1st XI vs New Hall (L 1-2)
RHS were left feeling deflated after letting their lead slip and narrowly losing to New Hall in a mid-week clash. Despite some excellent passages of play and cohesive build-up work, RHS could not extend the lead created through some great individual skill from Charlie Baldwin-Cole up front. New Hall came back strongly in the second half to take the game 2-1.
U16 at the County Cup
The U16 girls returned from the county cup with mixed emotions. They started with a 2-1 defeat against a strong Framingham side. RHS didn’t play their best hockey, but still created some good chances and managed a goal from a short corner, scored by Millie Orr. In the second game the girls raised their game and played some controlled hockey to come away with a 3-1 win against St Joseph’s, goals coming from Millie Orr and a double from Sophie Rennison. In the final match against Ipswich School, RHS defended with grit and determination to reach half time at 0-0. In the second half the team played some of their best hockey of the night but, unfortunately, so did their opponents and the game finished a 2-0 loss.
U15A vs New Hall (W 3-2)
Looking to build on their strong performance last week, RHS travelled to New Hall wanting to set the tone right from the first whistle. Having not taken their chances in the first half, the first 5 minutes of the second half saw RHS go down 1-0 to a breakaway goal. However, the girls continued with their strong play and did not panic. Without changing their game plan RHS ran out 3-2 winners in a great game, where both New Hall and RHS played quality hockey with purpose.
U14A vs New Hall (L 0-1)
The U14A team suffered their first defeat outside of the county cup on Monday as they lost 0-1 to New Hall. The girls were guilty of trying to force the play at times which meant that despite dominating, very few chances were created. New Hall scored just into the second half and unfortunately the RHS team could not find the break through.
U13A vs Brandeston Hall (L 0-2) and Old Buckenham Hall (W 1-0)
The U13A team travelled to OBH for a triangular set of games against OBH and Brandeston. The girls played Brandeston first and despite improving throughout the match, finished on the wrong end of a 2-0 score line. Despite the monsoon like conditions at times, the game against OBH saw RHS continue to grow into the afternoon’s hockey. In the second half, Mollie Entwistle finally broke the teams scoring duck for the season and put the girls into a 1-0 lead, which they held on to in order to gain their first win of the year.
U13B vs Brandeston Hall (L 0-2) and Old Buckenham Hall (D 1-1)
The U13Bs lost 0-1 against Brandeston Hall in the first game of the tri tournament held at OBH. The girls started well using the space and moving the ball out wide. They were attacking well, putting pressure on the oppositions defence, but unfortunately succumbed to a break-away goal from Brandeston Hall. In the second game, OBH looked strong from the start forcing Lena Clark to make some incredible saves in the first half. The rain came down harder for the start of the second half but the girls took this in their stride and continued with determination. OBH got an early second half goal but RHS managed to score from a short corner in the last play of the game to make it a 1-1 draw.
U12A vs Orwell Park (L 0-4)
The U12A team played some good hockey against Orwell Park and the final score did not reflect the game. The girls played well as a team, moving the ball up and down the pitch with ease, but just lacked that finish in the circle.
U12B vs Orwell Park (0-0)
In tough conditions the U12B team performed admirably and created some good goal scoring opportunities which they failed to convert. When called upon, the defence stood firm and the game ended 0-0.
