Kettering U12’s Girls at Northampton
A great effort from the team!
Kettering Hockey Club Girls U12 played two Northampton sides at a cold and windy Moulton College. Due to County commitments the team was missing a few of their regular players but they put in a commendable performance.
The first game was against Northampton A and the majority of the action took place in the Kettering half. The team defended well, with some good goalkeeping and a few spirited runs into Northampton’s half to keep the full-time score at 3-0 to Northampton A.
During the respite of next game Michelle Tanser took the opportunity to practice some drills and positional play with the team. This practice paid off in the next game against Northampton B, who despite getting two early goals against Kettering were then held to an even match until halfway through the second half when Northampton B found Kettering’s goal. The match ended 3-0 to Northampton B.
The team put in a commendable performance against some strong opposition and should be proud of how they played; it’s good to see that Kettering Juniors have strength in depth and bodes well for the future of the club. The team was admirably captained by Lucy Tanser who ensured her players were well positioned and knew what they had to do.
