EGHC's Ladies 1st Team suffered defeat at the Semi-Final stage for the second year in succession yesterday. Click through for match highlights and for further comments...
EGHC's Ladies continued to make their mark on English Hockey yesterday. While the result was heartbreaking after leading 1:0 until the final quarter, the performance of EG's girls throughout was excellent. With a number of squad members making their second appearance at this stage in the season, the side looked more assured and put in a strong team performance with a number of the younger players suggesting there is even more to come.
The match highlights do not reflect the EG performance; England Hockey essentially clipping the goals, but the girls will need some time to pick themselves up and dust themselves down.
For now, they deserve our total congratulations for continuing to progress as a group, with this only their third season in the premiership and two semi-final appearances already under their belt.
