Denstone Prep: 8
The Under 11s played their first match of the term when they welcomed an under 11 team from Highclare School to Denstone College Prep.
Isabella Shipley (GD) donned the captain armband for the first time and immediately won the toss. Electing the first centre pass, Holly Clarke (C) got the game underway. A swift passing movement between Holly, Camilla Vernon-Stroud (WA) and Rebecca Frost (GA) found Susannah Ball (GS) who gave Denstone Prep an immediate lead within the first few seconds. Iona McLeod (GK) and Emilia Lane (WD) denied Highclare the chance to get the ball into their shooting ‘D’ and thanks to excellent team-work, Denstone led 5-0 at half time with a hat-trick of goals from Rebecca and a second from Susannah.
The second half saw Isabella Baggaley take over as C and McKenzie Pate (GK) carried on where Iona left off. Isabella Sh and Emilia Lane combined fantastically throughout the game, working together to deny Highclare any shooting opportunities and with Camilla and Rebecca passing and moving expertly to feed Susannah for a second half hat-trick, Denstone Prep ensured they started the term strong with an 8-0 victory.
Girl of the Game: Camilla V-S for her consistent running, interceptions and accurate passing.
