Well…..what an amazing game today from the team…in a titanic battle of the ages against Heretaunga college who finished one place above us in the Wellington P3 competition.
On a wet and windy field we were a goal down early, only to fight back for a 2:1 lead at half time. It was an intense battle in the second half with Heretaunga scoring with 3min to go for a 2:2 scoreline at full time. We then went into 5min of golden goal with two players, including our goalie dropped to the bench. There was no score after 5min so we dropped another two players to field seven players for 5min of additional extra time. Then with 3min to go Chilton moved the ball into the opposition circle deftly….past to defenders….and then drilled the ball into the back of the Heretaunga net to win 3:2. Our first win of the tournament!!
The players should all be very proud of their effort today….and they really enjoyed themselves (check out the Pic below).
The Sports Department would like to take this opportunity to thank all our coaches, managers, umpires and volunteers who have helped to make this week such a huge success for our girls.
