Worthian Girls Sporting Day 2013

Worthian Girls Sporting Day

2013 Match Report

Yet another successful day of Worthian sport was played on 7th September 2013 and this year for the first time included both hockey and netball teams. The 7-aside hockey match was made up of a selection of old girls including the first intake and newest leavers. Being slightly unfit, from what I can only imagine was due to a lack of exercise and a summer of over indulgence, the team was in good spirits and ready to take on the current girls who appeared much more structured and organised. There was a huge crowd of supporters ready to cheer everyone on for what was hopefully going to be a very entertaining match.

The current Worth girls showed some really skillful play and teamwork which led them to a quick goal in the first half scored by Bryony Maxwell. However the old girls fought back and after a great through ball their first goal was provided by Hermione Wilkinson which equalled the scores. There was some great and well thought out play by the current Worth girls who dominated the second half of thematch as the oldies began to tire. Some strong breaks up the wing allowed two more brilliant goals to be scored by the school despite some lunging saves by the Worthian goalie Jessica Cook. The whistle blew and the score was 3–1. Unsurprising to the current first team however both teams made a great effort. A special mention to Molly Cummins (current Yr 10) who played brilliantly.

Next it was on to the first time netball match where some fresh faces joined both teams. The old girls placed themselves into some mismatch positions but this didn’t seem to disadvantage them as they took the lead in the first quarter. There was some great attacking play by Sarah Turner which led to some accurate shooting by Issy Rothman. However the current girls came back in the second half with some well-rehearsed and well executed plays to equal the scores. After some moments of what seemed like utter chaos and some of complete uniformity by both teams, Issy Rothman scored in the last minute of the final quarter which saw the Worthians win the match by a single point with a score of 8–7.

Thank you to all who played both matches. It was great to see so many of both old and current girls. Thank you also to all the supporters who watched and cheered. Special thanks goes to Sam Clark and Jo Barnes for coaching and umpiring the matches, and Olivia Henley for organising yet another successful event.  It was a great day and I’m sure we’ll all be looking forward to next year.
