GU14 Wrens 4 - 3 Hertford GU14 Lionesses (A) (by Olivia & Amelie)
EH Girls U14 Tier 1 Cup
The Wrens had a challenging game against a tough team up in Hertford. After going one goal down early on in the first half, they came back with two goals from Amelie and another from Lila.
After an intense team talk at half time from Will, they went out and conceded two goals! In the dying seconds of the game, Surbiton won a short corner which was re-awarded twice, leading to a penalty stroke. Amelie Rose H stepped up to the ball and smashed it into the side net of the goal leaving the goalkeeper shocked.
Final score 4-3 with a hat-trick for Amelie as Surbiton progress to the next round.

Comets vs Sevenoaks
Very competitive game for the Comets against Sevenoaks. The girls worked so hard and fought for the Plate. The game ended 3-3, goals scored by Rhiannon, Daisy, and Alexa. Due to the game ending in a draw, it meant it went down to Shuffles. Lilia, Sofia, Sereya, Rhiannon and Amelie stepped forward to take the shuffles. Sofia, Rhiannon, and Amelie scored their shuffles and three players from Sevenoaks scored too which meant it now went down to sudden death. Lilia went first and scored which meant if Phoebe saved the next shuffle the girls would have won. Phoebe did exactly that and the girls celebrated, and all ran up to her. It was was definitely a proud moment for the parents and players, really well done to everyone and congratulations to Molly O’B for being selected as Player of the Match.
