Match Report
Marlborough College U15 A vs  Downe House
On: Saturday, 25 Nov 2023
Venue: Away

Two short competitive matches for the U15As against Downe House U15A and U14A which both resulted in two narrow 3-4 losses to Marlborough. A longer game may have finished with a different result. Marlborough were a much-improved side - with a solid defensive unit which slowed down fast breaks and provided strong slides. A great game for Alexis in goal - who led the defence from goal with her strong communication. Mid field showed great fitness in covering the metres up and down the pitch for both games - slowing down Downe House's transitions. Marlborough goals were won through both fast breaks and some creative play in our settled attack. It is always encouraging to see the goals shared across the attackers. Two good matches which have highlighted the need to work on increased movement in attack - pass and go - rather than watching the ball after each pass.

MVPs: Emilia Bushnell and Sariya Lewis (vs U15A). Lily Ivanovic and Amelie Shemilt (vs U14A).

Goal Scorers: Rosie Langdale, Emilia Bushnell (2), Mariella Costa Duarte, Amelie Shemilt, Eliza Dalton'
