Match Report

THE EAGLES are into the AVON LEAGUE FINALS......CONGRATULATIONS LADIES!!!!!!!!! 2-1 winners over a very strong and talented Stourport team....the first half our girls blow Stourport off the park leading 2 - 0 at half-time, the best hockey of the season. Again, Tabby with her lightening speed runs down the right crossing the ball to the penalty spot Millie slapping it in. Second goal, Kara's tiger-like hunting in front of goal pounce on a mistake with desperate defending they could not stop the ball going in off a defender. Our defensive heros Nia, Mariel, Ruby and Ellie, provided stern tight defence throughout the game.....then Stourport came back, second half pressure from Stourport allowed them a life line when they converted a corner with 10 minutes to go.....then started the seige on TBB's 23 metre line....again and again we repelled their attacks and corners and finally the fulltime whistle we defended the last corner to take victory!!!! Poppy was selected by Stourport as MOM, and I agree, great work from Poppy saving her best for the finals. Special mention to Eliie, played a excellent game, making many saves, and one where she dived behind her to hit the ball off the goal line....Again, superb all round team performance. Final vs Cirencester on the 7th May at UWE.
