Under 10 Hockey Rogers Rockets v Paragon School

Date: 9th October 2019

Venue: Home

Opposition: Paragon school

Score: 3-1 to Paragon

Captain: Heidi Ashton

On Wednesday the 9th of October, the U10 girls played Paragon school. The first match was played by Rogers’ Rockets who started the game off. Going in with some great tackles from Isabella Blake and Heidi Ashton and passing out wide to Willow Williams who was running down the wing with pace. Paragon were a strong squad and managed to score a goal. We stayed strong and kept working hard to mark and tackle. Paragon managed to get the ball down to the other end but Maisie Warner in defence had a spectacular hit that got the ball out of the D. The ball was passed out to En Xuan Tan who tackled brilliantly and drove out into space.

Then we had half time and everybody was very puffed out! In the second half we were all fighting for the ball. We got the ball swiftly down our end and into the D and there were a few shots on goal. Paragon fought back with a shot which was boldly saved by Lulu Matthews in goal. A lovely hit by Isabella Blake all the way up the pitch which was handed on and quickly in the D. And at that very moment, the heavens opened and we all got drenched! But we still kept battling on and Caitlyn Field managed to score a magnificent goal! Still with only about ten minutes left, we held strong and Willow Williams had a shot but Paragon made a great save.

Time was up and we ended the game by congratulating Paragon for such an amazing match. Well done everybody!

U10 Super Swarfs v Paragon School

Wednesday 9th Oct 2019

Captain: Estella Fawden

Final Score: 2-0 Win

Player of the Match: Petra Kidd

We started our game against Paragon in high spirits despite the wet weather. Lulu Matthews held her position in goal to make some great saves with the help of Petra Kidd and Isabella Blake in defence. The pace was fast and Tohar Westwell and Madeleine Dunn held their positions on the wings to open up play. Madeleine Dunn took a great shot at goal and the Paragon goalkeeper saved it, however the quick reactions of Tohar Westwell ensured that the rebound then went in and Wells went into the lead 1-0 as the half time whistle blew.

In the second half Paragon attacked our goal circle and Petra Kidd made a great tackle and sent the ball wide to Estella Fawden. Heidi Ashton took the ball into the goal circle and showed some great stick skills. Paragon tackled and defended with all their might however Estella Fawden managed to win the ball back and score our second goal of the game. En Xuan Tan subbed on for Isabella Blake who had already had a fantastic game playing for Rogers Rockets. A special mention to Lulu Matthews, Heidi Ashton and En Xuan Tan, along with Isabella Blake who played in both games that afternoon. The full-time whistle blew and the final score was 2-0 to Wells and Petra Kidd was nominated by Paragon as the player of the match. Thank you to Mrs Bain for umpiring the game and well-played team!
