals. The final score was 13-7 to Herschel. Player of the match went to Erin Slater.

It was regrettable that our girls failed to perform in the way that they are capable: bunching and failing to stick to perimeters were part of the problem. By the end of the first half Herschel led 5-2. The second half went better, but we need to work on our defence and communication. Despite this the girls enjoyed the game and the spirit in which they played was awesome. The final score was 9-4 in Herschel’s favour. Player of the match went to Sarah Underwood.
