Match Report
Leicester Grammar School 1st XI vs  Ratcliffe College
On: Thursday, 28 Nov 2019
Venue: at Home

Leicester Grammar 1st XI hockey team hosted our last friendly match of the 2019/2020 hockey season against Ratcliffe. In the first ten minutes, both sides had their fair share of chances, but it was Leicester Grammar who scored first. Harriet Prior found the back of the net, with Charlotte Lewis assisting. The team played with high intensity, passing and communicating well between us. An unlucky deflection meant Ratcliffe were able to equalise. A period of counterattacks from Leicester Grammar towards the end of the first half lead to a penalty flick being awarded to us. Anna Kendall stepped up to convert the flick meaning were 2-1 up at half time. In the second half, Chiara Bensi scored our third goal but Ratcliffe shortly scored afterwards meaning the match was still to play for at 3-2. Leicester Grammar were able to hold the lead for the rest of the game as we rotated players from the bench. We were all very happy with the win. Thank you to Mrs Laybourne and Miss Feeney for coaching and supporting us.
