Match Report
Oundle School Girls-U16A vs  Uppingham School
On: Saturday, 20 Jan 2018
Venue: Away

Last Saturday the U16As travelled to Uppingham; we arrived and did our warm up in the snow but thankfully the skies cleared in time for the match to begin. After a rather big loss to Repton the week before we were all determined to improve our play both individually and as a team. After a very close first half we were up by 10 goals to 9 however in the third quarter we began to tire and our standard of play dropped significantly, by the end of the quarter Uppingham were in the lead 13-16. After a motivational team talk we went out determined to beat them and despite winning this final 15 minutes it wasn’t quite enough to win the whole match and the final score was 21-24 to Uppingham. Despite the loss the game brought about much improvement and highlighted some key areas in which we need to work on. I hope that we can bring this positivity and improved play into next week and hopefully gain some much improved results after the exeat.
