A minutes silence started the game against Raiders in memory of one of their players passing last week, Lizzie Watkins.
The game started as a fairly even match, albeit a scrappy affair and the deadlock was broken from a short corner with Kristen Henshaw tapping in at the post. The match continued in the same vane until the last minute of the half, when Raiders equalised.
The second half was not inspiring for Rocky and although some girls put in plenty of running, as a team did not do some of the basics and ended up going down 5-1 to an average team, that in their coaches words “played the best hockey he had ever seen from them”.
So heads up girls and let’s come out fighting next week!
