MAGPIES U10 GIRLS IN EAST FINALS
MAGPIES U10 GIRLS REACH THE FINAL – AT THE EAST REGIONAL TOURNAMENT
Saturday saw the U10 Girls in action in the regional finals, they took to the pitch against Upminster for their first match.
Stout defending from Eva Harness and Heather Knights, kept the Upminster attack at bay with Georgie Cantrell settling the tie with a well struck Penalty corner.
Ipswich were there next opponents this time Ellie Goring opened the scoring and Georgie Cantrell finished the tie. Magpies running out 2-0 winners.
With Magpies in full swing Molly Warnes opened the scoring against Sevenoaks after good work from Beth Moodie and Georgie Gardens. Georgie Cantrell gave Magpies daylight, Eva Harness finished off the match slotting home from a penalty corner.
With a draw against Bluehearts, a draw in their final match would be enough to see the girls through to the final. In a closely contested game good defending from Jessie Evans-Hendrick and once again fine goalkeeping from Alice Wiseman saw the girls through to the final.
The Final saw the girls face Blue Hornets, in an entertaining final with chances at both ends. A late goal saw the girls having to chase the game, but were caught on a counter attack sealing their fate.
A great effort from the whole team, all season with this being their only defeat all season.
