U11A Hockey v Grace Dieu – 20th September 2017
The U11A hockey team led by joint captains Mia and Grace played Grace Dieu Manor School on our home grass pitch. Despite hard work by Georgina, a solid and ever dependant defender who worked tirelessly to keep the ball out of our defending D, nothing could be done to stop Grace Dieu’s onslaught. Excellent effort from Darcie, Hannah and Mia to try and work the ball forward up the pitch was met by a stalwart Grace Dieu defence meaning that the forwards had very limited opportunities for shots at goal, however, Izzy W and Izzy C always looked lively trying their best to make room for the ball to be fed into the D. Excellent work from Tilly D and Daisy to continually strive to win the ball for Denstone Prep meant DCPS never stopped trying but Verity B was unlucky with the unstoppable Grace Dieu shots on goal.
U11B Hockey v Grace Dieu
The U11B team were unlucky against Grace Dieu. Eloise played tremendously well in only her second game in goal. Caoimhe and Esther proved themselves very capable defenders despite the onslaught they faced from Grace Dieu attackers. Evangeline was impressive in the centre of the pitch and Cleo put in some hard running up and down the wings. Emily and Uma continued to grow in confidence in front of goal and were unlucky not to nick some goals whilst Phoebe and Su Shan continued to develop their understanding of the game and the confidence to get stuck in.
