So yesterday we had 6 teams and a couple of our school link teams in action, bit of a busy day!
First up our 2nd team hit the road to Dalston for the second time in 2 weeks, another road trip! We faced Highbury 5 knowing a win would push us up to 2nd place. We also new Highbury would be looking to stop our winning run. Worth pointing out when we played Highbury 5 at the beginning of the season we lost 16-4. We talked about being strong in the collect and ball retention. The first 10 minutes were very tight with neither team being able to score. But Bromley broke the deadlock and never looked back. With hat-tricks from Millie and Ben we never looked like loosing this game and won 10-3. Great result and worthy winners. Thanks to Highbury for another warm welcome in East London.
Next up our 1sts who are looking to secure their regional league status and today’s game was against Supernova 2. We started brightly and managed to get a slender lead early doors and never let the lead slip. We did pull away in the second half by four and despite a rally from supernova we took the points with a 15-12 win great work everyone. Five goals from goals from Mark and some nice goals from Hannah as well.
Next up our juniors in the Kent league.
Under 9s first! We took on Kingfisher and did extremely well with the coach turning up as the whistle blew, thanks Sarah and Jenny for getting the guys organised. It was a really good team display and as the game went on we got better and better and looked like a very good team. Our short/sharp passing looking really good! Good 6-1 win.
Next up our under 11s who faced Bearsted. We started the game well even though we had a number of u9 players in the team. Despite taking an early lead we struggled to hold on to it and Bearsted clawed their way back into game and 8n the end it finished honours even at 6-6.
Last Kent game saw our u13s take on Tornadoes. This was always going to a tough game and we had a conversation about not giving the ball away cheaply. In the first 10 minutes we conceded 4 goals through basic errors and made some changes to try and rectify that. Second half was similar and with a few injuries had to make some enforced changes that didn’t help. We scored 5 goals but couldn’t contain tornadoes. Lots of positives I.e. Bella’s first full league game.
Whilst thus was going another u9 Bromley team and some Hayes team (one of our link schools) took part in London round robin games hosted by Bec. Some great games and excellent performances to report, well done to Natalie and the parents for helping out.
