Blogs and News - St George's School For Girls, Edinburgh
This weekend saw the U-15 lacrosse team play in their first competitive games of the season. A windy but thankfully rain-free morning with an occasional rainbow created almost perfect playing conditions. Our first game against Fettes was a close affair as the girls got used to the pace and new playing formation of 10 a-side. A 4-4 draw was a positive start with both teams missing the goal in the last few moments to take the lead. Next up was Glenalmond College.
This was again a tight game, but our defence was now settled and communicating well. They had some fast skilled players who were difficult to slow but the defence held them out and some excellent saves by the goal-keeper meant we won the game 6-4. Our midfield and attack worked tirelessly to create scoring opportunities. Finally, the last group game was against Loretto. Our confidence was apparent from the start. A convincing win, a clean sheet defensively with 6 goals for St George’s. After some much needed warm soup, we prepared for the 1st/2nd playoffs which saw us meet Glenalmond again.
The girls impressed with their focus and attention, keeping the ball safe and denying the opposition anytime to settle on the ball. The final score was 8-3, a hard-earned win against a good Glenalmond side ensuring the overall win.
Well done to all the players in what was a very successful start to the season!
