U9A Hockey v Grace Dieu – Friday 30th Sept
DCPS – 8
Grace Dieu Manor School – 0
The under 9A girls played superbly well as a team to defeat Grace Dieu under 9A girls 8 – 0. With four goals coming in the first four minutes from Darcie W; the team Captain Verity B who made three fine kick clearances as goal keeper; Tilly D full of running and strong tackling throughout; Daisy H speedy up and down the wings; Verity H who never stopped running and ran 60 metres in the 27th minute to make a superb defensive tackle when players were getting tired; Esther B who was always willing to get stuck in and make some tackles and Phoebe A who was very good at moving her marker around the pitch looked superb on the pitch. Some fantastic teamwork led to a further three goals for Darcie and one goal for Daisy H and great defensive work ensured that Grace Dieu were never able to get any clear shots on goal. A superb team performance girls.

U9B Hockey v Grace Dieu – Friday 30th Sept
DCPS – 4
Grace Dieu Manor School – O
The under 9B girls hockey team made their debut away at Grace Dieu Manor School. The team, captained by Su Shan W started well with good teamwork and talking. Both DCPS and Grace Dieu took time to find their way in their first school hockey match before the midfield duo of Isla S and Evangeline P found their feet and started to dominate play in the centre of the pitch. Caoimhe C and Katie W worked fantastically well to cover defensive duties between them with Caoimhe pushing forward to score a goal at one point. Under 8’s Tilly M was fantastically good at running all over the pitch and pleasingly Emily H grew in confidence throughout the match. Two goals from Isla S and one from Evangeline P in addition to Caoimhe’s strike left the final score at 4 – 0 to DCPS which was fully deserved due to all of the girls hard work throughout the game. Well done girls.
