After a somewhat shaky first half of the season, the 1st team girls were determined to redeem themselves and began with a convincing win over Queen Elizabeth School of 24-0, followed by a comfortable victory over St Edmunds of 17-6.
On the 1st March, a depleted 1st VII went away to City of London Girls School, (many of the Lower Sixth were unable to attend due to mocks), so the team had to be rearranged to amend some gaps. Luckily with Priya Visavadia and Sarah Peters’ accurate shooting, the team was able to bring the ball skillfully into the circle and secure many goals including the final one to ensure a 17-16 victory. Special mentions must go to Lauren Abrahams and Nicole Harvey who worked hard in the attacking third and Georgia Green, Heloise Brittain and Sarah Tingle in defence.
The most recent success was last weekend at Kimbolton where the girls were back to full strength, and despite having lost to this team last year were determined to give it their all. You could see a real hunger and drive in the girls that really helped to ensure that marking was tight and shooting was precise. Tali Webster and Georgia Green worked endlessly in the defensive circle and often made some exceptional interceptions. Nicole Harvey played extremely well, orchestrating the game and ended up being awarded player of the match. Yet another close game ending with 19-18 victory.
To add to this list of victories, the girls had yet another win over Haileybury on 8th March, a very close game which resulted in Mill Hill winning by 1 goal.
