The Grove U8 Hockey vs Quinton House School

Quinton House arrived with 2 teams to play which was unexpected but gave The Grove lots of game play which was welcomed at this time of the year. Our first match was against their 'A' team and although it was the first ever fixture for our U8 girls playing, the game was very competitive throughout with some excellent attacking play from Oluwadabira Filani as centre midfield and Alexa O’Kane as centre forward. Unfortunately the team found it hard to switch from attack to defence and haven’t yet established the skill of tackling, so Quinton managed to score 2 goals pushing easily past our midfield and defence. After a team talk at the end of the match the girls were then ready for their second match against Quinton 'B' team. The Grove took control of the game fantastically well and in no time at all Alexa O’Kane scored with a super run through to goal. Soon after Oluwadabira Filani demonstrated some good individual skill on the ball and with sheer determination scored the second goal for The Grove. The second half was much the same with The Grove dominating the game and we soon secured 2 more goals from Ifeoluwa Adekanmbi and another from Alexa O’Kane.

Well done girls. A super start to the season from the U8 girls.
