U15A Girls Triumphant in the First Round of the Cup

The U15A girls hosted Norwich school in the first round of the Independent Schools National Cup on Thursday. The match got off to a tense start with Gresham’s missing a host of chances and Norwich going close once. Gresham’s took the lead in the 19th minute and from there did not look back, scoring two more in quick succession to cruise into a 3-0 lead. Norwich converted a penalty corner on the stroke of half time to set up an exciting second half. Grace H-K took the bull by the horns and with some excellent play by Drew W and Georgia D Gresham’s scored 3 goals in 5 minutes to take a 6-1 lead. Phoebe B and Darcey F continued to run at the Norwich defence and created a host of chances in the latter stages which Georgia lapped. An excellent display by the whole team saw us run away 9-1 winners on the day, and the girls head into the next round with their tails up looking for more goals!
