The tournament started in a bit of a rush following a delay in transport due to traffic so the team did brilliantly to warm up extremely quickly and get on the pitch against St Mary's Calne and prevent any goals from being scored for the first few minutes of the game with some fabulous defence from the Marlborough players.

In the second game of the day against Godolphin As, Marlborough put up a great fight but with some very powerful shooters on their side it was hard to stop them even with some great saves from Hebe in goal. Lottie scored the first goal of the tournament.

The third game was a much tighter one, with everything to play for, a beautiful draw straight in to Mirabel's stick and a wonderful ground ball under pressure from Amaira.

The final game of the tournament started with tired legs, but the team really fought hard in a very close fought match- we look forward to playing Sherborne again soon in a few weeks!

Magic moments from the day, not already mentioned:

-A great one-handed catch from Millie at the top of the fan

-A behind the back shot and goal from Lottie!

-Wonderful defence from Honor denying many opposition players freedom in the fan

-Fabulous drive from CC to goal.

-Eylul staying back on the fan in defence to protect the goal

-Matilda's wonderful man-to-man defence

-Emily Wells' amazing re-defending of her opposition players off their goalie clears.
