Sonning U14G (3) v Reading Rollers (2)
By Chris Roberts
Great first match of the season
Really good play by all of the girls, Mia, Melissa and Ellie were great in central defence, making up for Jorja and Meg moving up to Ladies hockey full time. Izzy B and Freya carried the ball well up the right wing with other Izzy and Katie progressing nicely on the left hand side. The twins and Laura linked up nicely in the midfield and up front.
The best performances were from Bo up front with her two short corner goals (although she could have had another 2 or 3 quite easily). Zainab was fantastic in her first U14 match, aggressive tackling in midfield, lots of running, capped off with a goal.
Esme was voted MOTM by Reading for a great performance in goal, not much to do for the first session but got a great big toe to a shot at the end of the first twenty. She then saved about five shots in the last few minutes as Reading tried to get the equaliser, well done!
