Lansdown Vixens v Sherborne Vixens Monday, October 13, 2008Posted by kelzconibere in Cheltenham Hockey, Juniors, ladies vixens, Match Report.
Sunday 12th October at the Cotswold School
Won 1 – 0
Lansdown Vixens (U16s) team have struggled to field a team for recent fixtures but on Sunday 12th October, they started with great promise and secured a 1-0 win against the Cotswold based team, Sherborne.
Lansdown opened the game well in hot and sunny conditions. Some great passing moves saw them break through the Sherborne defence a number of times in the first half but at half time the score remained 0-0.
Sherbourne came out strong in the second half and mounted a number of attacks but a solid defence from the Lansdown side throughout the game meant that Sherbourne were unable to cross the goal line and the new Lansdown keeper Alice Hobbs was never really tested.
Lansdown continued to exert pressure in the second half and an attacking play down the left of the pitch saw Holly Wright send the ball into Clare Moliver who put the ball into the back of the goal just left of the Sherborne keeper. There was some great play from both teams and Sherborne fought hard and tested the Lansdown players until the final whistle.
All the team worked extremely hard and some lovely hockey was played. Special congratulations to Claire Moliver (goal scorer) who was chosen as the player of the match by the Sherborne players.
The Vixens team will come up against Cheltenham next Sunday 19th October at 10.30am, Bournside School.
