Match Report
Leicester Grammar School 1st XI vs  Bablake School
On: Wednesday, 02 Oct 2019
Venue: at Home

Leicester Grammar 1st XI hockey team hosted Bablake in our second hockey game of the week. Our first goal came from Chiara Bensi who eliminated the goalkeeper in a 1v1 situation. At half time we were leading 1-0. The second half saw a further five goals being scored. Bablake equalised from a well worked goal but we reacted to this and bounced back to score another goal which was well worked from the back. This was scored by Harriet Prior with help from Chiara. Unfortunately, Leicester Grammar then conceded two more goals meaning we were 3-2 down with ten minutes to go. We were determined not to lose the game narrowly and some great play between Chiara and Harriet meant that the ball was kept in our attacking D, working the goalkeeper as we did so. Soon, Harriet was able to react to a rebound ball mid-air, volleying the shot calmly into the net to make it 3-3. In the last minute, we had two short corners to try and win the game, but our efforts were denied. The final score was 3-3 which both teams thought reflected the game fairly. Thank you to Mrs Laybourne for coaching us.
