First Team Report

On Saturday 7th May, Wynberg Girls first team took on DF Malan. The game was a must-win 3-pointer to progress in the league.
The girls took the pressure positively, and went out with a positive mindset and overall good spirit.

In the first chukka, odds were in Wynberg’s favour for the majority of it, dominating DF Malan. They were rattled and all over the place, struggling to find passes and make effective connections. A good build-up play and line balls resulted in Raniya Khan’s getting an early goal in.

Another good build-up and send-in from across the 25 straight in from the left in allowed the strikers to convert another goal with Raniya Khan’s putting it in again. At half time, after 2 chukkas, the score was 2-0 to Wynberg.

Wynberg did not take their foot off the gas at the beginning of the 2nd half, but DF Malan was quite determined to score as well. In the third chukka, Wynberg let go of a counter-attack and DF Malan scored. Score 2-1. It wasn’t until Kayla Morgan made use of her opportunities just a few moments later, that she scored for Wynberg leaving a considerable gap.

In the fourth chukka, Wynberg lost some composure, but managed to keep DF Malan out until the last 40 seconds where they capitalized and scored off a short corner. The final result was 3-2 win for Wynberg and a very pleasing performance against DF Malan.
