The 3rd XI v Felsted (a) L2-0
The 3rd XI seemed to suffer from the coach journey and were very sluggish in their initial attempts to play on a slow astro turf at Felsted. They let the home side play the more attractive team hockey and ended up being 2 goals down. RHS needed to move the ball around a little more particularly down the right-hand side. Alice Vickers had a good game in goal.
1st XI v Felsted (a) L 5-0
The 1st XI played a tough game against Felsted midweek. RHS struggled to capitalise on their performance the week before against Wymondham and although there were some good snippets of play, the well-drilled opposition smothered the promising opportunities created. There were positive performances by Meg Langford and Anna Wynn.
U15 XI v St Joseph’s (h) W 2-0
The under 15 A team recorded a solid win against St Joseph’s College. They dominated possession throughout the first half and narrowly missed several scoring opportunities in the first half. During one of several penalty corners, Millie Orr’s goal was disallowed because only half of the ball made it into the goal, as it cracked in half from her powerful strike. In the second half she tried again and this time Sophie Rennison made a great deflection to jumpstart the scoring for RHS. Millie Ainsworth followed soon after with a second goal and the team held St. Joseph’s for a secure 2-0 win at home.
